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.
Note those first three words in the Preamble to the Constitution, quoted above. “We the People” … we, the people of the United States of America … the people. That’s us. That’s all of us. It’s you, it’s me … it’s Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton; it’s John McCain, and unfortunately, it’s also George W. Bush, who has done his best over the past 7+ years to take America out of the hands of the People, and concentrate it in the hands of the few.
This election cycle is about so much more than race, than the war in Iraq, than the economy. It’s about the people of the United States, people who are desperate for change; people who need change.
And the only way to help ensure change is to participate; to get active … to speak your mind … and to vote.
