Constitution 101

I think it is time for basic introduction to the Constitution of the United States. In this line of thinking let us examine the Constitution and just exactly what it says.


The Preamble:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure 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.

So what does this mean? Let's take a closer look.

"We the People", this is simple. We, us, I , you are the people. The Citizens of the United States of America, that is who "We the People" are.

"To form a more perfect Union", a union of what? A union is the coming together of several different or similar things. In this case the individual States, at the time the Thirteen Colonies. They joined together in a union to form a greater state. This being a Country.

"establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the Common Defense", to bring order and a sense of equality across the union in a fair, yet equal outline from a centralised federal government. This government is to protect the individual States equally by providing a military made up of the separate yet combined states.

"Promote the General Welfare", to see that no one singular state or person is lording over another in morals or in economic viability. To ensure that every one has the same chance to better them selves without favor to one over another.

"secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Prosperity", to protect and continue without hindrance the ability to stay free and protect it for future generations. Prosperity in this case would be the future generations.

"do Ordain and establish this Constitution", this is meaning to recognise an established document we know as the Constitution of the United States, as the legitimate document in which the powers, authority, and outline of operations is written.

This is the Preamble of the Constitution, not to be confused with the opening paragraph of the Declaration of Independence.
