    I think that is part of the problem......some people want all the benefits this country provides but they could care less about the country itself.......I can understand a child but adults should know better.......

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Anyone who is old enough to decide which country they want to pledge their allegiance to, is old enough to vote.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    That's really not an answer. I didn't ask where else in the world the words are used. I asked what 'under god' has to do with our country. It might as well say 'under santa' or 'under fairies'. What does it have to do with any goddamn thing in our country?

    Do you even read what you respond to? We've just come full circle. And the point is... what? The words are in the pledge, yes. But what does 'under mythological being' have to do with OUR COUNTRY?

    Let me give you a quick recap to save some time:

    YOU: I even said "Under God" which Liberals seem to hate today.......

    ME: Some PEOPLE don't like it. I know I didn't, it was silly. Like saying "under leprechauns". Doesn't make sense.

    YOU: I think that is part of the problem......some people want all the benefits this country provides but they could care less about the country itself.......I can understand a child but adults should know better.......

    ME: What does 'under god' have to do with the country?

    YOU: Under God is part of the pledge to this country.....

    ME: WTF?

    You are easily confused......The pledge is made up of words......when you say it you should mean it.....Under God is part of the pledge ...The SCOTUS has so stated......I will never understand what some of you ****ing lefties are doing here....You hate it so much..........

    If you understood politics well enough to decide which country you wanted pledge your allegiance to, on your own, without brain washing, then you were mature enough to vote.
