The Real Purpose Of Government

And more opportunities equal great outcomes for our communities. America’s diversity is its greatest strength and the deepest source for tension. The battles that are birthed from that conflict are reflected in the process of government decision-making for budgets, policies, and programs. The challenge of government and the citizenry is achieving a meaningful system of grassroots governance.

Before 1763 there was not a right asserted in the Declaration of Independence which had not been debated and discussed by the New England Clergy. (Alice M. Baldwin, The New England Clergy and the American Revolution). It is strange to modern ears to hear that the rights listed in the Declaration of Independence were but the listing of sermon topics that had been preached from the pulpit in the two decades leading up to the American Revolution. Our own leaders rejoiced that the pulpits thundered in the awakening and revival of American principles and feelings that led to American Independence . During the Colonial Period, the Bible’s impact on the shaping of America’s two main pillar documents, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, was decisive. It is noteworthy, if not extraordinary, that the British blamed the Black Regiment for America’s Independence and government.

Government creates individuals by first deciding what people need and then providing it for them by a) the redistribution of resources and b) transforming the character of inferior citizens through “uplift”. Written documents of governance, however, had been the norm for every colony founded by Bible-minded Christians. After all, God had given Moses a fixed written law to govern the nation of Israel. This Mosaic Code was a higher law that men could live by – and appeal to – against the whims of ordinary men.

First, the Preamble specifies that what is being enacted is “this Constitution”—a term that unmistakably refers to the written document itself. America has no “unwritten constitution.” Ours is a system of written constitutionalism—of adherence to a single, binding, authoritative, written legal text as supreme law. Nine federal judges explain how citizens’ consent to following the law protects our rights in everyday situations. The key to the rule of law, judges say, is a commitment to applying laws fairly to everyone.

Only with the birth of democracy in ancient Greece around 500 B.C. Does the idea of the government of, by and for the people arise. Since then, that idea has spread worldwide, but even the most developed democracies still disproportionately serve the purposes and interests of privileged groups. The first part, the Preamble, describes the purpose of the document and the Federal Government. The second part, the seven Articles, establishes how the Government is structured and how the Constitution can be changed. The third part, the Amendments, lists changes to the Constitution; the first 10 are called the Bill of Rights.
