That's Garbage

Wherever the "Pledge" originated, "NATIONS" are PEOPLE and I would sooner pledge my loyalty to people than any "thing" or "principle". The founders were "We The People". They founded the United States for "ourselves and our posterity", people again. Every law they enacted was devised to protect the Rights of Individuals. The pledge in the original post says nothing about people. Basically, it is dehumanizing idolatry of objects and principles, which should be completely rejected. The "flag" is a symbol of the NATION, "Americans", WE THE PEOPLE. The country, the state, the republic, the Constitution (LAW), are all NOTHING, unless they protect, defend, and hold sovereign and sacred, THE PEOPLE.
