That's not to say that both theism and government are evil. I do not think so. Theism empowers many people to be morally excellent; however, so many theisms exist and have been rejected by so many persons that it is not a sound basis for just governance. People who are attacking each other's God/disbelief cannot find mutual civic accommodation. Also, persons cannot enjoy just governance without government; when the traffic light is out, progress through the intersection drops to a crawl. For 225 years, we have been governing without moderation offered by the preamble.
As we see in the US Government of 2014, even a government designed for democratic republicanism can become dysfunctional if the citizens vote it into tyranny. In the present circumstance, an arrogant majority of representatives loyal to the Democratic Party, together with a Democratic President, created the situation wherein today, February 15, 2014, journalists are debating the appearance of US law in the hands of President Obama: Obama acting in places of the Congress. The present dysfunction would not happen if the majority of law abiding citizens were communicating with each other with the intent to accommodate each person's pursuit of life and happiness during their individual eighty years according to their growing personal opinion. By "growing" I mean whatever personal opinion is at any point in time but always seeking wisdom. The preamble would serve as the regulator for justice, if the majority of citizens would adopt the preamble for civic practices.
I want to promote Just Civic Governance by Justly Governed Citizens on Saturday, June 21, 2014, in Baton Rouge, perhaps calling it Citizens’ Ratification Day. The objective is to plan how to make celebration of the people and the preamble an annual event. I do not plan to discuss sexual preference yet would not prevent discussion. Please contribute to the planning and register for the meeting.
