…democracy for which it stands?
Is the United States a republic or a democracy? Do you know the difference? If we are one form of government, then why do we claim to be spreading another around the globe through war?
Furthermore, why would you pledge allegiance to a piece of fabric anyway? What exactly does the flag stand for? The original flag had 13 stripes and 13 stars to represent the 13 original colonies, or 13 corporate charters of the British Crown…do I owe allegiance to the Crown or to the law (not to initiate force against another) and to the people?
I’m gonna rewrite the Pledge of Allegiance…it goes like this…
I pledge allegiance to the law of the land, written in the Constitution and eternal in the heart of humanity, and to the people of the united states of America and to the principles for which we stand; One Nation, of the One and True Living Creator, indivisible, with liberty, tranquility, and prosperity for all.
