# Just another riley riddle

Just another riley riddle:

My prefix is a lie,

My infix is what some people pledge to,

My suffix is to have less


What is the word?

• Can anyone make a riley riddle tag? – Duck Aug 12 '18 at 19:25
• Such a tag has already been created several times... and then removed. "Riddle" and "word" are apparently enough. – xhienne Aug 12 '18 at 19:33
• @Duck I originally suggested the idea in meta. But the community decided against the creation of this tag for the same reason mentioned by xhienne. – Riley Aug 12 '18 at 19:45
• Oh, ok. But so many people make them it should be more clarified. – Duck Aug 12 '18 at 21:00
• Ah, a riley tag – Duck Aug 12 '18 at 22:31

My very quick and unprocessed guess

Conflagration

My prefix is a lie,

'con' man

My infix is what some people pledge to,

I pledge allegiance to the 'Flag' of _____.

My suffix is to have less

You're left with less food, if you have to 'ration' it.
