Should the pledge remain in the public school system?

Unpopularopinion

There are no benefits to having 6-18 year old's do the pledge. They don't even know what they are pledging about, they do not use it for its purpose, and they do not suddenly become more patriotic after saying it. When students are taught the pledge, they are not told what they are saying, why they are saying it, or even what the word "allegiance" means. All they are told is "you're gonna say this and you're gonna like it!" Then during the moment of silence, when we're supposed to appreciate our...

It is respectful

CAHAL101

When we say it and we face the flag we are respecting the falling soldiers. They sacrificed their life so that we could be free. Also, we are respecting the president. Eisenhower added the words "Under God". When we say we are respecting the president of the United states. That is why we should say it....

I argue that we should do away with political parties. People should vote for candidates based on their own positions on issues and their merit rather than what party they are affiliated with. First Round is for acceptance only and last round only closing arguments, but nothing that requires a response....

Are dogs better pets than cats?

HannahC2002
Littlelarge15

Dogs are better pets than cats because they are always glad to see you. My dog, Peppy, always gets so excited when I come home from school. Dogs always seem to know what you're thinking and feeling. They're very compassionate. My dog will always cheer me up when I'm sad. Cats, on the other hand, are very above it all. They often seem like they don't need you. One can't just pick up a cat and cuddle with it because most cats don't like being held. They will scratch at you, and it hurts a lot. Cat...
