What is the primary duty of the federal government? When you give your answer, please state why.
Tough to pick just one, BGG. If you're referring specifically to the Federal level, Congress alone has 18 enumerated powers. Then there is State government and whatever dependent local governments are organized under the State powers.
D'oh! It says "federal" right there, doesn't it?
Going for my glasses.
I said federal government. It is not tough to pick just one.
To provide a framework to provide justice/restitution against aggressive acts, commited upon peaceful people......And that's about it.
You are in the ballpark with that answer Dude.
To defend the liberty of the people.
I am surprised neither one of you got it the first go around. You have no excuse gold. You legal heathen.
NOW I can see.
All right, if there's one overriding theme to the founding document it is security.
Not just security against outsiders, but also security in one's person, home, possessions, opinion and expression.
That is a very broad statement Kevin. How about shaving some ambiguity off the sides.
Separate names with a comma.
