Pledgs of Allegiance

OUR NEW PLEDGE of ALLEGIANCE

It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the
established authorities are wrong. (Voltaire 1694 – 1778)
[and it still is!]


Forward:

The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892.

 Bellamy had hoped that the pledge would be used by citizens in any country. In its original form it read:

 "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

In 1923, the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" were added. At this time it read:

"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."

In 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, President Eisenhower encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today. Bellamy's daughter objected to this alteration.

Today it reads:

"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."


Proposal

Once again, as in 1954, there is a Socialist threat poised to undermine and destroy the very principals of liberty and the protector of our rights and prosperity, "our Constitution."

 We must encourage our fellow citizens and petition Congress to change the “Pledge of Allegiance”, by adding these words to it’s official language, “and the Constitution”. Creating a 34-word pledge that would be adopted as our “National Pledge of Allegiance.”

This new pledge would be recited, as usual, before commencing public meetings, official gatherings, and at the daily opening bell of all institutions of education throughout the country. The amended pledge would read:

 "I pledge allegiance to the flag, and the Constitution 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."
