My assumption of the best example of a pledge would be by The Pledge of Allegiance. Is it taken seriously anymore by the majority of Americans or is it just something that we have been trained to do over the generations before starting a school day, sporting event, or NASCAR race? I’m sure that most of you who are engaged in the happenings of this country have seen the picture of our muslim/communist plant, Barack Hussein Obama, holding his hands down by his groin area while everyone else had their hand on their heart during the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance. That gesture was nothing short of un-American.
A pledge should not be taken lightly. Our Military members have all taken a pledge to protect, defend and uphold our Constitution and have been successful in defending our rights for over 200 years. Our politicians have taken the same pledge, but in their case, not a very good track record when it comes to defending the Constitution.

Some of us have made a pledge to our spouses as well. How well has that worked out for some as of late? When this pledge means nothing, divorce is certain. Or what about the pledge that we made to God upon accepting Jesus Christ as our lord and savior? The word “Christian” meaning Christ like. Are we living up to that pledge? Are we even trying to?
When our founders were faced with the challenge of not only establishing a viable government, they also knew that they would have to fight to the death in order to secure the Liberty and Freedom that they so desired. So to this end, they all decided to “pledge” their lives,fortunes and sacred honors,(their individual covenants with their creator) in order to make this happen. Can you, or are you willing to take the same pledge that our Founders did? Will you stand by it at all cost? Only you and your Creator will ever know the true answer. As always,fellow Patriots, stay safe and be aware of your surroundings.
