The Central Problem of American History

Just who is included in the opening three words of the Constitution? Who gets to be "The People" in "We the people ...?"

At the time those words were written, only white male property owners were "The People." If that was still the case, perhaps three quarters of the population would be disenfranchised.

I wish people would see that. That would mean that women would not be there either!!
