the purpose of government is to preotect its citizens....cmon ppl im 13 nad i know that..
The preamble of the Constitution actually states their thinking on the purpose of government. John Adams also wrote on the purpose of government and he basically stated that it was to make sure the people are happy and that a happy society is the purpose of government. He goes on to say that the government is to make sure people are taken care of in matters of security, health, and liberty. The founding fathers also thought the role of the citizen was important so the government and constitution would work. Washington writes that an educated citizen ensures that a democracy would work correctly because they would understand HOW it should work. Thus, protecting the concept of a free society. When you think about these concepts it is easy to see they had a handle on how the government and the citizenship should work together. In, my opinion, the lack of history and government education is proving Washington correct. When people don't understand how government works they come up with theories that are not logical and in the process end up loosing freedoms.
There is nothing in the constitution about a right to health care. For over 60 years the discussion about health care has been going on. We have to ask ourselves what the purpose of government is and what we want from it. The founding fathers stated that the job of government is for the common good of the citizens. Not for people to get rich from the poor, not to wage war, but to see to the protection of the people.
The founding fathers intended to protect us from all the previous oppressive governments and societies. Contrary to popular belief they didn't give us a democracy (rule of many over a few), nor did they give is an oligarchy (rule of a few over many) they gave us a Republic (the Rule of law over all) Our supreme law being the Constitution which restrains the two and has certain processes for amending it which aren't easy because of the checks and balances that are instilled in the government. History shows the intent and purpose of our founding fathers. Contemporary logic is wrong whenever it contradicts the clear explanations of those men who wrote the Constitution... what people call a strict interpretation. As long as we keep a strict interpretation we keep our Republic, when we allow a loose interpretation we risk loosing the Republic and veering into oppressive government and/or society. ~DCSS The founding fathers intented the checks and balances system to be a three tiered cross check that gauranteed constant intra and inter oversight.
Yes, Locke explained the purpose of government, and natural rights in his civil contract, which he is most famous for. In his civil contract, he explains all men have natural rights (life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness) and also he sets an example for many modern-day documents by explaining how governments should be democracies. Hope this helps!
According to John Adams the role of government is to help the common good of the people. He states, " the happiness of the people is the purpose of government and should serve the largest number and the true idea of a republic is an empire of laws and not men." Washington stated that the " virtue or morality is necessary Spring of popular government and human rights can only be assured among virtuous people." Franklin added to this idea by saying that " only virtuous people are capable of freedom."
The purpose of the Constitution was to basically create a central government in which it would receive powers such as collecting taxes and such. On top of that, this "central government" would provide procedures for elections and supreme court nominations, and to protect the rights of the people from the government; much like today. Before the Constitution was ratified in 1787, the United States was operating under the Articles of Confederation. This was somewhat of a first attempt at establishing a government. However, it didn't work out to become all that successful, and so, the Constitution was created.
