The Preamble of the Constitution lists the six goals the
government wants to fulfill. The six goals are; 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 ourselves and our posterity. Out
of these six I chose three that I thought were most important. I
chose establish justice, provide common defense, and secure the
blessings of liberty ourselves and our posterity.
The first one I chose was establishing justice. Our government
does a reasonable good job fulfilling this goal. They make laws
for us that everyone must obey or else they will go to prison or
jail, and even the president has to obey these laws. We have
police men to enforce the laws and make sure people aren't doing
anything bad. These rules keep my family and me safe everyday.
The second goal I picked was provide for the common defense. So
far our government has kept me safe. We have a military and they
are trying to prevent terrorist from threatening our society.
Right now we are in the middle of a war with Iraq and it's being
fought there and not here. Our government is protecting us from
having to live through a war being fought on our lands.
Last but surely not least is my third pick: secure the blessings
of liberty ourselves and our posterity. In 1809 Women had no
rights and all they did was stay home all day and work, well now
they are highly respected and have the same rights as men.
Everyone also has the right to go to school and they aren't
forced to go to church. In our society today we have freedom of
speech, freedom of religion and freedom of choice. Our government
has done a pretty great job on making sure we all had freedom of
rights and this has ensured that our children of the future will
and can make our world better through freedom of speech.
All-in-all our government has done a great job fulfilling the six
goals the Preamble set. We are protected, laws are enforced and
we can express our opinions without being executed or
