The significance of the term "People", as found
in the Preamble, has not changed, for purposes
of the supreme Law in America, because it cannot
change. See Eisner v. Macomber: "Congress ...
cannot by legislation alter the constitution,
from which alone it derives its power to legislate,
and within whose limitations alone that power can
be lawfully exercised." Elsewhere in our
Application for Leave to File Enlarged Brief,
in USA v. Gilbertson, "The cardinal rule of
written instruments is that they should receive
an unvarying interpretation." The Tenth Amendment
reserves our Right of Election (read "Freedom
of Choice") to choose federal citizenship,
state citizenship, both, or neither. Moreover,
the Right of Expatriation has been expressly
recognized by Act of Congress, never repealed.
