Wouldn't it be better to recite words from the Declaration of Independence?
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it."
Agreed, Anna! Really that's more like the "Pledge of Rebellion," and those who say and believe it assert their right to rebel against tyranny and their pledge that they will when government "becomes destructive to these ends." We need a lot less allegiance and a lot more rebellion in this age of tyranny!
