    Confessions of a Redneck

    Did you ever notice that when liberals start criticizing conservatives, they start out by telling us how intellectually inferior we are?

    Have you noticed how angry it makes them that anybody, as intellectually lacking as we are should have the audacity to question them and their superior intellect? They know what's good for us lesser beings and that if we weren't such a bunch of uncultured rednecks, we would see the error of our ways, we would just drive our pickup trucks, drink our beer, clean our guns and leave the weightier things like governing to them.

    It's called arrogance folks, it's called condescension, and it is pervasive in the Obama Administration. They are bound and determined that they are going to have their way whether "We The People" want it or not.

    Let me say at the outset of this statement that I very much believe in education, but what is happening in the universities of this nation these days has more to do with indoctrination than it does with education.

    Just because somebody has a college degree doesn't mean he or she has any practical sense. They could well be what Ronnie Van Zant used to call an "educated fool".

    The limits of my educational credentials would be a 12th grade diploma and I was lucky to get that. By the time I got into high school I was a lot more interested in fiddles and guitars than I was in diagramming a sentence or what some long dead poet had to say.

    But for the past several decades through the blessings and grace of Almighty God, I have kept at least twenty-five people gainfully and steadily employed. We have a health insurance program and a 401k plan for our employees.

    We have never missed a payday and I have watched many of my people literally grow up, get married, buy homes, have and educate children and in a few cases some of them have grandchildren.

    They abide by the law, they pay their taxes, they support their families, and are good citizens.

    As for me I am an unabashed Christian and claim no political party affiliation, I believe in voting for the person, not the party.

    I own guns and defend my right to do so.

    I don't think what I weigh is anybody's business but my own and if I'm overweight that's my problem, not the government's.

    I don't believe in manmade global warming and happen to think that the people who think cow flatulence is going to destroy the planet should check in at the nut house.

    I don't think it's any of anybody's business what kind of car I drive or how much mileage it gets as long as I don't ask you to help fill the gas tank.

    And if you want to drive some electric pregnant roller skate that will go all of a hundred miles before it has to be recharged, it's none of my business.

    I believe that the schools of this nation should first be committed to teaching the three "R's", reading, writing and arithmetic, as the kids are who are coming out of these schools are sorely lacking in them.

    I believe that the history of this country, and this world for that matter, should be taught as it truly was and not some agenda driven revisionist's version.

    I believe that the United States of America should be a sovereign nation and that our affiliation in the United Nations is a farce. The U.N., though a noble idea in theory, has turned into a toothless debating society with all the cards stacked against the U.S.

    I believe that we should stick with our friends and acknowledge our enemies. As in Israel is a friend; Iran is an enemy.

    I believe in charity but I don't believe in entitlements paid to people who are able to work for a living.

    I don't believe in a big central government as I don't believe there are that many totally trustworthy people available to run it and not be seduced by the power.

    I believe that true marriage can only exist between a man and a woman and I need no other authority than the Holy Bible to prove that I'm right.

    I believe that with a few notable exceptions, the Congress of the United States has turned into a body of political prostitutes who sell their integrity and their honor to get more and more power over the people they are sworn to serve.

    I have no faith whatsoever that the financial programs the President and Congress have passed will do anything to pull America out of this slump we are experiencing and I believe that the national debt we are acquiring will be a two thousand pound albatross around America's neck for generations to come.

    I believe we are headed for inflation like we've never seen it before.

    I believe that as things deteriorate Obama and the Congress will become more and more desperate and try to introduce even more dangerous measures. It is just my hope that by that time the American people will wake up to the point to say enough is enough and elect some fiscally responsible people.

    I don't believe there can be any such thing as a "jobless recovery" and actually think the two words are a contradiction in terms.

    I believe that the proposed health care program is not about health care but just another blatant "hurry up" attempt to gain more control by a president who sees his poll numbers sinking.

    I believe that if the government had announced an across the board tax cut for individuals and businesses for the period of one year that this recession would be all but over by now.

    That would have worked in a couple of ways. First of all, the government would only have had to borrow the money to sustain itself during the tax hiatus and they wouldn't have had to go to foreign countries to sell treasury bonds, the people of this country would have bought them.

    The economy of America would have started rebounding the next time workers received a paycheck and the resulting domino effect would have taken off like a freight train.

    I believe that when America does come out of this slump it will be in spite of the government actions, not because of it.

    And a few personal notes to you liberals who are kind enough to slum your way through our humble little column…

    I do own a pickup truck, occasionally chew tobacco, love NASCAR and football games, guns and large mouth bass fishing.

    I love rednecks and if I was in a pinch I'd rather have one good honest redneck on my side that a whole gaggle of college professors.

    What do you think?

    Pray for our troops, and for our country

    God Bless America

    Sounds like a smart man to me. Seen him in concert many times. He really puts on a good show. I like him politically now.

    A man after my own heart. I could not find one thing that I would disagree with.

    I think you're right about the older generation (WWII) generation.

    My favorite part of this.... It's what makes up the life blood of this country, small business owners. It puts their lives in perspective. Many of them struggle to survive with their families as much as the rest of us. I know... I've watched my bosses struggle through lean times in their business as well as my dad's own business. Thank God they keep pressing on.
