Who;s Pledge of Allegiance?
The most dreamt of destination by the tragically oppressed citizens of the world is the United States of America.

Those wishful worshippers have all lived through persecution and prejudice, far across the oceans. These experiences certainly widen their understanding of government and hopefully create the desire for a land of freedom and democracy.
The United States of America is one such land. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free." These are the words stated on the Statue of Liberty, which has welcomed immigrants since 1886 when the French gave it as a gift.

Our homeland is riddled with struggles, historical milestones, and tragedy which have secured the liberties we hold dear. These can not be denied. The home of the brave represents much greater opportunities than oppressive countries targeting control over the people. Citizens from around the world have always sought after what we hold dear, and we strive to continue that process.
However, this country was founded on the moral and ethical values of a religion.This is precisely why we continue to struggle today. All of the positive values on which Christianity is founded are rooted into the genesis of the United States. Many of the Founding Fathers were religious men, and many of them were not. Regardless of faith, they understood the power of religion and the destruction which can result when used incorrectly.
The Constitution guarantees religious freedom as well as the separation of church
and state. Yet some government property and institutions have religious saying…
