    I hear a lot of BS here from cons about freedom and liberties they never fought for or tried to protect (which is ok), so I would like to know if you all are Real Americans, what makes you think so? There are a lot of ways to show you are a real American. What have you done to show you are a real American? How do you show other people, say foreigners to America how to be real Americans and what should they respect about America.

    This is NOT meant to be a Tit-4-Tat game, just what do you do to be part of our great country. Have you ever done a heroic act? Worked for the good of the public in some capacity? This is your moment to shine and ourr moment to be greatful for being here and thank you for whatever you have done.:eusa_angel:

    Can you site some "BS" you've heard "around here" about freedom and liberties. "Real
    Americans" would like to know just what your talking about.:smoke:

    Could you name a few?

    I pay taxes, I show "other people" the checks I send to the different goverment agencies.
    As to what a foreigner should "respect" about America, I certainly couldn't say, and if they
    were to ask me, well, I'd just ask them what they respect about their country.

    I served during the Vietnam war, 1965 thru 1968. I served on our local school board, and as I said above, I've paid taxes.

    No thanks is needed.:eusa_hand:

    If you are born here, if you are a citizen, you are a real American. What you do with it or fail to do with it is on you.

    I hear a lot of BS about 'taking care' of the people, mainly from lefties who think they have a right to decide what's 'best' for everyone.... mainly from idiots like the OP.

    If you were born here, or are a naturalized citizen, then you are a 'real American'. Being a Real American, however, doesn't make anyone a Real Smart American... that takes a little individual effort. I find, generally, that's where many Americans fail.

    Self-interest is what has elevated American society above most others in the world.

    As a great political philosopher once said "There are no leftist Americans."

    Hmmmm.....good question!!

    1) I was born in the USA.

    2) My wife and I pay more in taxes than a lot of people make.

    3) We gladly pay taxes because we care about doing our part to make this nation great and it shows that we have good jobs that enable us to do it.

    3) I ran for and was elected to public office (re-elected 3 times).

    4) I help out at a local shelter.

    5) I only drive American brand automobiles.

    6) I served on the local fire department.

    7) I speak out when I feel something is wrong.

    I could go on but these are some of the items I am doing in my part of being a member of this great nation and a real American. I also thank God for the opportunities I have and try to pay it back by doing all that I can and/or is asked of me.
