It might be better just to stop welfare and dump laws that prevent an income to the enterprising. If you want morals they do not buy.
What we have is learned helplessness.

Under god doesn't have anything to do with Christianity, god could be construed to mean anything anyone wants it to be, god could mean a tree to a druid.
Aren't to be many Druids around anymore I expect. I may hug a tree but I am not going to worship one!

Doesn't matter, god is subject to interpretation. It could be a sea monster for all we know.

The very fact that an imaginary figure rules makes belief a false system to solve problems. Objective reality has no beliefs.

He should have enuff respect for the Flag to repeat the Pledge of Allegiance. It repisents all the "Men and Women" that fought and died for Your Fredom. If you don't like it you should leave the Country and see how you like it where ever you go. I don't think anyone will try and stop you. In My eyes You should still be locked up. You dishoner all the "Service Men and Women" that are now serving to keep this Country FREE! And anyone that agrees with him should packup there belonging and go with the lawer.

We have no freedom when we are inspected and watched and listen to by the government. If the government can be selective in its enforcement of law then the public can be selective which laws it obeys.

The trouble is we can be locked up for being selective about which laws we will obey
