One Response to A more precise preamble to the American Constitution

    Alton, I have a few questions. Does this post suggest that it describes accurately what the Founding Fathers intended? I remember hearing that opposition to the British system of mercantilism (the British king would give charters to British companies giving them exclusive rights to do certain kinds of business) was one of the reasons some colonists wanted independence from Britain.

    Or is this an operational description of how you see our government working today?

    I once saw a comment going back many years made by a US military general who basically said his job was to protect the interests of American businesses in foreign lands.
