The Preamble

Form A More Perfect Union

In order to form a more perfect union. This means to manage conflict and to be united in values. Today, to form a more perfect union, our country is doing things such as immigration reform. The executive branch deals with this today.

Establish Justice

Establishing justice is more than setting up federal or state courts. Establishing justice can also be teaching others how to hold up and interpret the law. Without people who know how to do this, there would be no legal system. The judicial branch deals with this.

Insure Domestic Tranquility

Insuring domestic tranquility means keeping order and peace throughout the population. Right now, there are many homeless veterans out on the streets. They protected our country and now they have nothing. This is not insuring domestic tranquility. Some people are getting very worked up about this. Something needs to be done. The legislative and executive branches take care of this.

Provide for Common Defense

The United States has had a lot of military activity these past few years. Between Iraq, Aghanistan, and the overall fight against terrorism, the US armed forces are stretched thin. Our government should be doing more to help them. After all, they are protecting our country. This past December, an executive order was passed, raising the average military personnel's pay. The legislative branch relates to this.

Promote General Welfare

The government should provide certain services for the country's citizens such as hospitals, nursing homes, and health care. It should also manage resources and keep the environment clean. Some services, such as Obamacare, have been set up to help people over the last couple of years. The legislative and executive branches deal with this.

Secure Blessings of Liberty

Protecting the individual rights and freedoms of the American citizens is a very important job of the government. They must provide for our natural rights (life, liberty, property/pursuit of happiness) and make sure that our constitutional rights aren't being violated as well. The legislative and judicial branches deal with this.
