Glad To Be In America

I know that as a nation we have our troubles and I pray every day that we will CONTINUE to have our freedoms! Of course in order to continue to have our freedoms we have to speak-up and fight when government wants to or over steps it's ground!

My last post already touched on what type of government our founding fathers gave us and what kind of government we must fight to maintain. I before seeing that video never gave much thought about what type of government our founding fathers gave us. I like so many thought it was a democracy. After all that's all I really remember from high school government class. (Oh that's another story all together)

Since seeing that video I have given the topic, what kind of government America is, some more thought. The one thing that strikes me is our own pledge of allegiance:
"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, with Liberty and Justice for all."
To the Republic?? I never thought about that!! So much is given to to the phrase "under God" which is good, but what about the phrase "to the Republic"?

I'm glad that America was founded with a Republic for a government, because it is this type of government that has allowed all of us to homeschool our children and it is this type of government that has driven others, from Germany, to come to America so that they can homeschool their children as well.
