That was all present in this year's State of the Union address by...
"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." As outlined in the preamble of the Constitution,...
With all the drama continuing to erupt around the upcoming Presidential election this coming November, it is important to remember that many Senators and all the members of the House of Representatives are also up for re-election.
