[music maestro...] in 1787, you know our founding Fathers did agree...

"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."
Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America the Twelfth. In Witness whereof We have hereunto subscribed our Names
Two hundred thirty three years have passed.
Unfortunately at the rate things are going, there will be much less future to cling to...
Re-reading the whole thing, thinking about what it really means, doesn't actually hurt.
The linked site actually has a number of notes, such as one for the preamble which help describe a number of contextual situations which explain specific word choices which today may seem "strange", or even not "politically correct".

Good reading all... at least for those that are truly interested in reading and learning.
