All you have to do is read the preamble. "We, the people of the United States find 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 Founding Fathers were setting down a list of rules to guide the United States. After which the Bill of Rights gave more rights to the people.


The Constitution was created because the previous government structure under the Articles of Confederation was not working. Enough politicians agreed that a new constitution had to be created to better serve the people and deal with problems concerning the country.
