"Our Government"
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 discriminated.
