6.25% Cherokee
25% German

The rest is technically British, but from ~400 years ago.  According to some of my relatives, my roots are "Southern" rather than "American".  My mom's family came over from Germany after WW1, and settled in the area where I currently live.  My dad's family settled in Jamestown, VA in the early 1600s, moved progressively further south as the decades went by, settled in Mississippi, came back to Virginia after the Civil War, and went back to Mississippi.  My dad's grandparents and parents moved up to Virginia and started a lumber farm and mill, which his parents took over.  His dad died of sudden heart failure, and his mom couldn't keep the company going by herself, so she sold it, took the kids, and moved to the first town they stopped in, which was Harrisonburg, where I live now.

Both of my grandmas are hard-core into genealogy, so I heard all about this stuff when I was a kid.  My history teachers loved me :-P

Patriotism = Blind obediance to a corrupt power.

There is nothing blind about my Patriotism. I'm proud of everything achieved by Britain and of the principals and spirit under which it exists. I may not like Tony Blair, but I still love my country enough to fight and die for it.
I could look back and say "oh technically nobody in Britain is actually a 'true' Brit, as the Ancient Britons were almost wiped out by the Saxons yadda yadda yadda..." but I don't.

Nationality is in the soul not in the blood.

I wish I was British ;-; If I was British then I WOULD be patriotic. I think America should have stayed under the monarchy.

If nationality is in the soul and not the blood, THEN I MUST BE AUSTRALIAN! G'DAY MATE! Nah, I'd be French.

My scottish relatives came here at the time of the pilgrims and some of them still live up in boston. O,o;;; But still nothing wrong with pride in your own nationality if you have a long line of family that can be traced back hundereds of years. I can say I'm proud to be hungarian even though the country is still a bunch of filthy people. But thats just me. =/

Meh, monarchies are somewhat over-rated. The Queen doesn't seem to do much, and the royalty dont make the major decisions of the country anymore, its ol' Creepy-Grin we're stuck with now! Still, I'm not sure, but I think the Queen has quite a few powers under her belt, above all the power to give the country at least a little sense of unity, which is something the world needs a lot more of.

Would we be better off with a single ruler, no questions asked? Or is the present democratic system better? Because sometimes, no matter what country you're from, it can seem like an "idiots voting for idiots" scheme. The problem is, Democracy is basically four wolves and a lamb voting over lunch. That poor lamb is never going to get what he wants, even if he has quite a few good ideas.

o_O Woops *drifting closer to topic*

Yay Aztecs! My family are somewhat boring, since my entire known close family reside in this very town, and have for several generations! As far as I can see I'm the only "weird" one amongst them. All pretty happy to sit there and accept their lives as they are. Am I the only one that wants to leave!?

I got to go on a Police Ride-Along with a German Shepherd in the back seat...

He chased this one guy down... It was hilarious... I thought he was going to kill him...

HAH! THAT'LL TEACH 'EM!

But seriously, it makes me mad that they want you to speak Spanish down here if you want a good job. I say, if they can't speak English, they should go back to where they came from! I shouldn't have to learn Spanish just because they don't want to learn English.

When your sworn into the Army, your sworn to the Queen. I believe the monarch has a lot of powers, like I think the mobilisation of Military has to be approved by the Queen. What the country really needs is another Churchill or Thatcher who will sort the country out and tell the European Union where they can shove their Euro... :fox-:P:

I agree with the language thing, people can't immegrate to a country and expect folk to speak their own language. If you wanna become British, you should have to adapt to suit our culture not the other way round.

Funny.  It was preferable if someone was bilingual because of the common amount of people from "Across the border."  Nite is hispanic, so I learn it from him and his parents.

Anyways...I dunno the whole percentage thing.

Half White, Half Lebanese, have some Irish in me
Seven years of age is he and already in bloody war
His eyes do not turn away from all that death and gore
Father Dracul and brother Mircea are riding by his side
Proud he is of his warrior father, no matter he lied!
