I Pledge Allegiance To My Friends of The United States of

People in office
today have a greater allegiance to friends, than they do to
their country. And how is it that such people get into office? They
get into office because so many Americans vote on the same grounds
that their allegiances are, to their friends first.
Too many people care more about
what others think of them, than what is good for our country on a

even deal with someone close to us being upset with us, how on earth
can we deal with entire nations being against us? And how can we
ever be true patriots?
