The preamble and 7 Articles of the Constitution play a very important role in both the structure of the US Constitution and the US government. The preamble introduces the Constitution and states the purpose of the government. It declares that the power of the government comes from the people. According to the preamble the purposes of the government are to "form a more perfect union", "to establish justice", and "to ensure domestic tranquility." The Articles follow the Constitution and outline basic government principles. There are seven articles and they are number in roman numerals I through VII.
