this is why i dont say it....(i pledge allegiance) the whole explanation is why i dont want to say these three words (to the flag of the UNITED states of america) since when were we ever really united? our country is split up in two like 99% of the time and all we do is f***ing argue and im tired of it. im not saying we all have to believe the same thing and i hope we never do i just wish we could agree to disagree and not say that just because you dont believe its "right" that its "wrong". (and to the republic for which it stands) all i see this country standing for is hate. hate for anyone that doesnt believe in what we believe. we keep teaching this younger and younger and all it does is put others down. there is a peaceful way to live ur life and it doesnt have to be a big competition.(one nation under god) to me this really does sound were trying to establish a religion which goes back on our whole "free to practice any religion" deal. we say we are but all over people are putting people down just cause of their religion and it just doesnt make sense to me. (indivisible with liberty and justice for all) this is bull shit. ill agree that theres liberty and justice for all when gay marriage is legal, race wont matter at all, religion wont be something you judge people by, and everyone will stop fighting over stupid things and actually get stuff done. alrighty...i feel better.
