Are you more brain-washed than a fifth gradder?

Every single day elementry school aged children are required to say the pledge of allegance. Like a cult everyone stands, faces the flag and recites the same montage every day. The question arrises are we brain-washing elementry school aged children or are we creating "good citizens?"
I think the pledge of allegance is wrong to make elentry school children say.
Studies have show, that young children are more impressionable than older children. By saying the pledge are we allowing our children to not think for themselves?
Or are we taking the sensitivity of patriotism away from young children?
When something is repeted over and over again, does it loose it's luster?

Just soemthing to think about....
