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….

I thought I’d post this primarily to myself, because in a recent dialog, found myself thinking of another American as my enemy.

They are not my enemy. Just another American who has a different opinion. Different opinions are all over the place. In music, In sports, as well as in how best to run this country…. And just like a “Battle of the Bands”, or a contest upon a sports field of some type, in the political arena, each side tries its best to outdo the other…

But, we have to chill. After a game, the losers congratulate the winners. That is where we need to go here in the political arena as well. So Republicans, come congratulate us…!!!

(just kidding. Thought I throw that out just to remind you of how good we were.)

Bottom line, if someone were invading our country, we would all line up under the flag and cover each other with fire, as we attacked a common enemy.

We can never forget that. Our allegiance is to the Republic…. not a philosophy or an idea.
