"We The People..."

The Preamble

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide fro the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution fro the United States of America.

What does that mean??
The Preamble is the introduction to the Constitution. I think it is there to list the reasons that the beginning colonies came together to form one union. Those reasons are as follows: ensure freedom for the current time as well as future generations, create a better justice system, ensure peace, make a single national defense forces instead of many small groups and last but not least to work for the common good of everyone in the United States.

What was that video??

I felt he same as Barney Fife in this clip. In Junior High I had to learn as well as recite the Preamble to the class and I thought it would always be stuck in my head, I was wrong. I would start out real strong until I got to “…provide fro the common defense...” And at that point I started the stumbling and guessing. I suppose after seven years I have lost half of the preamble in my head.
