Saying "the people" established the United States, or the States that formed that union, is like saying "the customers" at Baskin Robbins ordered strawberry. Which customers? All customers? Most of the customers? A particularly important subgroup of customers? It's deliberate ambiguity to avoid dealing with criticism of the legitimacy of what was done in the name of the people. Just a thought I figured I'd throw out there, as a prelude for an eventual essayspace side-by-side commentary on the Constitution. There is a lot that could be said.
