Many American republicans say, the constitution of "The United States of America", justifys (or) calls for, America's government to (not) be responsible for helping poor Americans or un-lucky Americans.
The following is the preamble to America's constitution. Preamble means, an introduction, that states a constitutions reason and purpose.
"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 prosperity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the united states of america."
The following, is the way I (personally) understand and see, the meaning to each of the preambles sentences.
we the people of the united states ---- (americas highest, in office government officials wrote this.) These first words of our constitution make me think this, (our government is us.)
To (me) the sentence's that come after the above, are what Americas highest government officials (the writers of the US constitution), wanted to make sure all americans had.
And (I) don't think they just wanted government officials to do these things, but (all) americans as well.
to form a more perfect union --- to me this means, they wanted to come together perfectly, or they wanted to live in a perfect country.
establish justice --- to me this means, they wanted to make righteousness, be in control of (all) of america.
insure domestic tranquillity --- to me this means, they wanted to insure all american homes were calm and happy.
(definition) welfare- the state of being or doing well, condition of health, happiness and confort, well being prosperity.
promote the general welfare --- to me this means (the writers of the constitution) wanted to promote all americans being and doing well, they wanted to promote all americans good health, they wanted to promote all americans happiness and confort, and they wanted to promote all americans prosperity.
DOES THE US CONSTITUTIONS PREAMBLE,
MAKE (YOU) FEEL, THAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS, DID (NOT) WANT THE US GOVERNMENT, TO HELP POOR AMERICANS OR UN-LUCKY AMERICANS ?
