USA Facts

I have taken my first look at https://www.usafacts.org/ the website of information that is funded by Steve Ballmer of MS fame.

Interestingly the site starts by listing the four missions written into the USA Constitution:

Establish Justice and Ensure Domestic Tranquility
Provide for the Common Defense
Promote the General Welfare
Secure the Blessings of Liberty to Ourselves and our Posterity

The Federal and State expenses and then divided up into the above missions.

Wealth (including retirement plans) is placed under Secure the Blessing of Liberty here:

https://www.usafacts.org/missions/secure-liberty/16

Presumably it's hard to be truly free if one lives in poverty and/or is always in debt to people like Henry F. Potter (#6 on the AFI's list of the greatest cinematic villains in the first 100 years of cinema).

Seems to be a bad link. Goes to usafact.org (no "s") which is something totally different.
