Best Answer

Different people would give different answers to that question. There is no one right answer. My answer would be that it represents the hopes and dreams and aspirations of the American people from the time of the founding to the present day; it represents the yearning of a free people to have a free government answerable to them but strong enough to effect the proper purposes of government and it represent the absolute genius of the men who framed it, the first such government in over two thousand years. Of course, the question, "What does it represent?" is very different from the question, "What is it?"
