We know the United States wasn’t founded on Christianity, in any sense of the word. You know what it was founded on? Beer.
George Washington famously brewed it. James Madison purportedly sought to create a cabinet-level Secretary of Beer. And Franklin Delano Roosevelt helped make it legal to produce and sell (again) by championing legislation repealing Prohibition. Upon signing the bill, he reportedly said, “I think this would be a good time for a beer.”
God damned good thinking on their part I’d say.Obama brews his own as well, you can get the recipe here. Oddly enough, there may be some correlation between your drink of choice, and your political leanings.
Those who drink Sam Adams, the patriot of beers, are more likely to vote Republican. They’re also more likely to vote than those who drink, say, Natural Light.
Heineken fans are more likely to be Democrats than any other beer drinkers. But they aren’t a particularly strong voting block. Heineken drinkers turn out at the polls to vote at relatively low levels….Budweiser drinkers skew further toward Democrats than Bud Light drinkers…The voters who skew most Democratic while maintaining a high level of turnout drink Molson.
Sweet golly, is there a graph?
One can only hope the bars around Skepticon know about this research.
Are you an outlier, or do you fit the data?
