One of those vote splitter polls. Guthrie/Springsteen for the libtards/marxists.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)

Springstein’s song is so racist it should be banned.

Stringbean couldn't sing if his life depended on it. All he can do is yell...or talk over the music.

Otherwise his band is great.

Proud to be an American!

America, the Beautiful!

Those two and frankly all other patriotic songs bring tears to my eyes. I miss both my patriotic parents very much but part of me is glad they didn't live to see the destruction that Obama has wrought.

I wish I was in the land of cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land.
In Dixie Land where I was born in, early on a frosty mornin’, Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land.
Then I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! hooray!
In Dixie Land I’ll take my stand to live and die in Dixie,
Away, away, away down South in Dixie,
Away, away, away down South in Dixie.

With Obammy in power, talking about global treaties that dissolve the constitution and American independence, instituting socialism, going around congress to spend money and remake laws, making deals with Putin, using our military to put the Muslim Brotherhood in power and forcing troops into political correctness sex/race causes and voice, this is the song that I am feeling right now.

Toby Keith and some outstanding footage from our U.S. armed forces says it all ... and more!

For those of a USMC predilection: The Warrior's Song Both of these will make your heart pound in pride and you'll feel your blood surge if you have an ounce of patriotism in your body...

I'm not into the touchy-feely stuff, so I voted for “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”. I want to bring down the wrath of God on the American Left, Islamists, and Progressives (or whatever the devil they call themselves).

Of this list, I’m sorry that our national anthem isn’t #1. But Woody Guthrie on here?? C’mon. Certainly Lee Greenwood’s Proud to Be an American deserves a place here more than Guthrie’s. Obviously another liberal poll.

Agree, “God Bless America”, Kate Smith’s version, going back to WWII, is the standard. During the height of the Viet Nam War(demonstrations, riots, etc),1970, she came to a small bar/restaurant, by the courts, near NYC’s Chinatown that was always full of cops during lunch hour. She had heard that her song was played every day on the juke box. She came in, socialized and then sang the song. She was the ultimate patriot. A day I’ll never forget.
