    a white trash Redneck, and also a Progressive. Being raised in the backwoods of Northern MN on a farm without the electric or indoor plumbing gives me my white trash credentials. And my attitude gives me my Redneck credentials.

    The terms don't bother me, but hearing them used as pejoritives bothers me alot. And using those terms to mock poor working class whites, will not help to win them over to our side.

    Redneck is not synonymous with Republican.

    I know many poor white Rednecks who vote Democratic,
    right here in Texas.

    In fact I spent one Thanksgiving with a family just like that. We deep fried a turkey, ate at the picnic table on paper plates, & then had fun shooting off a potato gun. Country music blasting. It was best Thanksgiving ever.
