"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, and with liberty and justice for all." This is the pledge I repeatedly made in school while growing up in Florida. I think we need to turn the clock back, honor God as God, put ourselves under His authority, and plead for mercy for our personal and national rebellion. Then we may once again become "one nation, under God, indivisible, and with liberty and justice for all." So goes our response to God and His moral laws, so goes the nation.

Lighthouse52 - I agree with you and proudly said that same pledge everyday during my formative schooling in St. Louis.
Then in Feb 1070, when I stood on the stage at Rolla HS, I said this pledge before two gold bars were affixed to my lapels:
“I, _____ (SSAN), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of 2nd Lt do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter

So help my God."
Notice that the oath says NOTHING about following the unlawful orders of the President, but that
". . . defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies both foreign AND DOMESTIC."
I believe that it is about time to do just that.

Our failure in chief gave us his annual blurred vision of America again Tuesday night.

Based on his State of the Union message, Barack Obama’s eyesight is as ideologically impaired as ever.

Despite four years of failure, he still sees only one road America can go down to regain its economic health.

Not down the capitalist road of free enterprise and liberty that made us the richest country in history.

He wants to continue down the socialist road to more federal government -- which means more Obama taxes, more Obama spending, more Obama debt and more...
