May the Lord be with us
"...One nation, under God, indivisable, with liberty and justice for all."
What a Great Tribute to the Pledge of Allegiance and What America Really Stands for... This is Americana at its finest. I have never seen this before.
Well considering that this device of indoctrination was composed a full 100+ years AFTER this nation formed it is a representation to me of a way the powers that be at the time wanted to exact an oath out of the populace. A method to keep people in line."...One nation, under God, indivisable, with liberty and justice for all."
What a neat thing to do! Did they like it? I thought that that might be the case in public schools now. I wasn't sure. I remember reciting the pledge every morning at school, facing the flag, with our hands over our hearts. (yep, I'm old. lol) Also bowing our heads at our desks and sharing the Lord's prayer. Wow. Add to that, learning the golden rule. Remember being chosen to carry and display the flag during assemblies? Walking down an aisle with the flags(s) as all the kids stood as it was taken to the tiny stage and placed in stansions at the corner of curtain?Thank you W Sierra! :thumb:
I just made my kids sit down and watch it with me again.
Sadly they are not allowed to recite it at school anymore. That is just one of the reasons we will be moving them out of the public education system.
Hi Bert! I don't think states' rights are in peril by any means. The pledge is/was just an afformation of alligence by individual citizens to the whole of our republic. I have no problem with that personally. But, completely separate from that, .. it may become necessary for state(s) to dissolve their association with the republic, as is their right, determined by each state's citizens. No small decision to be sure, but 100% within every state's Constitutional rights. We are a republic,.. a collection of 'united' states,.. or in some case, as with Texas (Texas is the Republic of Texas, someone correct me if I'm wrong) a slightly different entity, but STILL a member of the union BY CHOICE. Very important. As I read the Constitution and supporting documents, the states can bow out if they deem it necessary and desirable.I suppose the indivisible part means that states rights are dead.
