  1. To me, the spirit of the flag and everything for which it stands is best expressed by freedom-loving dissidents than by cowering sheep who recite the Pledge out of fear of being viewed as a nonconformist if they don’t. Parts of the pledge are great, particularly as originally written by an American socialist scoutmaster in the 19th century. I can get behind “liberty and justice for all,” as an idea, but not mindlessly, mechanically, and involuntarily in an era when such a thing does not exist (did it ever?).

        1. you do hve the Freedom to ask. But you don’t need to ask as you don’t believe in American Exceptionalism or believe that the USA was ever great
