      "We" do it. We bind ourselves so that the future, which cannot pay us back, may be better.

      The Constitution starts off with an obvious note of contractual obligation and deferral of individual (and state) desires on behalf of the future and the common weal. This is not debatable, so we need to make sure that we announce it, claim it, and run for office on it.
