The Pledge of Allegiance is even worse than can be imagined by people who oppose it due to the "under God" part. When they find out how bad it is they think that eliminating the "under God" part won't improve it at all. If you are an effective writer, then do the world a favor and write a lot about the pledge to educate all ignorant Americans.
The Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the stiff-armed salute adopted later by German national socialists. One way that Hitler was inspired to use the American gesture was via sports events including Harvard football via Ernst Hanfstaengl, a Harvard grad. Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge in 1892) and Edward Bellamy were American national socialists who influenced Nazis, their rituals (robotic chanting in unison on command in government schools as in the pledge), their dogma and their symbols (e.g. the swastika used as crossed S-letters for socialism). See the discoveries of the noted historian Dr. Rex Curry. Look for the eye-popping photographs and videos of Americans doing nazi salutes. http://rexcurry.net/pledge.html
Here is some more bad news. Bellamy was a religious wacko and the pledge was only a small part of a larger published program that he wrote with various prayers, hymns, bible references, and references to god, including Bellamy's use of the term "under God." When you realize what a wacko he was (a Christian socialist), you realize that "under God" left out of the pledge was almost an oversight by him. As far as Bellamy was concerned, he would have been delighted to have the entire world not only do his pledge, but do the whole friggin semi-religious program of which it was a small part.

- I work for the "Stop The Pledge" foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to freeing Americans from the Pledge of Allegiance and its putrid past of robotic nazi-style brainwashing. Americans are ignorant about their Pledge of Allegiance. Please see the work of the historian Dr. Rex Curry cited in the book "Libertarian History" by the author Lin Xun. It includes these shockers: (1) that the "Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag" was the origin of the Nazi salute and Nazi behavior; (2) that the military salute was the origin of the Nazi salute (via the military salute's use in the original Pledge of Allegiance) and; (3) Swastikas represented crossed "S" letter shapes for "socialist" under Hitler. At amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/153544326X At kindle https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01J0FV8AQ The National Socialist German Workers Party was influenced by American National Socialists, including Francis Bellamy (author of the Pledge) and his cousin and cohort Edward Bellamy (the author of American books on National Socialism). Remove the Pledge from the flag. Remove the flag from schools. Remove schools from government.
