We the People of the United States are in need of a reformed federal government, reestablished on the enduring principles of liberty, justice, and equal opportunity for all – a government "of the people, by the people, and for the people." The United States Constitution was drafted in order to preserve representative democracy, the balance of power between the branches of the federal government, and the individual rights of citizens.
Whereas our government has overstepped its constitutional bounds and trampled on civil liberties, it is incumbent on the people to restore the sanctity of the Constitution in the federal government. The Declaration of Independence stipulates "whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."
People comprise a nation; therefore, all true power must necessarily be derived from and vested in the people. We the People have the inalienable right to reform our government when it fails to represent us.
