The Preamble

We the People

We the people of the United States,
“We the PEOPLE”….NOT “We the Government” or “States” also, note the BOLD print they wrote it in

in order to form a more perfect union,
in order to create a better government than that under the Articles of Confederation, and better than the English monarchy

establish justice,
put into place a sets of basic laws

insure domestic tranquility,
make sure we prevent fights among our States

provide for the common defense,
give adequately to protect our states and our people

promote the general welfare,
PROMOTE (as opposed to GIVE or PROVIDE) the overall (general) well-being of our nation, states, and people

and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity,
and seize the blessings (favors or gifts bestowed by God) of freedom for those of us now, as well as for our future generations

do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
do enact and put into place this system of fundamental principles for the United States of America.
