Identity


The definition of identity is the condition of being oneself or itself, and not another. It ties into the Constitution by the fact that the Constitution is the identity out our country. Every case such as Marbury vs. Madison (which established judicial review), every amendment (freedom of religion, assembly, press, petition, speech), every single word in there form our nations identity. Identity also represents the Constitution because we would be lost and in great turmoil without it. Without an identity, people wouldn't know what to do; they would be completely lost which is what would happen without a constitution.

The picture above is of an ID (...or a fake ID, lets say it's real). It represents identity because it states one's identity (or it should) briefly. It is also the first thing someone needs to see when you are doing something questionable. The Preamble could be considered as the ID of the Constitution because it is the first thing someone sees or recalls about it.
