"I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers
are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a
perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which
American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. "
"I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect the flag, and to defend it against all enemies."
