The pledge is for the hardline tough Christians who are tough and ready to push their uniformity onto the masses. Get ready to talk tough with the lockstep chanting patriotism of the tough-enough Merican Christians. They believe in themselves and never give up hope that they can take away your freedom under a new theocratic state.
The words "under god" were inserted into the pledge as an offshoot of the hysterical McCarthyism of the day, about the same time "In god we trust" was made our national motto, replacing E pluribus unum (which roughly means "Out of many, one".) I still resent hell out of it, because it was the beginning of trying to turn a secular government into a theologically-based government by bringing religion into the Pledge of Allegiance...the concept of which I'm not nuts about anyway, but that's another topic... and our national motto.
If someone has already brought this up, I apologize. I haven't read the entire thread. This subject is just a real pet peeve of mine.
Right-wingers love to profess and shout the name of God, taking it in vain.....rather than living and demonstrating his principles.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
