MODERN FEDERALIST. No. 13

The Preamble
For the Independent Thinker.
Robert Briscoe

To the People of the Unites States of America:

The Preamble: Secure the Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity

“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 Blessing of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people is a chimerical idea. (Elliot's debates - John Adams)

PUBLIUS.
