    Not if you believe in the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, and structure of government. It would require a Constitutional Amendment. Good luck getting that passed.

    West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette 319 U.S. 624 in 1943

    United States Supreme Court holding that the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment protects students from being forced to salute the American flag or say the Pledge of Allegiance in public school

    America doesnt do loyalty oaths.

    Leave that for Russia and China and places like that. Or is that what you were thinking?

    No. You can't be forced to say it, especially the added garbage under god.

    Nope because freedom of speech. Personally I will obey God before obeying my nation.

    If you refuse to pledge allegiance, then your citizenship should instantly be revoked. This includes kneeling when the national anthem is going on.

    Since your citizenship will be revoked, the government will collect all your belongings, sell them, and throw you onto a boat to Cuba.
