Not to mention that it's got a catchier tune

Ernest Miller makes a compelling case for replacing the Pledge of Allegiance with the Preamble to the Constitution (or, as a commenter suggests, an adaptation thereof).

I don't agree that the values expressed in the (pre-God) Pledge are inherently unpatriotic, but certainly the Preamble is a more accurate and more eloquent statement of the American idea.

Definitely a catchier tune, but I used to get tripped up because the "Schoolhouse Rock" version omits "of the United States."
