Your Pledge

I pledge allegiance to The Constitution of the United States of America and to the Republic for which this flag stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

One day, hopefully, the pledge can be changed to reflect the fact that The Constitution is the foundational bedrock of this country, while still acknowledging the importance of the flag.

Until that time, I intend to make my pledge to The Constitution and the Republic directly, a right guaranteed by the First Amendment.

What we pledge to is no small issue in a country where less than half of adults can correctly name the three branches of government.

I posted this same diary with a poll on dailykos.

Some people would prefer to not pledge under God, some would prefer not to pledge at all, but almost all of those willing to pledge would prefer to make their pledge directly to the Constitution and to the Republic for which the flag stands.

All these options are guaranteed under the Constitution.

I believe in a God that believes in the Constitution.
