Recently a Harvard University study found some interesting stats regarding who goes to Independence Day Parades.
“Democratic political candidates can skip this weekend’s July 4th parades. A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day,” said Paul Bedard of US News and World Reports.
Does anyone believe this? I hope not. When have our political party views become so different that we can’t go to a parade without knowing our neighbors political views.
Are we to believe those Floats and Little League Ball Players are all from the same political party.
The truth is – that is nonsense. As you read deeper into the article, it becomes clear that it is a statistical dead heat and we all find joy at 4th of July Parades.
Let’s celebrate our Independence for the 235th year and find common elements to bring us together. A 4th of July Parade is one of those elements. I’ll see you there.
