Preamble
We the People of the United States
We the citizens, non-citizens and habitants of the United States Under the contemporary version of the preamble, citizens and non- citizens habitants are covered by the preamble not, just the wealthy. Citizens as well as non-citizens habitants have the same rights and opportunities in the United States and are protected by this important document. Natural born citizens as well as resident, or non-resident habitants, of the United States shall be completely covered or protected by this document. I chose to include citizens, noncitizens and habitants instead of the “people” because it goes in to depth on which people. I believe citizens. Non-citizens and habitants of the United States shall be included in this document. In Order to form a more perfect union

To improve on this foundation and create a more cooperative environment and nation To develop and create a United States that is more cooperative than it already is, for the citizens, non-citizens and habitants of this country. Not only to form, a more perfect environment but, to improve on all aspects and create a stronger nation in terms of economic security of this country and environment as well as create a stronger bond among everyone and the states. The United States is no longer considered a Union, it is considered a nation. I included the words foundation and a more cooperative environment because I wanted to include how the United States would be more “perfect”. Establish Justice

Establish Justice and equality
Create justice in all aspects when it comes to laws and justice, and in the court systems. Create equality regardless of race, gender, sex, and national origin among the citizens, non-citizens, residents and habitants of the United States. Unlike, in the past were race would determine a case resolution. I choose justice and equality because now, in days everybody deserves to be treated equally. Insure domestic Tranquility

Insure care, protection and a peaceful environment
Provide care when it comes to public safety and provide protection in times of financial hardship. Insure a peaceful environment without attacks as well as catastrophes. If the United States faces any of these hardships, the country would do it’s best to insure care, protection and a peaceful environment. I choose the words care, protection and a peaceful environment because I wanted to be specific rather than just saying “domestic tranquility”. Provide for the common defense

Provide health, happiness, prosperity or well-being. 
Provide or try it’s finest to have healthy citizens, non-citizens, residents and habitants as well as prosperity in terms of economic success for the present generations and in future generations. Today, Health, prosperity, wellbeing are very important aspects that society tries to be successful in. I believed this words would mean a lot to the citizens, non-citizens and habitants of the United Sates and it would create a more understandable and deeper meaning rather than “common defense”. Promote the General Welfare

Promote care for the citizens, non-citizens, residents and habitants. Provide care and concern for non-citizens, residents and habitants as well as defend the nation and work together for the good of others. Care for citizens, noncitizens and habitants is something everybody wishes they had, I chose care because I wanted to be specific in terms of what was meant by “general welfare”. And Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity Secure fairness, secureness and equality for the present and future generations Establish and provide fairness in every aspect of society and provide security in terms of authority and law enforcement among the citizens and non-citizen habitants of the United States. I choose not to use the word “blessings” because today not everyone is religious unlike in the past centuries. I also decided to include present generations and future generation instead of “posterity” because I wanted to emphasize what exactly was meant by “posterity”. Do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States Do ordain, approve and acknowledge the Constitution of the United States I chose the words approve and acknowledge because today, approve and acknowledge are words that are commonly used when agreeing to a contract. The constitution today, can be considered like a contract and I thought approve and acknowledge, would be words that would create a better understanding rather than using the word establish.

Bill of Rights
1st Amendment
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. Or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The government shall not impose a religion or any type of belief to the citizens, noncitizens and residents of the United States. Everyone shall have the right to practice any type of belief. Everyone shall also be allowed to fully express their opinions and views and publish in the form of writing, audio, video, and the media. However, the freedom of speech shall be done without offending and without any derogative language. They shall also have the right to peacefully assemble and organize the request of any grievances. This amendment shall cover the freedom of speech, press, assemble and the right to petition the government. Under this version of the Bill of Rights, citizens and non-citizens, residents of the United States shall have the freedom of speech, religion, press, and petition the government. I believe the freedom of speech, religion, and petition the government are basic human rights and if they are violated they dehumanize the population. Everyone shall have the right to believe in any type of belief; after all that is what makes a person. Everyone shall also be able to say their opinions; without offending anybody. If people are offended through the freedom of speech they become violated this is why I believe everyone shall have the freedom of speech without offending anybody else. They shall also have the freedom of the press to fully express their opinion and views of any issue. People shall also be able to have the right to assemble and petition the government to share their unconformities and to advocate for solutions that would comfort the people. 2nd Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. Citizens and residents of the United States shall have the right to own or have weapons for their own safety. However, there is a limitation to one gun per a person that is 25 and older. In the 2nd Amendment people should have the right to be protected individually, without not just depending on the law enforcement. People shall be able to protect themselves individually for any emergency or in a dangerous situation. However, there shall be a limit of one gun per a person to avoid any major accidents. There is also an age limit of 25 and older to also avoid any accidents. I decided to include a limit on the number of guns and an age limit to avoid many crimes. 3rd Amendment

No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law. The government shall not impose or demand that persons or troops be housed in anytime during war. People shall not be forced by the government law to house any troops in their homes. In the third amendment, the government cannot enforce people to house any troops in their homes. The housing of troops would take away individuals privacy and comfort. I decided not to include that the government can prescribe this manner with the owner’s consent; because it limits individual’s privacy, conformity, and security. No one shall be forced to house troops in their own homes. 4th Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized. Citizens and non-citizens or residents of the United States shall be protected from unreasonable searches from the law enforcement which include the individual’s belongings. The law enforcement shall not be able to conduct any searches without a warrant that shall be issued by a judge with the reason of a probable cause. In the fourth amendment, people are protected from unreasonable searches; and searches shall only be conducted with a search warrant. The law enforcement shall not be able to search any belonging without a warrant. I also chose to include the word belongings instead of houses, papers because it includes everything the individuals owns instead of just a limitation of just houses, papers. 8th Amendment

Excessive bail shall be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. This amendment prohibits the government from charging excessive bail outs, fines, or cruel and unusual punishments. However, death row shall not be considered a cruel or unusual punishment but a sort of punishment. The government cannot charge excessive bailouts that are not in accordance with the crime or penalty committed. The fines and bailouts shall be in accordance with the penalty committed. I decided to include and emphasize that the death row shall not be considered a cruel or unusual punishment due to the fact that some people believe as the death row being a cruel punishment. People shall not be imposed to cruel punishments in jail or while being punished for their penalty that was committed. 10th Amendment

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. The United States shall not be assigned all the power or shall be prohibited by the States to create their own laws. The states shall have the right to be able to impose and create their laws in their territory. However, those laws that are imposed on certain states shall follow the constitution. The government shall not be the only the creator of laws but, also the states. The laws that are created for states shall be done to achieve the state’s best.
