I recently blogged about an “update” of the preamble to the Constitution that was sent to me which I found provocative and interesting, but don’t agree with 100%. Seeing the number of visits it was receiving, however, I wanted to steer people toward the original which I wholeheartedly support and can get behind 100%. And it is the one that counts, after all.
So without further ado, here are those most famous and inspired words from the pen of Mr. Madison, known as the Preamble, which begin The Constitution of the United States.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure 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.
