The important Iowa vote
    The Republican caucus vote in Iowa can sometimes make or break a candidate's bid for his or her party’s presidential nomination.  While it’s not the end-all for candidates, the vote gives an indication of who the front-runners are in the early stages of the campaign.

    The Iowa Caucus is tentatively scheduled for February 1, 2016, so there is still plenty of campaigning ahead for the presidential wannabes.
    Here is the latest poll, conducted last week by KBUR Radio of Burlington, Iowa:
    Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker – 18%.
    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – 12%.
    Kentucky U.S. Sen. Rand Paul – 10%.
    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee – 10%.
    Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio – 9%.
    Texas U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz – 8%.
    Billionaire Donald Trump – 7%.
    Retired Neurosurgeon Ben Carson – 5%.
    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie – 5%.
    Former PA U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum – 4%.
    Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry – 4%.
    Former HP CEO Carly Fiorina – 3%.
    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – 2%.
    Ohio Gov. John Kasich – 1%.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

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.
