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”.
