I am an American. (Author Unknown)

I believe the money I make belongs to me and my family, not some Liberal governmental functionary be it Democratic or Republican!
I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer, it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything.

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac, do it in English.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and whoever canceled Jerry Springer.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, or was a slave, I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks and neither have you! So, shut up already.

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country! This is AMERICA .

If you were born here and don't like it you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you.

I want to know which church is it exactly where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution. Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think they have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my drivers license. I think it's good..... And I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money.

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause.

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents.

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think.Calling an Illegal Immigrant an 'Undocumented Alien' Is like calling a Drug Pusher an 'Unliscensed Pharmacist'

I strongly believe the American military is the strongest in the world, because of the brave and honorable men and women, who proudly serve.

I think we can not thank our veterans enough. I also think it should be the goal of all, appreciative Americans to make sure these men and women get the care and benefits they earned.

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA !

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

A poem? C'mon... a list, maybe, but a poem this is not. Weird.

I don't think it makes you a good or a bad American... just indifferent and self-serving.

That made me laugh... nobody, dude...nobody. That "rule" went out so long ago that when Frost used rhyme it was avant-garde and retro.

I wouldn't call you a bad american, just a conservative American. I do agree with most of your sentiments. I think a lot of Americans do. The way this country is going today is sickening. American was founded on a lot of your sentiments.

Oh yeah, AMEN on Jesse Jackson (from an African-American.)

Conservatives seem to have a heavier presence in polling on this forum and discussion for that matter... is it safe to say that is accurate population statistics or no?

BTW, that list is me 100%
