    IT HAS TO A TREMENDOUS BURDEN .........

    I ORDERED THIS BOOK A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO AND READ IT, CONTRARY TO ALL OF MR. GRAHAMS BELEIFS WHITE SOUTHERN MALES CAN AND DO READ ( BEYOND BATHROOM STALL WALLS ). I DELIBERATED QUITE SOME TIME AS WETHER TO LEAVE A REPLY BUT I GUESS THE IGNORANT SELF PROCLAIMED 'REDNECK' GOT THE BEST OF ME. I GUESS WE ARE THE ONLY SOCIALLY UNPROTECTED CLASS OF PEOPLE LEFT BUT THAT'S OK WE CAN TAKE IT. BUT I WOULD SAY TO A DEGREE IT IS FLATTERING THAT A BUNCH OF INBRED, IGNORANT DEGENERANTS SHOULD HAVE THE ABILITY TO INFLUENCE MORE REFINED, INTELLIGENT, AND HIGHER LEARNED, FOR THE DOWN FALL OF THIS ONCE GREAT COUNTRY. I GREW UP IN A SMALL TOWN ( WAGENER, SC )A FEW MILES FROM PELION WHICH IS THE HOMETOWN OF MR. GRAHAM. ALTHOUGH I NEVER HAD THE OPPOTUNITY TO DIRECTLY ACQUAINT MYSELF WITH MR. GRAHAM THERE ARE SOME MUTUAL ACQUAINTANCES OF OURS. AS A MEMBER OF THE AREA I HAD A FIRST HAND VIEW OF THE COMMUNITY MR. GRAHAM HAS SUCH A MYSTERIOUS DISTAIN FOR, AND IT IS A MYSTERY TO ME WHY HE FEELS THIS WAY. I FIND THE SOUTH AND PARTICUALLY THIS AREA TO BE COMPRISED OF HONEST, COMPASSIONATE, HARD WORKING, SALT OF THE EARTH PEOPLE ( AND YES ALL US DO NOT HAVE THE COVETED DEGREE IN MUSIC FROM ORAL ROBERTS UNIVERSITY ). BUT THAT IS OK WE WILL MANAGE TO SURVIVE SOME WAY. IT HAS TO BE A TREMENDOUS BURDEN..... TO BE BRILLIANT AND TO BE SURROUNDED BY A WORLD OF ' REDNECKS '.

    Southen Victory

    Michael Graham has definetley taken a head on approach at southern versus northern. I do agree with him that the south really has won the war in the end becauses their ideas on racism, education, religion, and life have now taken over most of America. He also hits the nail on the head when he describes all of the racial issues in our world. He has made a statement that he and many others believe to be true.If you don't want to be considered different, then you shouldn't make your image towards others different because of your race. I have to agree with him that many southerners are undereducated and have their own way of life. Contrary to Michael's belief of why they are so 'dumb,' I believe that they are this way because that has been the everlasting stereotype of a southerner, and nobody has taken a stand for it to be anything else. I also believe that 'northerners' are not taking advantage of the fact that they won the civil war and gained all the rights they were making that our ancestors died to earn. They could be bettering education everywhere, and eliminating racism, yet some still pay way to mush money for their children to go to an all white school, to avoid being in contact with other races. I believe that Michael also has the fact that anyone who still acts racist and cannot educate each other properly, gets drunk without remorse or is related to half the county, is technically a southerner.

    The South's Gonna Do It Again(albeit, this time, liberal and republican).

    Graham writes a manifesto for all of us Southerners who are proud of our heritage, but, as he states, 'not at the insistence of a bunch of rednecks.' He applies personal experience both culturally and politically which can actually serve to educate all Americans on the present state of this country and where we are heading. He identifies both the absurdity of our region and its ignorance, as well as the absurdity of special interest and self-important groups which seem to consider their cause of greater importance that the national welfare. Whether or not the reader is southern or republican, heterosexual or male, they can appreciate his candor and his intimations regarding what is good for America and what is not.

    Excellent Read, Opens your eyes to where we really are as a civilized country!

    Michael Graham has way with words that keeps you wanting more whether you agree with his point of view or not. Due to a colourful coming of age Michael's point of view is well delivered in a witty fashion that cuts to the bone. If we can get everyone to read this our world will be a much better place.

    America - the Redneck Nation

    This book is great. It reminds me of P.J.O'Rourke's best. The author is a stand-up comic, and GOP advisor, from South Carolina. This book is at once an indictment of the South (nepotism, NASCAR, fire and brimstone religion, and irrationality), but also defends the South to a degree, and basically says that the North has taken on many of the South's bad ideas (like viewing people primarily based on their race, not on their character). In a section on religion, the author says, "The North believes in Darwin [science], the South believes in Satan". When I see the government promoting race-based admissions and TV programs based on sheer irrationality, and I see nepotism and corruption at work, and NASCAR as the number one spectator sport in America, and irrationality, and dumbing-down, and fast food, and weird mysticism, I know that America is "A Redneck Nation".
