a fair chance

“This is essentially a people’s contest whose leading object is to elevate the condition of men – to lift artificial weights from all shoulders – to clear the paths of laudable pursuit for all – to afford all, an unfettered start and a fair chance, in the race of life.”

A. Lincoln ~ Message to the Congress, 4 July 1861
