We need to seriously consider the laws of God and live them. How can "God bless America" if we are neglecting his laws and commandments. (for those who dont know where his laws and commandments are, they are in the bible. God calls prophets, and the prophets write the word of God, which is the Bible.) If any of you have doubts if the bible is true, or if there is a God, why dont you all try and ask God if he exsists, and pray if the Bible is the word of God. We have a purpose in this life, and God has given us the plan(scripture) to tell us what we are doing here, and things we can and can not do, he is testing us to see if we can overcome our weaknesses, and sins and live a clean life.

P.S. I cant wait to hear the responses on this!!
The government of the US is not a theocracy, so what you posted has not bearing on the issure whatsoever.

The "in god we trust" line on coins was added during the Civil War (used much as Dubya uses his god is on our side blurb).

The "one nation under god" line in the pledge of allegiance (1954), the "in god we trust" line was added to paper currency in 1957, the "so help me god" line was added as a suffix to the oaths of office for federal justices and judgesin the 1950's (not sure of the exact year), and the US motto was changed to "in god we trust" in 1956. If you notice all of these (except the Civil War one) were altered during the the height of the cold war and also during the hysteria of the McCarthy witch hunts...not a period in US history which should be particularly celebrated. They have not "always been there." As for the one altered during the Civil War, well...it was used to fire up people.
