trump crowdDonald Trump has run a masterful campaign.  No matter what he has said, no matter who he has insulted, his legions of supporters have continued to support him.

 

Now, however, he is going head to head, perhaps the most conservative candidate in the crowd, Ted Cruz, and so his conservative Christian and creds are taking a heat.

This from ABC news

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech.
