48. aside from marriage vows

why would any american pledge allegiance to anything other than the flag and the republic for which it stands? One nation; indivisible with liberty and justice for all.

That's what I have a problem with when it comes to office holders throwing in with 'pledges' to Norquist. Their first, lawfully sworn duty
is to all of the people for whom they are elected to represent THEIR interests in this government, not to one of its citizens who doesn't want to pay his fair share of taxes.

How would norquist know what was going on in meetings and negotiations Obama is having with whatever party? It's not like
he's in the room--anything he hears, he hears second hand, a.k.a. hearsay, inadmissible. Clearly, he doesn't take seriously
the various polling numbers which have come out recently showing the nation's total disgust with republicans of every level of
government. Wisconsin must have gotten past him.

It is insane and proof of living in an alternative universe to say that Obama has made no effort to work with congress. That has
been the main problem! He goes too far for consensus, when norquist and all those of his stripe know that their mission was
to frustrate the president implementing his policies. It has been admitted to as much by far too many.
