Last Thursday, I was syncing my calendar on my phone with the calendar on the wall in the kitchen. It’s something you have to do when you’re older and have various doctor appointments for two people. I had to look forward to September and I noticed on the left side of the page was written:

“We the People of the United States, in Order 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, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

I always liked the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States. Written by Gouverneur Morris, it’s a succinct description of the document’s purposes and its guiding principles. The intent of the Constitution is summed up right there in the Preamble.

The Preamble also makes for a good scorecard for those intent on violating the Constitution. The Biden Abomination has violated each of the principles delineated in the Preamble! They have absolutely no regard for the Constitution. They have no respect for its principles.

“For a more perfect Union” is the first tenet. There is nothing unified in this nation under Biden. In fact, it’s more fractured; by race, gender, age group, political beliefs, etc. The reason for this, of course, is they need us divided. They need to keep us from uniting against them.

“Establish Justice” is next on the list. When Moms and Dads trying to protect their children from abuse at the hands of school boards and school staff get scrutinized by the DoJ while crime in the city’s streets get ignored, that’s an injustice. When trespassing in the Capital building gets you arrested with none of the rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights while burning entire city blocks gets others arrested and immediately released, that’s injustice. Same thing for the film crew of a comedian, one who’s not even a little funny, commits trespass in the Capital building at night and gets no charges.

“Insure domestic Tranquility” is up next. There’s nothing tranquil about this Abomination. A government cannot starve babies of formula, restrain gas and oil from vehicle owners, allow China (or any other country) from buying farmland and relinquishing all sovereignty to other entities and insure domestic tranquility.

“Provide for the common defence”, well, that’s been all but abandoned. Military leadership is more concerned with the social agenda than military operations. When we pulled out of Afghanistan, we left with most of the troops, including the 13 who died in a surprise bombing, but failed the get ALL troops out and about $80,000,000,000 in equipment and munitions. The other side of defence is at the border to the south. Without border security, a country can’t have sovereignty!

“Promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity” means nothing to Biden and his wrecking crew. Liberty isn’t anywhere within view, because all of the above violations stifle Liberty and Welfare, to Biden, is the free stuff given to illegals at your expense.

Well, now to the Hope. I was talking to a couple of teenage girls last Thursday evening. The younger one recited the Preamble off the top of her head while the older one, a rising senior, mentioned how sad she was for kids her age didn’t know anything about the history of our country. Of course, they aren’t students in the state school systems. Talking to these young teens gave me hope for the future of the United States of America!
