Mr. Allen will speak on the problems of making the pledge of allegiance mandatory in certain meetings, schools and public events as well as the overall topic of what it means to be a patriot today. Several years ago he recommended the following as A Patriot’s Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States of America and to the ideals for which they stand; among these are the rights of the people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, with freedom and justice for all.

As he has said, “there is no need to mention God or the flag, which is merely a symbol, or that we are indivisible. It goes without saying that we as a nation of people are often divided and take great liberty to express those divisions whenever and wherever we choose. The creed behind the symbol is what we as a nation should be pledging allegiance to, not a piece of cloth.”

James Preston Allen is the Founding Publisher of Random Lengths News which is the Greater Los Angeles Harbor Areas leading independent newspaper. He has served as its executive editor since 1979 and is also an artist and musician. For over three decades he has been a guiding progressive political force in the greater Los Angeles Harbor community. He is the recipient of the Amicus Collegii award from Los Angeles Harbor College He also has been honored by the San Pedro Neighbors for Peace and Justice in 2009 as the “Peace Maker of the Year”.
