” Why you should vote”
This is the central reason you should go vote today:
“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.”
Six persuasive key words and concepts in the Preamble that should compell every American to vote and to do so in every regional, state, and national election, especially as we long for a more perfect democratic union and seek to actualize our shared democratic ideals and human virtues.
These key phrases are: national unity, justice for all, national peace, human flourishing and the common good ( the general welfare), the safety and protection of the American people (the common defense), human flourishing in America and freedom for all people (the blessings of liberty…)
Finally, the powerful phrase “we the people” (of the United) is a reminder of our shared identity as Americans as well as our common responsibility and sacred duty to work together to make this country a truly democratic nation (at all times) and safe space (at all times) for all people including the strangers (non-Americans) among us.
