How About the Preamble to the Constitution, useful or useless?

It is not really what we celebrate on the 4th of July, but I have to wonder if it should be. I wonder if even 50% of the adult citizens in the United States could recite the preamble. (I must confess, I have to sing it to get it right.)

C O N S T I T U T I O N   O F   T H E   U N I T E D   S T A T E S

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, promotethe 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.

One phrase haunts me a bit. “insure domestic tranquility”. It just doesn’t seem that there is much tranquility anywhere. I wonder what the founding fathers would think of the state we are in right now.

  • If you an American citizen, can you recite it from memory?

    • Yes
