What does Promote the general welfare mean?

Mentioned in the United States' Preamble to the Constitution, "Welfare" means health, happiness, prosperity or well-being The US Supreme Court has ruled that nothing in the preamble grants legislative power Welfare" should not be read in isolation, but as a part of the whole preamble - the idea of the preamble is simply that the founders of our nation think that the proposed system of governance would naturally result in the items listed in the preamble. Be very cautious to not confuse result and causation General welfare" is one of the ostensible results of our system of governance Turning the tables around and saying that "general welfare" is a legislative goal is entirely corrupt and against what the founders were saying The founders defined "welfare" as a result - a natural consequence. Those who would incorrectly have you believe that it is a legislative objective try to rewrite history by making a consequential result into an active cause Perhaps the previous would be true if the "general welfare" were only mentioned in the preamble.

Thankfully it is included in the text where "general welfare" is surely a legislative goal (as is the whole preamble--the articles and amendments merely spell out the HOW we get what the preamble guarantees) "The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States That surely points out that congress shall tax and spend on "health, happiness, prosperity or well-being.

I cant really gove you an answer,but what I can give you is a way to a solution, that is you have to find the anglde that you relate to or peaks your interest. A good paper is one that people get drawn into because it reaches them ln some way.As for me WW11 to me, I think of the holocaust and the effect it had on the survivors, their families and those who stood by and did nothing until it was too late.
