Petition to change the Pledge of AllegianceSubmitted by wilkesbarremayor on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 15:41
Change the words of the pledge:
"I pledge ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG... and to the republic FOR WHICH IT STANDS..."
"I pledge TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION... and to the republic WHICH IT PROTECTS..."
This change would represent our allegiance to our contract with government rather than our national colors. I am a teacher and I don't like that students are asked to pledge blindly to a flag rather than the Constitution. Help me out Daily Paul people.
