Replace the Star Spangled Banner with Schoolhouse Rock’s musical preamble to the U.S. Constitution, suggests Shannon Love on Chicago Boyz.
The Pledge of Allegiance should be replaced by the Declaration of Independence, Love adds.
We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are
Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
That to secure these rights,
Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,
So say we all!
I’d hate to give up “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” but I think the second idea is a good one.
