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.* (Preamble to the Constitution of United States)
We the People, by Gods providence, formed the Constitution of the United States of America. It was a Model of Liberty. Its laws favored no people and insured peace and protection for its citizens. It promoted prosperity and every liberty imaginable to a free nation.
America became the greatest nation on earth. We the People were united by freedoms cause. There were no bounds of opportunity in our free society. We the People dreamed big dreams and Yankee ingenuity yielded abundant fulfillment.
We the People could speak freely, worship freely, and teach our children the benefits of living in a republic, where all were represented equally. We the People could afford to generously help other nations. America enjoyed the Blessings of Liberty.
We the People began to tire from the responsibilities that come with Liberty and allowed We the Government to take its place. It was fine at first. After all, We the Government had done a good job of writing laws and defending the nation. We the Government assumed the role of overseeing Education and Social Services.
We the People thought that was a good idea. Now We the People could spend more time keeping up with The Joneses and not worry about keeping up with the Issues and Moral Obligations.
Because they had become enlightened, Education and Social Services wanted to play larger roles in We the Government.
