As far as liberals telling you what to say and think...actually, isn't the stance here breaking a person away in order to choose what to think and a
suggestion that maybe we shouldn't auto-say what the state instructs us to say as children?
Durned liberals makin people think about stuff..why can't they just let the state program us all without all these pesky questions.
No that's not the stance Liberals are taking, maybe it use to be but not anymore and you know this. Otherwise the Liberals would say things like " I
dont believe in that, maybe you should ask yourself why you do"? Instead of saying "Brainswash brainwash, no god its a lie, no god it's a lie. Dont do
this do that etc etc. Liberals are great when you agree with them but you disagree and get venom spewed down your throat for it.
They are the ones brainwashing and ill be damned if I let them do that to my kids. The Pledge Of Allegiance is important to ANYONE who loves this
country and they know and understand the reasons why. No Romans here just a bunch of Americans that love their country. Dont love my country i'll be
happy to pack your bags.
Actually, you don't get to dictate what liberals are saying about a subject..especially when you have it so wrong.
It is akin to me saying Conservatives demand children must be trained in firearms, forcibly if required, because a few people have said that...(and
they have. I participated in a thread about some crappy conservative commune in the works, and one part of their "constitution" was a absolute
requirement for all kids to be taught how to fire weapons and hit human sized targets).
Your country...did you purchase the entire country? What makes -this- (will accept "our" also) country great is diversity of thoughts, ideas,
opinions, and ideals...a mixing bowl (salad or soup..take your pick). This is the second time that you have decided if someone doesn't share -your-
opinion or something, they should leave the country...
Which makes you very much against the whole foundation of this country and its people..
making you the epitome of what actually is anti-American. Hows that for some irony.
The pledge is, and always will be a form of indoctrination. Its practiced in some form on every nation..from pledges, national anthems, etc. This is
not open for debate, this is simply fact. What is open for debate is, is patriotic indoctrination a bad thing? Personally I think not. Its important
for citizens of any nation to have pride and desire in their own country. Patriotism, competition, etc..all of these things are required for a society
to survive amongst other nations with equal patriotism.
The double edged sword though is that patriotism can and has been used as a weapon against other nations and even their own people (see Nazi Germany
again and the endless quotes from the Reich about how they use patriotism for their personal gain).
So ya...erm...you really don't know much about liberals. You know maybe one or two people whom tend to go a bit on the absurd side and paint everyone
with that brush.
Here is something to chew on
Tim McVeigh was a conservativelibertarian...should I apply the same method as you in considering conservatives?
