ah yes, the original and best pledge, the way it was meant to be. 

^wrong. our nation was founded under God and christianity. it should stay that way. not forcing it upon everyone, we have the right to choose. but it should stay.

*Facepalm*You know “under God” was added in 1954, right? The original pledge, written by Francis Bellamy in 1892, read: “I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”Nothing about God or even America… huh.
