Well, after reading your post, I guess the right doesn't have a monopoly on being loony. In fact, as a moderate, slightly to left on Tuesday, slightly to right on Wednesday (or wishy washy all days of the week), you've inspired me to celebrate the 4th this year with gusto. Uhhh, bBQ, beer, panama hat, shorts, ... uhhh ... that's the same thing I did last year. Oh Well, at least I'll have an attitude about it this year.

I'll join Mellow Fellow - LOL! Lived out of the US for a number of years - not left or right - but definately think as crazy as this "family" is it is the best country in the world to live in....I'll celebrate my freedom to celebrate as a moderate!!

Wow, such anger towards a parade that is found to have a mere 1-2% impact on a child under 18. Seriously "!", you need to relax and enjoy the fourth without even thinking about politics...
The three key findings of those attending July 4th celebrations:
•When done before the age of 18, it increases the likelihood of a youth identifying as a Republican by at least 2 percent.
•It raises the likelihood that parade watchers will vote for a Republican candidate by 4 percent.
•It boosts the likelihood a reveler will vote by about 1 percent and increases the chances they'll make a political contribution by 3 percent.
