Sean you sound like a liberal jackass. Being patriotic and loving our country is NOT redneck, it's American. Modern liberalism is anti-American and if taken to it's logical conclusion it ends up in communism at worst socialism at best, either way it's a huge power grab by the federal government which means less freedom for you. You should be proud to be an American because you live in a free society. If you want to know what liberalism leads to try living in Russa, China, or even Europe.
