The Preamble to the Constitution

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.

The Preamble to the Constitution has no force in law; instead, it establishes the “Why” of the Constitution. Why is this document in existence? It reflects the desires of the Framersto improve on the government they currently had (to be “more perfect” than the Articles of Confederation), to ensure that that government would be just, and would protect its citizens from internal strife and from attack from the outside. It would be of benefit to the people, rather than to its detriment. And, perhaps as importantly, it intended to do the same for the future generations of Americans. A more extensive exploration of the Preamble is also available.

 


Article 1 establishes the first of the three branches of the government, The Executive branch, The Legislative Branch,and the Judicial Branch.

    The thing what was causing california these fires are the air,grass,trees and their has not been rain in california for 4 years.

    The thing that is causing fire to spread is the wind or air is shifting.

    A fire break is a tool that spreads chemicals to put out fires.

    The drout has lasted 4 years.
