The Pledge of Allegiance of America

“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”.

Our Founding Fathers knew the difference between Republic and democracy. They chose the best. I, Esther, feel strongly we need to remember “The United States of American is a Republic and is a Republican form of Government.

According to the Flag Code, the Pledge “should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart.

I feel it is important to notice that the Pledge of The United States of America states “Republic” not a Democracy. There is a difference and the words do not mean the same thing. In the times we are living today, there are some people who want you to believe the United States of America has a Democratic form of Government. Many TV news reporters call the United States of America a democracy. Saying it over and over again does not make it correct.

Who wrote the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance?

The pledge of allegiance was originally composed by Colonel George Balch in 1887 and later revised by Francis Bellamy in 1892. It was formally adopted as the pledge by Congress in 1942. It was revised to add the words “under God” in 1954 at the request of Dwight D. Eisenhower, President of the United States of America – 1953 – 1961.

When did the school children first recite the pledge of allegiance?

So it was in October 1892 Columbus Day programs that school children across the country first recited the Pledge of Allegiance this way: I pledge allegiance to my Flag and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for

    No one should stand for nor chant the Pledge of Allegiance because it was the origin of the notorious stiff-armed German socialist salute and of that type of bad behavior (that is one of the amazing discoveries of the historian Dr. Rex Curry, as described in the many books about the doctor’s work). The early pledge began with a military salute that was then extended outward to point at the flag (thus the stiff-arm gesture came from the pledge and from the military salute). The pledge was written in 1892 for kindergartners to be forced to recite under the flag at government schools (socialist schools). The pledge was written by an American socialist who influenced other socialists worldwide, including German socialists and other socialists globally. German socialists used the gesture under their flag’s notorious symbol (their symbol was used to represent crossed “S” letters for their “socialist” dogma -another one of the doctor’s discoveries). The pledge was part of a campaign for government to take over education and impose government schools (socialist schools) in the US, to spread Bellamy’s socialism. The pledge continues to be the origin of similar bad behavior even though the gesture was changed to hide the pledge’s putrid past. The pledge is central to the US’s police state and its continued growth.

    Francis Bellamy did not revise any prior pledge of allegiance. Bellamy’s pledge was independent of Balch’s. In that sense, the present pledge of allegiance was not composed by Balch.

    Hi Tiffany, Thank you for your comments. I did not have this knowledge and I thank you for educating the viewers and me. I did not know the social progressive party’s agenda was such a strong force in 1892. I personally felt a change in the school system when I was in high school in the 1950’s.

    I would like your comments regarding my belief the Democratic Party has been taken over by the Socialist Progressive Party. You comments are always welcome. Esther
