We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, 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.
The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America is one of the most beautifully constructed paragraphs in history. It sets out the reason why our Founding Fathers spent countless hours devising a system of government which has outlasted kings, nations, philosophies and 244 years of history. It sets the tone for our Republic. That’s right, our Republic. We are not a democracy but a Republic where consent for governance comes from WE THE PEOPLE.
The question we all face today is will we keep it? We cannot shirk our duty as citizens of the United States of America to continue governance of the people, by the people and for the people. Think about it friends! What it will it be for your future and the future of your children and grandchildren,
As Abraham Lincoln so eloquently stated…..
“That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.”
