Where is the unity?

While standing beside my desk in grade school, with my right hand over my heart and pledging loyalty to the symbol of America, the American flag, I learned to say The Pledge of Allegiance, which states that America is a republic, not a democracy.

So, how does an American, a legally registered votes, protect the flame of knowledge and truth? A carefully crafted like is just as valuable as the truth. Half of the truth can be viewed as a lie. The current president put his hand on the Holy Bible and swore to defend the Constitution of the United States of America. I can think of three (3), possibly four (4) amendments that are not being defended but attacked.

This is not unity but betrayal.
