We "instituted" a new government to replace the old one that was "destructive" to Life, Liberty, and Property. We "instituted" a this new government by creating it with the United States Constitution; We "instituted" a this new government by creating a Supreme Law of the land.
The United States Constitution is the Charter that creates the Federal government (the State of the United States). The United States Constitution has also been called Fundamental Law or Organic Law.
As the Supreme Court has stated:
"The law is the definition and limitation of power." Quite simply: Law prescribes, proscribes, and circumscribes what actions the government or any of its agents are allowed to execute. The Law is a Creation of the People. The government is a Creation of Law. The first creates the second.
