It is odd that this should come up so coincidentally. Actually, having grew up in an area with a large population of citizens of other countries, I wondered about making their kids "pledge allegience" Remember, it is a pledge to the flag, and the republic. It doesn't say democracy.
Also, the Declaration of Independence, is kind of scary. It says if the governement is not responsive to the needs, liberty, of the people or becomes tyrannical, the people have the right to declare their independence and establish a new gov't. Interesting to note that the Declaration of Independence is not, in any way, the law of the United States of America. In fact, the very right to rise up and be independent was what this United States government fought against in the Civil War. Remember the Montana Freemen. In many ways they, despite their other faults, were trying to uphold the very concepts of the Declaration of Independence, and the government crushed them like bugs. It is surprising how many Americans don't have the foggiest notion that the document we celebrate next week, along with it's concepts of inalienable rights...ain't worth squat in this modern day.
