A long time ago I learned a few simple phrases that go something like this:
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the United State of America,
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one nation, under God, indivisible,
with liberty and justice for all.
Now the last time i checked those words still hold true today. Yet for some reason, most people feel as though this country is allowed to be divided, that liberty and justice for everyone only applies to a select few, and that America doesn’t stand for anything. It’s weird how we only choose to accept things that help or apply to us, but when it’s not convenient we choose to ignore such things. So while you might have voted for someone else, that doesn’t mean we aren’t one country. Stats should tell elected officials they didn’t receive 100% of the votes, so they should learn that they have to also represent those that didn’t vote for them just as much as those that did. We are all imperfect, so we all have a lot more in common than we think.
