Most of us learned this in 8th-Grade Civics. You, apparently, need a refresher.It's fun and easy!United States ConstitutionThat bit about "... life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"? That's from the Declaration of Independence, which has no legal standing.
PreambleWe the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.
The Constitution DOES have legal standing. In fact you, as a Representative,"... shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution..."Try harder.
