You pledge allegiance, To that flag, Of that one country that everyone seems to hate. And to the republic, which stands completely divided, Several nations, Under some faceless deity, Culturally divisible, With liberty yet oppression for all.
like with most things precious- they are eventually taken for granted. America is only as great as those that live here.
its nice to see such a statement without finger pointing and blame placing. anyone with open eyes can see there is no one party that can take credit for our problems. if anyone is to blame it should be ourselves.
For me, I tend to take the side of those I agree with. Unfortunately, neither side has a majority so I fall somewhere in between disgusted and unhappy with the political atmosphere. I would love to get a movement going where everyone currently holding a political position is voted out. No more incumbents. It wouldnt matter which parties take the majority so long as its all newbies across the board. That would send a huge message.
I think that's one of the many things wrong with America. A lot of people are very supportive of this country and seem to think it can do little wrong, and with that "MURICA, FUCK YEAH " attitude that comes along with it, Americans have hugely swelled heads and egos. It's like we started out with visions of being jedi, the proverbial Yoda of the world and instead we became Lone Star from Spaceballs. We're like a parody of what we originally set out to be
I would imagine a lot of people would laugh. This is a very overly-dramatic rewriting of the Pledge of Allegiance. Some people think it's crazy and/or stupid, some think it's awesome/epic, other just think it's nothing to really pay any mind to. I like the small response I've gotten from writing this. I would be really interested in knowing what your World History teacher thought of it other than a laugh lol
