I pledge allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America and to the democracy for which it stands, a nation with freedom and justice for all.

Why change a good thing?
That pledge was created just so for a reason...
A good reason.
America was born a Christian Nation - like it or not.
And don't blah-blah-blah me, I don't want to listen to the BS of crackpots trying to re-write history.
And no I'm not going to debate it.
If you think I'm wrong too bad. You can keep your opinion, it's worthless dog rot to me.
The number of lives that have gone to grave to keep that pledge alive demands, DEMANDS the pledge remains unchanged.
The fallen, that gave their LIVES for America - by their blood alone paid the price to keep that pledge alive and intact AS IS!
To change it? Well, would just go to show what a piece of *bleep* the USA is becoming. Wishy-washy have to please everyone bunch of can't stand up for what's right bunch of p-whipped little wannabees.
Added note: You think any other country, ohhh let's say a Muslim Country would change THEIR pledge of allegiance to make all the newcomers and discomfits happy?
Ha ha ha ha ha!
LOL, nope, only in Americant

The compulsory recitation of the pledge by school children is at odds with the freedom we proclaim to have.
The 1950's addition of "under god" is also unnecessary
I'd suggest we do away with the pledge altogether.

But on the other hand, isn't it good to remind people of how they can shape our country's future?
