The words "under God" should not be taken out of the Pledge.

YaHey

I, Pro, concede and imply that "under God" should not be taken out of the American pledge of Allegiance. It is truly a matter of if you believe God is our Creator or not, but our founding Fathers did and this is something to be respected.

The Two-Party System In Our Government Is Outdated And Unhelpful

Spedman
Jack.Jameswood1

Whether or not you are a Republican or a Democrat you must realize that both parties are extremely caught up in their own agenda and do not care for the rights of the people anymore. Neither party can agree to anything, and each childishly blames the other for this problem. They spend too much time trying to convince the American people what is and what isn't right, but do nothing to actually help us. The two-party system was originally created to offer different opinions with how the government...

dairygirl4u2c

The investment of capital, and production, distribution, income, and prices are determined not by government (as in socialism) but through the operation of a competitive market where decisions are voluntary and private rather than regulated and mandated by government (see law of supply and demand).

But before this occurs, seats from slower growing states in population get taken away and given to larger states with rapid population growth to represent; this is called redistricting. Politicians have the power to manipulate district lines that may affect ethnic gro...
