The Founding fathers of our nation were very clear in expressing the intent of and need for a Federal Constitution. The Preamble to the Constitution states: 

“We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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.”  

Without doubt the framers of our Constitution recognized the need for and preservation of ‘DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY’. The Constitution is intended to “insure domestic tranquility.”  Our framers knew how important Domestic Tranquility was and is for the success, stability and prosperity of our nation. Our framers also knew that the foundation of this nation and for ‘domestic tranquility’ was and is: the FAMILY. The framers knew full-well that ‘Domestic Tranquility’ begins with FAMILY PRESERVATION.

However, in America today ‘Domestic Tranquility’ is neither evidenced in any real nor meaningful way when it comes to Families.  Families are being assaulted. America has morphed in a place where its citizens ‘fight with themselves’, in fact are given incentives to fight with themselves, and where the respective states can and do unjustifiably interfere with the family and familial relationships beginning with the most important relationship that being the Parent-Child relationship. The Parent-Child relationship is the foundation of the family and the foundation of Domestic Tranquility. 

The Parent-Child relationship is a ‘fundamental right’. It is our most precious fundamental right. Protecting this fundamental right is the key to insuring Domestic Tranquility.  Yet, our most precious fundamental right is abridged, indeed wholly ignored, by the states of this union who do so with impunity. 

Domestic Tranquility is not present in America nor can it be present in America as long as our most precious fundamental right, the Parent-Child relationship is not recognized and afforded all the protection the framers of our Constitution envisioned.  

The Family Preservation and Reconciliation Act’ (FPRA) recognizes and protects the most precious fundamental right, the Parent-Child relationship.  Passage of FPRA will curtail and substantially diminish the unjustified violation and abridging of fundamental rights by the state governments at all levels and by federal courts.  FPRA is the first step in “insuring domestic tranquility” in America.
