We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.
Ahhh… something for everyone. “Defense” for the Right, “Welfare” for the Left.
But me? I’ll stick with the “blessings of liberty” any day.
Happy Birthday America, and a good day to everyone else in the world as well.
P.S. How many of you automatically heard the School House Rock version of the Preamble in your head as you read? Watch the video below if you don’t remember.
