United States Constitution | Preamble | Summary

Summary

The preamble of the U.S. Constitution introduces the basic principles the authors hoped the document would uphold. Those principles include the intent to create "a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty."

Analysis

The following detailed articles of the Constitution strive to outline laws that will establish the ideas in this preamble. The authors establish and set the tone for their hopes in these introductory words. The preamble is actually not open to any interpretation in court and can't be argued in a case the way the rest of the Constitution can.
