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.
