My allegiance is to the once healthy nation that defended our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. I wasn't there at the very beginning, but I hope that at least in it's infancy, our nation was honest and filled a proper role in people's lives, instead of working against people's lives. Maybe I'm wrong and it was never that way, but that concept is the nation that I pledge my allegiance towards. I find that now I am usually making a wish that this nation will overcome the cancer that has taken it over and that it makes a healthy recovery, while the rest of the people invoke an incantation of blind obedience to that same cancer.
