    You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.

    You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
    You treat Viet Nam vets with great respect, and always have.

    You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
    You've never burned an American flag.

    You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
    You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

    You might be a TRUE AMERICAN if:
    You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You've never protested about seeing a School promote Muslim-Awareness Week, yet sued to force removal the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You say "Winter Festival." instead of "Christmasl."

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You get offended when a Christian prays, unless that person claims to be gay.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You Sue a Ballpark for discriminating against the disabled, when the PA announcer asks everyone to stand when they play the National Anthem.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You treat Viet Nam vets worse than those who held them captive.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You've burned an American flag, but were offended at somebody burning a MEXICAN Flag.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so via a prepared statement from party-officials, but ONLY when the Media is there with cameras and microphones.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You respect your kids more than your spouse.

    You might be a TRUE LIBERAL if:
    You'd like to to pass legislation which would require your friend to give you his last $.73. He 'had' a dollar, but thanks to your new legislation, the state took $.27 for the "General Fund"

    It's kind of a bummer as the world Liberal has changed over the years - just like the word Gay - it has been bastardized:

    Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.
    Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

    Liberal Of, designating, or characteristic of a political party founded on or associated with principles of social and political liberalism, especially in Great Britain, Canada, and the United States.

    Tending to give freely; generous: a liberal benefactor.

    Not strict or literal; loose or approximate: a liberal translation.

    And here I was thinking you were a true American if you were either born in the country or met the requirements for citizenship and took an oath of loyalty. Silly me.

    In order to be a TRUE AMERICAN, are all those required? Or just some?

    So, does that mean I'm not a true American?
