The Purpose of the United States' Government

The Constitution of the United States
Preamble
Note*

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.


As we head onto into this extended election season, please do yourselves and everyone else a favor and keep in mind what the folks we're gonna be voting for are supposed to be working for.

All of our questions about the candidates lose relevancy when they veer away from elements of the above.

Thanks for the impetus here, Lynn. {-;

Happy Friday!

* I recommend that hyper-linked NOTE as it gives some good back ground on what was goin' through the heads of the framers whilst working upon the Constitution. Great stuff, eh!
