Goals and Purposes of the Government

The United States Constitution has a Preamble that breaks down the goals and purposes of the government. In this flyer, we will give current examples for each goal.

Establish Justice

In America we send people who commit crimes to prisons to keep the streets safe. Also, we have fair trials in court to find out if someone is guilty or not.

The Preamble was written in 1787 to establish the goals of our government. Times are very different now, but the government still abides by the goals of the Preamble.
