Least we, the people, forget, words are about meaning, that is, words are about the transfer of information about sensory perceptions from one sapient entity to another.

Cooccurring with the usage of the clarifying aside "the people" in the United States Constitution, the use of the phrase "we the people" became a single thought unit, a rallying cry in direct opposition to "we the ruled and oppressed". Somuchso that if written without prescription "we the people" would read "wethepeople" as a single word.

Today the term "we the people" is used by Americans to remind our entrenched government officials that they exist only at our pleasure and discretion.
And as of yet they haven't sent out any troops.

Metheposter thinks so anyway.
