I like poking fun at my redneck roots, but when push comes to shove, rednecks are some of the finest, most upstanding and honest people on the globe, the sensible, well-grounded people who have helped make America great.
See my notes here on the real redneck philosophy and understand why I am proud of my redneck heritage.
See my notes on why being intolerant is an important duty for honorable people, especially a good redneck.
That’s despicable! A redneck is not afraid to fight injustice . . .
Comedians make fun of us with those “you might be a redneck if” jokes, but real redneck philosophy is quite different. A cousin just sent these to me, worth sharing:
You might be a redneck if: You say 'Merry Christmas' instead of ‘Happy Holidays.'
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: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God.'
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 and veterans with the great honor and respect.
You might be a redneck if: You detest countries that burn the American flag.
You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and insist that your kids to do the same.
