WE The People Probably Wasn’t talking About You

The preamble to the the United States Constitution says the following. 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.

Here is the rub that nobody really talks about. The ” We” they were talking about was themselves and for good reason. These white men had committed treason against the most powerful country in the world. When they left their homes many expected to never return home unless it was in a pine box. It is really unfortunate in today’s toxic political environment that the word treason gets mention like its no big deal. Treason is the most terrible act a person can be charged with in regards to acts against one’s country. It is a wrong to accuse people of commiting treason with serious thought and deliberation. So ” We The People” probably wasn’t talking about you but that doesn’t mean we can’t strive to achieve a broader meaning of the word “We”.
