Which Pledge?

To explain: I used the flag image at and imposed over it the lines of the Pledge of Allegiance by Rev Bellamy from "I pledge allegiance to my Flag and for the Republic for which is stands - one Nation indivisible - with Liberty and Justice for all." Bellamy was a socialist and hated the divisions of the Civil War." (EDIT: That is Bellamy's handwriting.)

"What, to the Slave, is your Fourth of July?"

"The United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion."

* "Wall of separation between Church & State."

* "But this opens with a vast accession of strength from their younger recruits, who, having nothing in them the ... principles of ’76, now look to a ... government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations... This will be to them a next best blessing to the monarchy of their first aim, and perhaps the surest stepping-stone to it."

* "I hope we shall ... crush in it’s (sic) birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations;which dare ... to challenge our government"
