Pledging Allegiance In the Right Way

Editor, News-Register:

U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler earned two, repeat, two “Medals of Honor.” He wrote so truthfully, “War Is a Racket.”

I leave your with this pledge:

I pledge allegiance to the flag (not to the president) of the United States of America (not to the United Nations), and to the republic (not democracy) for which it stands (not liberation), one nation (not world government), under God (not world bankers), indivisible (not co-existence), with liberty (not liberal federal control) and justice for all (not just for traitors).
