The preamble to the Constitution of The United States of America explains why our founding fathers decided to make our government a republic. It replaced the Articles of Confederation. The rights under this document were granted to the citizens of this country. They wanted a way to govern this country better. Justice was established. The framers also revised to defend the states as a nation altogether.
It stated that the well being of the citizens would be ensured and protected. The constitution protected the country's rights for liberty, and freedom from unjust laws and a tyrannical government. The last phrase of the preamble states that the people made this document and that the people give the country its power.
It is from the constitution.-this is the preamble of the united states constitution.written in 1787, ratified in 1788, and in operation since 1789, the united states constitution is the worlds longest surviving written charter of government. its first three words we the people affirm that the government of the united states exists to serve its citizens. the supremacy of the people through their elected representatives is recognized in article i, which creates a congress consisting of a senate and a house of representatives. the positioning of congress at the beginning of the constitution reaffirms its status as the first branch of the federal government.the constitution assigned to congress responsibility for organizing the executive and judicial branches, raising revenue, declaring war, and making all laws necessary for executing these powers. the president is permitted to veto specific legislative acts, but congress has the authority to override presidential vetoes by two-thirds majorities of both houses. the constitution also provides that the senate advise and consent on key executive and judicial appointments and on the ratification of treaties.for over two centuries the constitution has remained in force because its framers successfully separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interests of majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the central and state governments. more a concise statement of national principles than a detailed plan of governmental operation, the constitution has evolved to meet the changing needs of a modern society profoundly different from the eighteenth-century world in which its creators lived.this annotated version of the constitution provides the original text with commentary about the meaning of the original text and how it has changed since 1789.
