A friend sent me the following with a comment at the end:
The fundamental purpose of the United States is laid down in the Preamble to the Constitution:
“… 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.”
In essence, the fundamental purpose is to assure the integrity and vitality of our free society, which is founded upon the dignity and worth of the individual.
Right after reading it, I looked up at the television to see Mary Landrieu raise her right hand and swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States. While standing in front of Dick Cheney. What a cold shower.
It’s unfair that we naturalized citizens cannot run for POTUS, but at least I am now qualified to be Senator. A request: The day I enter politics, take me out in the woods and put a bullet between my eyes.
