  • my school finally started saying the pledge. they never did it since i was in kindergarden

  • Yes. I do pledge allegiance to the flag whenever it is customary to do so. I do it proudly. However, people have the right to not pledge allegiance . . . it's within their right to not do so.

  • When the opportunity arises, yes. What United States citizen wouldn't?

  • I do it every morning. I also pledge my my allegiance to Texas every morning.

  • I do, but I am not so called believing in it. In the pledge we state "land of the free" whilist in school, like i am, we are clearly under a dictatorship and are not free. So I don't know why they go against their own school but i should stop saying the pledge and stop being untrue to myself.

  • Of course. I will always support liberty and justice for all.

  • We shouldn't have to pledge our aligence it should be a given

  • I refuse to suppkrt a pledge that infringes on the fact that we have seperation of church and state. I love my country but will never say the words "One nation under God" because it assumes everyone follows a monotheistic religion. What about atheists, agnostics, and polytheists? Why are they subject to that line?

  • I've stopped pledging since the beginning of this year.

  • I use to, but I'm realizing more and more what it means to "pledge" to a ideological state. Giving allegiance to anything but your most sacred judgement is foolish.

  • I'm English, why would I?

  • However if I immigrated to the US I would. You are pledging more to the people in your country to look out for each other, thats how I see it as any how.

  • I find it to be extremely unconstitutional to have the pledge in public schools. And to encourage kids to say a pledge when they don't even know what it is, is absurd.

Nothing is as American as forcing small children to mindlessly recite a pledge of their allegiance to a country that's going to screw them over.

What discomfiting said. And, yes, I pledge allegiance, but I never say "under God" because I'm an agnostic. I do it partly because of my line of work in the past, and partly because it doesn't seem worth it to fight over. When I didn't used to say the pledge people were mostly pretty tolerant, though.

A pledge doesn't mean anything if your forced to say it.

It's like saying "I love you" to somebody with a gun pointing at your head.^
