The principles embedded in the Preamble to the Constitution

The U.S. does what they can to form a more perfect union. The country has been through a lot and has over come a lot. The U.S. has struggled with things that are still here today like discrimination of all kinds. For many years there has been poverty and I think there will always be poverty. Nothing can or will ever be perfect. There will always be someone or something wrong in the world and that may affect others. We can try to fixit or try to improve it but it will never be perfect.

The Constitution set a goal to establish justice. From the struggles of Native Americans at the country’s birth to the African American civil rights movement of the 1960s, from the vote for women to the internment of the Japanese during World War II, To establish justice shows how the Supreme Court has paved the way for both justice and discrimination, and how its importance of the government has impacted all of our lives.

It states that the U.S. will promote the general welfare. I think this means that everyone will work together to help one another. Many times I see this happening around me and I do what I can to help out as well. I see a lot of people that don’t care about it and they don’t help. Many people don’t help because they don’t think the money goes straight to the cause that it’s supposed to.

I think that there are many ways you can interpret what it means to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. The way that I think it means is we are giving the right and power to express in a manner of our own choosing. The same thing goes for the future generations and descendents.
