15% of Americans Think We Should Replace the National Anthem!
This really boils my blood!!!
Are there REALLY this many CHRISTINA AGUILERA sympathizers out there? Come on. After Christina's problem with the lyrics to "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl, Rasmussen Reports ran a nationwide telephone survey about the national anthem. And 15% of people said they think we should CHANGE the anthem. Those 15% believe that we should change it to a different patriotic song. (????) 76% say the anthem is fine the way it is. 82% of adults said they know every word to the national anthem. 9% say they don't. Another 9% said they're not sure. which . . . um . . . I'm thinking means that they don't.
SO! To bring the small group of people out there up to speed, HERE are all the words to the National Anthem!
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
