Why Provide for the Common Defense?

This item is sold in packs of 20.

The American Founders believed that the federal government should have only a few, limited powers, and that it should be concerned only with issues that affect the well-being of the entire nation. That is why the United States Constitution gives the federal government a primary responsibility of providing for the common defense.

This volume in the Understanding America series discusses the Founders’ conviction that, in order to preserve peace, America must be prepared for war. They recognized that public spending on defense was necessary in order to maintain the strength required to defend liberty.
