Dictators and dystopianists, that's who.
REAL pledges are for ADULTS who mean what they say

I've met very few Americans who don't like it. I never questioned it before but I do understand why some don't think it is necessary for school kids to make a pledge everyday. Usually, pledges are made when you join a group. Repeating it everyday takes away from it's meaning, don't you think?

I guess all Democrats hate the pledge of allegiance because the pledge of allegiance says that the United States of America is a republic!

I kind of dislike it. I have nothing against the flag or the republic for which it stands, that's not the problem.
Any seven year old can recite the pledge of allegiance for you. But ask him what it means and he shrugs his shoulders. What's 'allegiance'? [Shrug] "I dunno." What's a republic? "It's a country, I think."
Reciting the pledge of allegiance every day doesn't make you a patriotic American any more than saying 'Vrum! Vrum!' makes you a car!
Personally I think patriotism, like sex, is something that should be discussed in the home. Every parent should teach his kid what it means to be American, his own view of what patriotism is (because, of course, different people have different opinions of this!) Like sex education or even religious education, schools have to do it because parents fail!
Also, the addition of the words 'under God' is a violation of the 'establishment clause' of the 1st Amendment. Courts have decided this! But they decided it was 'de minimus', i.e. so small a violation as to be tolerated. But that's not my main objection. My main objection is that reciting rote loyalty oaths doesn't make kids good citizens.

Generally speaking, these types suffer from severe emotional problems, the kind that would once have them checked-in by moms or grams in a New York minute.
Today, however, we're told we must take them seriously. Can you believe it!?! lol
