We the People in order to form a more perfect union, a noble concept in the preamble of the United States Constitution has given faith to many people though out history who thought that they could make life for their families better by making life better for all in our great nation.
Through the years we have seen many times where those words rang out resonating with a patriotic song that has gotten us through times like the world wars and the great depression. We have also see many times where those words were trampled on like they were worthless in their meaning, like how the soldiers were treated when they came home after the Vietnam War ended.
In the short history of The United States we have seen our share of leaders who have done great things for either good or bad but we as a nation of the people and by the people, are at a crossroad for which we the people have to step up and ask that our government do things that are stated in the preamble of the constitution like:
- 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
How can we have justice if we turn a blind eye to the tyranny of certain individuals who would work against the text and the spirit of the Constitution by enacting laws that work outside the constitution or hide what they are doing?
How are we insuring domestic tranquility when people are at each others throats over issues that need to be addressed on the national level but are being pushed aside in favor of other things?
How can we provide for the common defense when most of our defense is off playing peace maker in other countries, leaving us vulnerable to forces both within or from outside that would attack us?
How are we promoting general welfare when budgets for agencies geared for general welfare are constantly being slashed in favor of larger budgets for special interests?
How can we secure the blessings of liberty when there are some who would take those blessings away?
Our posterity is our legacy and if we do not take stock in what we pass on and how we will be remembered by future generations then we would have failed in what our forefathers had established in an attempt to make life better for all who live here.
