That's gotta be the most absurd thing that I've ever heard. Well, apparantly the Senate thinks so as well, as they voted 99-0 to overturn California's proposal to get rid of it from American classrooms. Ninety-nine to ZERO. Considering this is the Senate, that really says something. Every single politician there unanimously voted to keep the pledge in the classroom.
Anyway, just to make sure this doesn't happen again, go to WePledge.com and sign the pettition there. They are gathering support for keeping the pledge in the classroom, and are attempting to get it ratified into an ammendment to the Constitution so that no one can mess around with it in the future. So far, fifteen state govenors and nearly as many lt gov's have signed this pettition. Two-thirds needs to be in favor of this, so even though it seems to be blatantly obvious, make sure you sign it as well so that our country will see that this is truly what the people want.
Republicans, democrats, green party, reform party, liberatians, independants, EVERYBODY is voting together on this one. No matter what your political preference, be sure you let your voice be heard as well.
