The founding fathers created rights for “ourselves” which is everyone. This means that personal freedom and liberty are established by what? The U.S Constitution.

Keywords: constitutional law, justice, domestic tranquillity, defence of the community against external threats

Summary (include a descriptive sentence):

In order to establish this constitution so that we may all have equal freedoms and liberties laid down in our country’s most basic laws, it must be agreed upon unanimously with no objections–or else there will not be enough people willing to follow these guidelines because they did not consent to them voluntarily; thus leading into more conflict among citizens who disagree on how their society should run as well as those outside the country.
