What Does “A More Perfect Union” Mean?

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, 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.

What did the founders mean by “a more perfect Union”?

The United States was founded when the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776. 

The government of the United States has operated under two different documents. The first, The Articles of Confederation, was in effect from March 1, 1781, when Maryland ratified it. The second, The Constitution, replaced the Articles of Confederation when it was ratified by New Hampshire on June 21, 1788.

The founders replaced The Articles of Confederation with The Constitution “in Order to form a more perfect Union” of the individual states… the “Union” of the states is the “United” States of America.  The Constitution forms a more perfect union of the states than the Articles of Confederation did.

If our Constitution is ever found lacking, there is a constitutional process by which to amend the Constitution and form an even more perfect Union.

When “We the People” are not happy with an aspect of the Constitution, “We the People” have the power to change the Constitution.

Yes, it’s not an easy process to change the Constitution. That was intentional. But it has been done. 27 times. Most recently when Amendment 27 (Limiting Congressional Pay Increases) was ratified on 5/7/1992.

When the Supreme Court of the United States rules on an issue in a way that is upsetting to a majority of Americans, “We the People” have the power, through their elected representatives in the Congress and Presidency, to change the Constitution and override the Supreme Court. There are many people who believe that we need a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution. Mike Huckabee is one of them. In recent years, the United States Supreme Court, in cases from Roe v. Wade to Terri Schiavo, has failed to recognize that the founders of this country, the men who signed their names to the Declaration of Independence, believed that it is a self-evident truth that life is a God-given unalienable right:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

So if it is a self-evident truth that Life itself is a God-given unalienable right, how can the Supreme Court rule that a mother has a right to kill her own child, based on a right of “privacy” (a word does not even appear in the Constitution)?

The Human Life Amendment is necessary “in Order to form a more perfect Union” and ensure that our Constitution protects the unalienable Right to Life.

Now what does Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. mean by “a more perfect Union”?

He wants to replace our current Constitution with a this Constitution. He wants to replace our Constitutional Republic with a Democracy.

He pretends to be a uniter, but he is really a divider. He is trying to stir up conflict in any area he can: race conflict, gender conflict, class conflict, generational conflict, etc. His speech included the word “anger” 10 (ten) times. In my opinion, it appears that his goal is a Communist/Socialist revolution in order to form “a more Socialist Union”.

    I like reading through a post that will make men and women think.

    Also, many thanks for allowing me to comment!

    At first, you sounded so sane and really on top of the question. I thought I had found my answer. And then, you had to get goofy, irrational and disrespectful. I realized I had wandered onto a “radical right” site who is part of the evangelical movement. .I am a UMC Pastor and I really do not know how anyone who calls themselves Christian, can talk the way you do. It;so disheartening and embarrassing to those of us who are trying to make disciples throughout the world. Your haughty attitude and disparaging remarks against our president do not bring Glory and Honor to our GOD. I am so saddened by persons like you. Rev Darlene K. Ryniec

  3. Rev Ryniec,

    Thank you for your comment. I’m curious what specifically you found disheartening.

    As to the present occupant of the White House, I really do not know how anyone who calls themselves Christian, and recites the Muslim confession of faith in Arabic.

    As a UMC Pastor, that should trouble you a whole lot more than my post did.

    “And then, you had to get goofy, irrational and disrespectful. I realized I had wandered onto a “radical right” site who is part of the evangelical movement.” Hmmm… perhaps I’m mistaken but this sounds pretty “irrational and disrespectful.” Talk about a “disparaging” remark… condescending.

    Rev Ryniec, I love you. I love all of God’s creation because He Loves ALL and He expects that from us as Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. BUT… yes… here comes the “but.” But I also “HATE.” Comes as a surprise? I didn’t think so. After all, I belong to one of them “radical right” sites, so it was probably expected. Allow me to elaborate on my “Hate.”

    I hate what God hates. God hates SIN because He is holy. Sin is 100% contradictory to His Holy and Divine Nature. As imitators of God, Christians are to hate sin. God hates sin because sin separates us from Him… from His LOVE. Sin is a death sentence to your soul. But this is probably the most important reason why Christians should hate what God hates, that which separates us from God. God hates the sins of men because He LOVES us! After all, He did send His Son into the world to pay the price for our sins. That’s how passionately God loves us. That’s how vehemently He hates our sin. Christians are to Hate what God hates… period. We can never endorse sin, nor can we ever knowingly interact with someone in such a way to give credence to their sin. I know, I know… you know all of this already because you are a pastor and it is your job to know these things. But I had to be clear on my part.

    Now as for RP, like me, I’m sure he as a Christian wants nothing more than to see the President of our country have eternal salvation just as much as the rest of the people in this country and on earth. And BECAUSE he loves God’s creation, he speaks out against the sins and un-Godly actions taken by the President of the USA. Against the actions that serve to bar the President from eternal salvation. Against the actions that serve to harm God’s creation, WE THE PEOPLE, this Country. Against the President’s actions that also aid in sending God’s loved ones to hell. WOW! Now that sounds mighty hateful. Actually, it is the President who hates. He hates God and all that He stands for. His actions speak it. His actions are louder than words (although he did have many words too). He is ANTI-CHRIST. “You will know them by their fruits.” His fruits are evil… period. I pray for His soul. I pray for the souls affected by his actions in this country. I pray for you Reverend. Because of Love, I pray. I am sure RP does the same.

    We as Christians are not here to get “likes” or gain a million “followers.” No, we defend and stand up for TRUTH. “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
    For I have come to turn
    a man against his father,
    a daughter against her mother,
    a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law
    a man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.” – Jesus Christ (Is that hate?)

    Reverend Ryniec, your comment appears to come from a very humanistic standpoint. Please do not mix up Humanism with the TRUE LOVE of God. It does not mix. It’s IMPOSSIBLE.

    Regardless of whether or not bHo actually recited the Muslim confession of faith or not (he did), his actions, as I said above, prove he is not a Christian. You can claim the title all you want, but your consistent fruits will prove to all, your true colors.

    It is disheartening to me to see these so-called Christian leaders who have “likes” and many “followers,” refuse to follow TRUE LOVE in His Footsteps. They could be potentially leading astray MANY. And you will be responsible for that. That is a responsibility I do not envy. I pray for you Reverend. I hope you do the same.

    RP, please forgive me for interjecting here, but I very much dislike the unloving, un-Godly and un-Christian actions that these “Christians” make. BTW, just to be politically correct here, I forgive you for the mistakes you made here at YOUR site, as well as the future ones you will make. ;) I know, I’ve made plenty with more to come.

    TRUTH HAS NO AGENDA except that of itself.

  5. OF course this is just compassion right Rev Ryniec?

    Read the Message Obama Had Hand-Delivered to Mosque Reportedly Attended by Oklahoma Beheading Suspect

    Oct. 6, 2014 4:32pm Jason HowertonShare ThisTweet ThisPresident Barack Obama sent the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, the mosque that beheading suspect Alton Nolen reportedly attended, a special message on Saturday thanking them for their “service.”An Obama administration official apparently hand-delivered the message from the president.“Your service is a powerful example of the powerful roots of the Abrahamic faiths and how our communities can come together with shared peace with dignity and a sense of justice,” Obama said.Sr. Imam for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City Imad Enchassi addresses reporters at a news conference outside of the Oklahoma Republican Party headquarters Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2014 in Oklahoma City. (AP Photo/Nick Oxford)The faith leaders of the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City claim Muslims in the area have been receiving threats after Nolen — a Muslim convert — allegedly beheaded a female co-worker at Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma.During his Saturday sermon, the Imam also said Islam is under attack and has been called a “cancer that needs to be cut off from the American society,” according to KFOR-TV.Last week, a man who claims to have attended the mosque said the “mosque will not promote terrorism or any kind of radical acts, but when they’re among friends and congregants only, they will promote the true teachings of Islam, which include the offer to non-Muslims – the choice rather that you must convert, live under Islamic rule, or be fought against. Jihad, for the sake of Allah.”The man, who asked to remain anonymous, also alleged that he was taught at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City that suicide bombings against Israel are justified because it’s “the only weapon the Palestinians have, but do not mention this to the media because they would not understand.”Watch the full interview with the alleged mosque attendee via Fox News:Prosecutors are expected to seek the death penalty against Nolen

    My how we go from A to Z, praising Christianity and condemning Islam along the way, then ending at communism. History revisionists, please note, our Forefathers were not Christians, but Deists (look it up) as well as slaveholders (just threw that in) who limited pursuit of “life” to men (not unborn babies). How far are we allowed to stretch our preamble? Until its breaking point to imposition of our personal beliefs onto “we the people”? Where will it finally end up? Hopefully not at its logical conclusion- theocracy (We know how those nations live)?

  9. History revisionists, please note, our Forefathers were not Christians, but Deists (look it up)

    I did look it up, and found primary source documents proving your claim wrong:

    In Congress, March 16, 1776
