Time For A Rewrite Of The Pledge Of Allegiance?

Advertisement

Editor:

I pledge allegiance to the flag

of the United States of America

and to the republic for which it stands,

one nation under God, indivisible,

with liberty and justice for all.

Our Pledge of Allegiance is outdated and needs to be rewritten to reflect current conditions. We are no longer “one nation,” we are two nations, one comprised of blue states and the other, red states. We have two houses of representatives, one on one side of the aisle and the other on the left. This proves that we need to delete the use of “indivisible” from our pledge, as we are divided by party affiliations and loyalties. So we either have to rewrite the “pledge” to reflect this current condition, or come together and impress upon our elected officials that they are there to conduct themselves and their performance based on the needs of the nation ... neither Republican nor Democrat. Our president needs to stop referring to “those on the other side of the aisle” and address Congress as one legislative body, elected to represent one nation ... indivisible ...

Let’s put aside all references to the “other side of the aisle” and arrange the seating by state, alphabetically, Republican sitting beside Democrat, and addressing the issues based on their constituents’ wishes.

And then, let’s get on with the business at hand, once again being “one nation” and “indivisible.”

Well said. United we stand, Divided we fall. That is the simple truth.
