We, The People, Call These The License Plates of Freedom

License Plates with U.S. Constitution Preamble

License Plates with U.S. Constitution Preamble

The Schoolhouse Rock generation knows it by heart, but for the Glenn Beck generation needing a phonetic, mnemonic aid for our U.S. Constitution, they're in luck.

Gee-whiz site AutoMotto stumbled again over this collection of license plates that sort of spells out the preamble to the U.S. Constitution (the "opening credits"). Created in 1987 with vanity plates from all 50 states and Washington, D.C., the prison-labor Preamble is now a part of the vast Smithsonian collection.

For those of you who don't carry a copy of the Constitution on your iPhone--you know, in case you're subject to search for bringing guns to a healthcare debate--here’s the full Preamble:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
