WHEREAS, the United States Constitution forms a more perfect union, establishes justice, insures domestic tranquility, provides for the common defense, promotes the general welfare, and secures the blessings of liberty for United States citizens and their posterity, and

WHEREAS, the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin which was ratified in 1848 contains a Declaration of Rights which states in Article I: “All people are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent rights; among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; to secure these rights, governments are instituted, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;” and
WHEREAS, throughout the history of and subsequent amendments to the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of Wisconsin, the foundation of liberties, freedoms and inalienable rights has endured; and
