Liberty and Justice prevail and Freedom endures

Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America

“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.”

I read the Preamble over and over and suggest you do the same.  The Preamble is an essential cornerstone to everything upon which our country is built.  It is a vital element in the foundation of our greatness, the goal for which true Americans strive, and succinctly establishes the purposes for a government of, by, and for we the people; a government that maintains our Union, upholds our Constitution, and defends us against the anarchy, abuse and rebellion that would surely ensue without a strong federal government and those who defend and preserve it. There are now and have always been those who consider themselves above, exempt from, or fully capable of evading the law, and who denounce and oppose those who uphold our nation’s values and strive ever onward toward a society dedicated to the concept of freedom and justice for all. Many people are well intentioned but mislead and misinformed, manipulated by those who serve money, unconstrained greed, and the corruption in which it inevitably results. As always, history will validate those who honor and uphold justice. Achieving the goals of the Preamble has been a long and uphill struggle, and progress is slow, but liberty and justice prevail and freedom endures. The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. summed it up quite nicely, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice”. SC
