    This type thinking has contributed to Americas downfall, United we stand divided we fall. All those who stress to divide shouldn't have the privilege to be called American.

    Is harmless as the pledge is you have to admit it's some cute propaganda. I mean, who isn't allegiant to the republic? Do we need to a pledge to prove that we're not one of those non pledge evil doers? Aside from a harmless tradition I've never seen the point but then again I never questioned it as a kid like they do today. I can't help but loathe the silly fools who get bent over it's usage however.

    No commentary with the story?

    Anyway, pledging allegiance to your Nation . . . which is a real & tangible thing, is less problematic than the "one Nation, under God" part.
