You Might Be A Redneck

I read this from Musings or a Vast Right-Winger and thought you would enjoy it too!

We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It's time to take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family, country and God. If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd choose a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up.
Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's what rednecks are made of. I hope I am one of those. If you feel the same, pass this on to your redneck friends. Ya'll know who ya’ll are.

You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God.'

You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a redneck if: You still say ' Christmas' instead of 'Winter Festival.'

You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when someone prays.

You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.

You might be a redneck if: You treat our armed forces veterans with great respect, and always have.

You might be a redneck if: You've never burned an American flag, nor intend to.

You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and raised your kids to do the same.

You might be a redneck if: You'd give your last dollar to a friend.

If you got this email from me, it is because I believe that you, like me, have just enough Red Neck in you to have the same beliefs as those talked about in this email.

God Bless the USA! Keep the fire burning, redneck friend.

Oh I don't think you have to be a redneck to score highly on that little test. I could say yes to all apart from the one about the National Anthem ...... and that's only because I'm not an American!!

Now I've been accused of being everything from a "liberal" to a "socialist" to a "commie" ..... and I nearly pass the redneck test !!!???!!!.... so I guess it's not so robust ;o)

Hey, Penny, I don't know if NWKS is considered redneck territory, but I'm one too!

CambridgeLady, so glad you could drop by. I guess if there is only one that you missed, you still pass the test!

It is really, all about our freedoms, and I think too many Americans take them for granted, and won't even realize they are gone, until they are gone!
