Interesting. I would have liked to qualify my slider response with some comments. Our dwindling liberty has nothing to do with gay marriage whatsoever. Wait until federal health is foisted on us all and then you will realize what you had, and what you lost. On the other hand, freedom means not having to recite a pledge if you don't want to, and while I do not share his personal view on gay marriage, I 100% support his right to not recite the pledge if he chooses, and for whatever reason he chooses.
