If you read this and agree that "under God" should be left in the pledge, then just LIKE or SHARE it and forward your thoughts to those you have voted for it to be left in.
If you ignore it and don't LIKE or SHARE it you are voting no to "under God". Easy huh!!!
Official versions (changes in bold italics)
1892 "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1892 to 1923 "I pledge allegiance to my flag and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1923 to 1924 "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States and to the republic for which it stands: one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1924 to 1954 "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands; one nation indivisible with liberty and justice for all."
1954 to Present "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."
This is not posted for discussion. If you agree, LIKE and SHARE... I don't want to know one way or the other. By my posting it, you know how I feel.
Do you believe that the word God should stay in American culture?
NBC had a poll on this question. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the percentage was this:
86% to keep the words, In God We Trust on our currency and God in the Pledge of Allegiance
That is a pretty 'commanding' public response in the “For’ category!.
86% of Americans responding said that believe the word God should stay...
Therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having 'In God We Trust' on our money and having God in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Why are we catering to this 14%? Is it out of some false sense of tolerance? Is it just because we have accepted the brainwashing foisted upon us? Say NO to the usurpers!
In God We Trust!
Many of our fathers, sons, brothers and sisters served to protect and defend this nation in wars against tyranny and many also paid the ultimate price for our freedom, speaking the word God at the end. We dishonor their memories when we yield to the small number of ignorant, manipulative people who would deny us our heritage.It’s time for real Americans to stand up and defend the values upon which our country was founded!

. . . [He] is arrogant and never at rest. Because he is as greedy as the grave and like death is never satisfied, he gathers to himself all the nations and takes captive all the peoples. "Will not all of them taunt him with ridicule and scorn, saying, 'Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion! How long must this go on?'” (Habakkuk 2:5-6 NIV)
A certain national leader, who has risen far above his ability to lead, can be described by these ancient words of the prophet Habakkuk. This unnamed, but prominent leader (if one can be generous and call him that) must be warned that he is in the spotlight and will be called to answer for his arrogance, greed, lies and thievery.
Taking multiple million dollar vacations at government expense, smoothing the way for generous gifts to nations who are our enemies, overtly removing protection from Israel, and decimating our military—reducing its ability to protect us—are all, or should be, considered treasonous, impeachable and prosecutable offenses.
His sycophants in Congress as well should take note and bring their behavior in line with good practices of morality and ethics. Continuing to serve the present leader reveals their true immorality and ethical behavior.
A question commonly asked of our fellow citizens is, “Are you behaving yourself?” It is usually answered in the affirmative. The true answer is, “Of course I am behaving myself.” The differentiator is the quality of the behavior.
Failure to constantly evaluate ones behavior has eternal consequences. Take note, Obama, Pelosi, et al!
