The American Pledge of Allegiance. Shows one's dedication to America, its flag, and its founding principles. Why are people so disrespectful of the flag, the constitution, and the pledge? Because they hate the constitution, our republic, and the liberties that we hold dear to our hearts. They don't yet realize that once the government takes our liberties away that they won't ever give them back.
Our liberties aren't granted to us by the Government but are our God-given rights (or we're born with them as American Citizens, whichever is your belief). Everyone is equal in America. Either you sink or you swim. So many are trying to ban the Pledge of Allegiance. Cancel others because they want to recite the pledge because they believe in the country and its founding principles. It's rather disgusting if you ask me.
