You Know You're Part of The Forgotten Street If ...
Just what do we mean by
The Forgotten Street
? How do you identify with it? Well, we have a little test for you. It's simple to take.
You know you are part of The Forgotten Street if ...
If you get a lump in your throat and you put your hand over your heart when you hear the Star-Spangled Banner;
If you believe we have to
the war on terror and pull together as Americans to make that happen;
If you know that the secular-progressives can wreck America with their belief that our country is a source of trouble in the world, not its salvation;
If you know in your heart that our Founding Fathers were inspired by God to create our democratic republic as a beacon for freedom for the world;
If you ask other people to pray for you in times of trouble;
If you want your President to be an American and not a "citizen of the world";
If you think the ACLU poses a dangerous threat to our traditional values, our American heritage and the concept of majority rule;
If you believe that your word is your bond and that promises are meant to be kept;
If you know that hard work and personal responsibility are the keys to true success;
If you detest negative political ads that insult your intelligence;
If you call it a "Christmas tree" instead of a "holiday tree," and believe using "Merry Christmas" as a greeting means no offense to other religions;
If you love the local Fourth of July parade and help the kids decorate their bikes;
If you believe government has a role in protecting those who cannot protect themselves, such as the elderly, the disabled, young children and the unborn;
If you recite the Pledge of Allegiance at the local Rotary Club or Chamber of Commerce meeting
If you admire the good work the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts do for our youth;
If you find public displays of profanity unacceptable, not forms of free speech;
If you show respect for others by addressing them as "sir" or "mam;"
If you say "thank you" when someone holds a door open for you;
If you think that even with so many more channels of television, there is less and less worth watching;
If you share Ronald Reagan's belief that "freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction."
