    Re: Do You Really Mean It When You Recite The Pledge Of Allegiance “With liberty and.

    When I recite the pledge I always speak the truth....I change the words to "with liberty and justice for some", because this country has never stood for liberty and justice for ALL. Until it does I refuse to pretend and recite the false pretense.

    I'm a member of several fraternal organizations and we begin meetings reciting the pledge. I always feel hypocritical when I say "with liberty and justice for all" because of our International behaviour as a Nation.

    Are there any hypocrites out there?

    Yes, even for Muslims.
    No
    I don’t recite the Pledge
    I do not really recite the pledge, but all deserve liberty and justice.

    Always been a fan of the pledge. Was confused about where the "vote" was. Are you just keeping track in your head....??

    Not to mention we fine and lock up more of our own citizens for such trivial bullsh!t in this nation than any other first world country or even third world country on this planet. Justice for all as long as you can buy your way out.

    I make it easy, I don't pledge allegiance to anything. It's anti-American.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Do I believe the nation is under God? I don't think God has a nationality. Do I believe in what the republic stands for as expressed in the Constitution? Yes. Do I believe the country is indivisible? Uh, no. Do I believe in liberty and justice for all? Yes.
    The nation is not under god and our atheist founders would be offended if they knew we put god in our currency and forced our children to make pledges to god against their will.

    Never said it in school. My folks were Jehovah's Witnesses and forbade me to do so.
