  • Live in America, work in america, and are a us citizen, pledge allegiance to the flag, or leave

    Posted by: Kylar
  • Remove public school. It is based off american tax payers, and if your not going to recite the pledge to thank those payers, get out.

  • this is America you came her to live a free life so live the dream and be an American Leave a comment (optional)

  • you are in america using the tax payers dollars to learn pay your respect or leave it shows what this country stands for

  • 1st amendment.

  • 1st amendment

  • People do not have to be patriotic to live in America there is no need to recite even war Veterans have said this maybe not in the same words but they have said such things

  • Although it's disrespectful to the troops who give their lives for you, it is your constitutional right with the 1st amendment. So you do what you want, but I am standing for America and the troops.

  • I dont personally do it because i am not proud to be american

  • People may live in America and thats their choice just like it should be their choice to say the pledge. Its not against the law if someone doesn't say the pledge.

  • 1st amendment but I respect the troops

  • !st amendment mother*ckers

  • Just like women shouldn't be forced to marry a man that was picked for them. If they want to recite it because they pledge allegiance to the United States then they will. This is the Land of the Free. Not the home of the forced.

  • Not necessary in Sweden, not necessary in the states. It should be optional, no doubt. I do believe America has the first amendment over the shoulder anyways so there's no forcing people to make a pledge.

Although I believe it is disrespectful to not stand and pledge because of the troops who give their lives to protect you, they also protect your 1st amendment right to no stand and pledge. So you do what you wish, but I'm standing for America and the troops.

Because of the constitution, those that say yes has no leg to stand on.

Fun fact: Before it became the "Hitler salute" kids used that pose during the pledge.

The Government was made to protect the constitution and the beliefs of the people

@kylar you say that like it's easy to leave.
Bolas says2015-04-10T12:22:23.6408060-05:00
I do not stand, but that doesn't mean I that I don't repsect the troops who give us this right. I am not proud of the corrupted government, or in my eyes the becoming corrupt government, so that is why I do not stand.

To those talking about "troops" are you sure you are not conflating the pledge with the anthem?
dbushwacker says2015-04-10T13:14:39.7071499-05:00
Lol, yeah, I think I just did. :P

Force to recite, no. Should they recite, H**L yes.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-10T14:04:26.6840619-05:00
@USMC You came here for a "Free life", so we're gonna force you to acknowledge the freedom by making you recite a pledge of absolute loyalty everyday, until it's drilled into your skull. FREEDOM!
TBR says2015-04-10T14:06:31.7186688-05:00
@Mathgeekjoe - Tell them to take the awkward modification out ;)

This is brainwashing us to hate Hitler
retrogamer176 says2015-04-10T14:31:59.8223152-05:00
@heil We're not being brainwashed to hate hitler. He killed millions, tried to exterminate an entire race.
Bolas says2015-04-10T14:32:38.6343688-05:00
He's back again everyone!!
heil33 says2015-04-10T14:54:28.3539814-05:00
Except no official documents confirm Hitler ordered that
TBR says2015-04-10T14:59:05.9506429-05:00
Heil... 33 no less. So, where in the pledge does it hurt Hitlers feelings?
heil33 says2015-04-10T15:00:05.6974939-05:00
I'm not pledging to this jewish nation

Only if you want to instill them to be good citizens in service of the nation that provides for them at an early age. Or you can just not say the pledge every morning and let the grow up into pretentious ungrateful brats.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-04-10T22:22:28.5973546-05:00
Over privileged and self serving too, I should add.

Is that why I am a pretentious ungrateful brat.
retrogamer176 says2015-04-11T18:56:28.0476696-05:00
@freedombeforeequality so you're over privileged if you don't agree with what the government is doing and pledge loyalty to it? Get out of here man.
