Preamble

The Preamble to the United States Constitution does not have legal standing.  Rather, it only sets forth the intentions of the Founding Fathers in drafting the Constitution.

The Preamble to the US Constitution states as follows: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.”
