Preamble to the Bill of Rights

I am sure that you, the reader of this blog, have at one time or another read the Bill of Rights amending the Constitution.  If you have not, then please obtain, read and memorize it.  But, if you have read the Bill of Rights, have you read the Preamble to the Bill of Rights? Yes, the Bill of Rights has a Preamble but try to find it today.  It is seems the Preamble is almost never mentioned by Progressives in our great centers of ignorance called Colleges and Universities. Here it is:

“Effective December 15, 1791
Articles in addition to, and Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, proposed by Congress, and ratified by the Legislatures of the several States, pursuant to the fifth Article of the original Constitution.

PREAMBLE
The conventions of a number of the States having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best insure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

Why is the Preamble of the Bill of Rights so little known among Americans upon which their very freedoms reside?  Because it is inherently limiting to the governmental powers that be!  The Preamble tells the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT that it is extremely limited by the Constitution in its originality and that it is to keep its hands off the rights of the people herein listed.  The Bill of Rights are not the only “rights” Americans have but these are the ones which historically Tyrants love to violate.

Let us resurrect the Preamble to the Bill of Rights!
