Nothing could be farther from the truth. There are many of we Manual labor red neck liberals. But we aren’t too uninformed to realize that more formal education correlates to more earning power. We had no problem working multiple jobs so our kids could get college degrees. That’s the world we live in now. The good paying jobs for just HS educated are harder to come by. If you think we should be proud, uneducated Americans trying to compete on the world stage for jobs, that’s not how we feel. America has the greatest collection of universities in the world too. Be proud of that as well.
