The "ONE NATION" "MYTH"; Which was actually created by a Christian SOCIALIST around the 1880's and then later placed into the "Pledge of Allegiance" a "Nationalistic" Pledge around 1930's:
From Wikipedia: "...The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by Francis Bellamy (1855–1931), who was a Baptist minister, a Christian SOCIALIST, and the cousin of socialist utopian novelist Edward Bellamy (1850–1898). The original "Pledge of Allegiance" was published in the September 8 issue of the popular children's magazine The Youth's Companion as part of the National Public-School Celebration of Columbus Day, a celebration of the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the Americas. The event was conceived and promoted by James B. Upham, a marketer for the magazine, as a campaign to instill the idea of American "NATIONALISM" by selling flags to public schools and magazines to students...."
Obviously, Francis Bellamy didn't want what the Founders intended, which was simply a "LIMITED COMPACT" of Independent States.
And though said he wanted to instil the Love of the Constitution, was disingenuous or ignorant to the ORIGINAL INTENT the Founders worked years for and debated rigorously in the Ratifying Conventions to make sure Francis Bellamy's "definition" of "one nation" would "NEVER OCCUR".
