I suggest that you all watch this video, if you are yet to do so.
The framers of the Constitution were an elite group who were trying to forge a nation not of the elite, but rather, of the common man. “Without the approval of the common man, they (the elite) feared revolution.” What is happening now?
Another section of the Preamble pushes for establishing “justice.” Still, today, we strive for justice, but the amount of injustice and unfairness that persists is destroying both collective and individual prosperity. The term itself is rather multidimensional, in that, it explores well-being, wealth, and success.
Our nation was built on a foundation that includes a strive towards prosperity. “Prosperity” to the common man and “prosperity” to the top 1% are implicitly and strikingly different. Am I wrong? Prosperity, for the rich, has been sadly translated into greed.
We, the People of The United States, make up the 99%. Those in the top 1%, for the most part, are outlandish. They are not “the People.” They do not represent the common man.
We represent the common man, and it is up to us to fight for what we deserve.
