Liberal 9th Circuit Rule Pledge Unconstitutional

Today in San Francisco, US District Judge Lawrence Karlton, ruled that the "Pledge of Allegiance" is unconstitutional, via Fox:


Lots of people think this is a very good development for President Bush's selection of a Justice to replace Sandra Day O'Connor like Hugh Hewitt

I tend to agree with the assessment. Back in March of 2003 when the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals first ruled that the Pledge was unconstitutional, CNN had a post on the reaction by the President and the Senate here:


President Bush called the decision "ridiculous," while the U.S. Senate voted 99-0 for a resolution expressing support for the pledge.

The public overwhelmingly supports the Pledge in the range of 75-25%. The ruling by the 9th Circuit based in San Francisco, I think will become the poster child for current times of an "Activist Judiciary" and will bode well for the President's next appointment. The 9th Circuit is an extension and creation of the ultra left, and a majority of voting Americans see that connection. They are going to be much more supportive of a right of center Justice verses demanding a left of center Justice after this ruling.

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands: one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.
