Preambling

June 23, 2008

In a quiet moment during this American election season, I thought it would be fitting to recall the words of the American Founders, who offered six reasons for establishing the government of the United States of America. The sometimes unusual capitalization is from the document itself…the Preamble to the Constitution:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
