  1. big government idea getting bigger…are they going to "lock up" the dangerous kids that dont want to say it? this isnt North Korea where people are FORCED to pledge their allegiance daily…whats next, a Ducey propaganda station that spouts pro Ducey fake news? telling everyone how less money for schools makes Arizona BETTER

  2. Which version of the Pledge of Allegiance are they talking about? The original text as written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy, "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all," the first re-write in 1923 with the words, "the Flag of the United States of America" added, becoming, "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all," or the current version, written in 1954, in response to the Communist threat of the times, where President Eisenhower (in McCarthy-era paranoia) encouraged Congress to add the words "under God," creating the 31-word pledge we say today, "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."
