Listen to a classroom reciting the Pledge sometime. It's atonal repetition of sounds, looks like the cult of personality nonsense we used to mock dictatorships for, and only appears to engender an idolatry for the flag with no regard for the principles of our country. You really want to make the Bill of Rights some rote chore that signifies "that thing we used to do before the morning announcements"?
