Comment: I looked in my copy of the Constitution

(See in situ)


I looked in my copy of the Constitution

I looked in my copy of the Constitution (signed by Ron Paul) and saw the words "for the United States of America", not "of". The same was true when I looked on Constitution.org, and also Cornell University.

So does Archives.gov.

I have known this argument about "of" vs. "for" for a long time, and was surprised when I could not find a single version that said "of". I read the article, but I can't find a version of the Constitution that says "of" in the Preamble.

Sure, you can put it as a header on a web page, slap it on the cover of a book and sell it, but, I can't find evidence the Preamble was changed. Looking for info because I have used this argument before, and upon further examination I am wondering if I have to go around and make retractions now. Thanks folks.

P.S. Looking at the website for the Red Amendment, might pick it up, but I got a backlog of books already atm.
