It is no secret—the Constitutional Convention, which began meeting in Philadelphia on May 25, 1787, produced the Constitution of September 17, 1787 in secret, so it would appear to be a replacement for the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777.

The true meaning of the Preamble is the secret of the Constitutional Convention. Everyone reads himself or herself into that Preamble, however, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention are the “We the People of the United States.”

The delegates to the Constitutional Convention were charged by a resolution of the United States in Congress assembled with the duty of revising the Articles of Confederation and “this Constitution” did so.

When nine States ratified “this Constitution,” an Article IX Committee of the States, now named the Senate, would have the power to appoint “other committees and civil officers as may be necessary” to manage “the general affairs of the united states under their direction.”

The ratification of “this Constitution” by New Hampshire established “this Constitution” as the Constitution of the United States consisting of all the territory and other property belonging to the Confederacy, the United States of America......

  1. I have recently wondered just what was meant by "We The People" in the American Constitution preamble. Realizing that it was formulated and written by delegates that represented the "upper echelons" of post colonial society.

    The cream of the crop that rise to the top.

    This curiosity was partly what led me to try and study and better understand "Our Constitution". Currently using the book entitled "The 5000 Year Leap"...its 28 principles of foundation for the American Constitution. The claim in this book being that the "Founding Fathers" had the 28 Principles Of Good Government in their minds when they did their work.

    Its an interesting read; sometimes even fascinating, but I just don't know. I must keep an open mind about this matter. Wouldn't want to become a "True Believer" of something that isn't really True. We'll see.
