27 March 2016. No “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance!

NETHERLANDS USA WWII MARGRATEN MEMORIAL

______________________________

“Under God” wasn’t in the first version. We should go back to the original wording. This land is for everyone. It began as a secular republic; it should stay such. “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. ALL does include secularists… as I stated the USA was NEVER a theocracy… it was always a secular republic. As a believer in a “minority” religion, I want it to stay that way. Besides, “Under God” came in as a result of the McCarthyite scummers… we should remove it as a sign that we reject McCarthyism and all other associated rightwing lunacy. Never forget, William F Buckley DEFENDED McCarthy… that tells you much about his slobbering disciples such as Rod Dreher, doesn’t it?
