George Mason stated: "no free government, or the blessings of liberty can be preserved to any people, but by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles." considering contemporary issues, what are these "fundamental principles" that are necessary to preserve a free government and liberty. be sure to make application of these principles to your issues. --i need to write a paper on this and im not sure what are today's fundamental principles in society. can anyone help me???
I think I would stick to "with liberty and justice for all". Those fundamental principles have done a good job so far. People don't always remember them but those principles are still the basis for what America stands for.posted by GuruBlue
I suggest you reread the first ten amendments to our Constitution -- especially those about free speech, freedom of religion, and the right to privacy. You can also review the balance of powers between the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches of government. This balance ensures that no one branch has too much power.
