An early draft of the Constitution has been found in Philadelphia. Although the handwriting is not perfectly clear, my sources tell me that this is how the Preamble read in this early draft:
We 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. Unless, of course, you don’t like what we write, in which case you can make stuff up as you go.
(Please do not quote this as being reality, because then I am going to have to spend several days and numerous posts explaining that this was meant as satire. Such is life in the internets that I even need such a disclaimer.)DONATE
