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.
With the government shutting down because they're a bunch of little children in a pissing contest, I decided to slap up a little something.

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.

I get embarrassed about this one when I'm not feeling impassioned by some political thing my brother tells me about. It is hard to take sides, so the Pledge was a nice template =D

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.

Aye aye, well spoken ^^
Although here it is bad to support our country. It is sort of considered racist  -.-'

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 :headbang:" 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

You'll cower in fear when it comes to talking smack about America, but when it comes to saying you got seasons of Dexter through "other means" you just blurt out loud :laughing:

Watch Spaceballs! Team America is stupid ;P

Someone called it satire, but it's scarily true.  It's not even funny; it's frightening.  Job well done, sir/ma'am.  Job well done.
