Preamble

Virtuous government being desirable for the advancement of the common good and to afford protection against the excesses of power we the people hereby provide for our democratic government. To protect our liberties from the excesses of state power we do also set limits to the power of that government.

We affirm that the only legitimate government, legislative, executive and judicial, is that which is established by the people, has the consent of the people and governs in the interests of the people. The right of the people to decide finally on all questions of national policy, according to the requirements of the common good, is reserved by the people.

In pursuance of the common good the purpose of government shall be to protect and promote liberty, justice, domestic harmony, national security and the general welfare of the people for the present and future generations.
