    and I became politically aware in about 2003/2004 when it became incredibly obvious that Bush and co had lied us into war for profiteering, both financially and politically.  That was when I decided that I had had enough pledging allegiance to the flag that Bush and his cronies so disgustingly wrapped themselves in that I made a point of not standing up and remaining silent.  One of my teachers basically tried to get me to do it and I was incredibly ticked off, but there was no way for them to "force" me to say it.

    If I were to say it now (for whatever reason) I would leave out the "under God."

    Anyway, this is getting a little far from elections so...
