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?

  • $\begingroup$ Such a tag has already been created several times... and then removed. "Riddle" and "word" are apparently enough. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @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. $\endgroup$

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.
