My political pledge

November 12, 1980

I pledge my allegiance to God alone, now and forever.

I gratefully and proudly acknowledge the United States of America as my country. While it is my country, I will obey its laws when they represent the authority given this country by God, through its people, as defined in our Constitution.

I will cooperate with all properly elected or appointed officials of our government when they seek to enforce such legitimate laws.

I will respect the flag of my country, as a symbol of the liberty and justice which men will enjoy in our country so long as our written Constitution limits the authority of our laws and the powers of our leaders.
