Letter: Secure blessings of liberty


Ron Sturgeon’s letter “Nation stumbling backward” shows good taste (Our Readers’ Views, July 26). It’s fine writing by a member of the local public. Like George Will speaking plainly.

Mr. Sturgeon makes reference to the preamble of the Constitution. For those who haven’t read it lately, it states: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

Indeed, were our courts to only think highly of securing for all of us the Blessings of Liberty.
