American Flag

As we celebrate our Independence Day on this July 4th, 2024, I am reminded of the phrase “One Nation Under God,” that we say when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance to flag of the United States of America with hands on our hearts. Written in August of 1892 by the socialist minister, Francis Bellamy,  originally, the Pledge did not include the words “under God.” These words were added in 1954 by President Eisenhower, who recognized the communist threat of his times and the devastating effect rulers of a Godless nation would have on our future.

To me, these words signify that our nation is indeed “One Nation under God,” NOT under Congress. Our nation is One Nation under God, NOT under the Supreme Court. Our nation is One Nation Under God, NOT under the President or any executive or corporate board. We derive our freedoms and our rights from GOD and we are not subservient to any government or ruler. We worship and serve ONLY GOD! And yet, in our everyday lives, we are treated like slaves to the system, voluntarily sending billions of our hard-earned cash to an address in  Washington DC, every single year! Then we watch television as our “representatives” in Congress play out voting dramas where they send our money abroad to help fight wars, and make impressive patriotic speeches about it. Oh yeah, that makes sense.

So when I see righteous patriots imprisoned and deprived of their God-given rights by incompetent, autocratic, and much too often demonic demagogues, I cringe. We didn’t vote for this. Our sons and daughters, uncles and fathers and grandfathers didn’t fight for this. Our mothers didn’t sacrifice the men of their families for this. And the women who served in the military did not enlist and serve for these power hungry idiots who wield power they steal to do nothing but oppress and extort ordinary citizens. And they expect us to believe we gave them a mandate to do this!

Then there are the bureaucrats, those sniveling civil “servants,” who collect huge paychecks funded by the taxes of those who can’t afford the food on their tables and the roofs over their heads, and somehow they finish their civic “duty” with millions of dollars in the bank. How did THAT happen? Try not to guess out loud or you’ll bring up some bile.

It is not my intention to make you sick on Independence Day, but to encourage each one of you to stay grounded in the truth. The truth is that we live in a Constitutional Republic, as One Nation, Under God.

All together now:

“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.”
