May be it’s time for another Revolution. We are taxed to death, taxation with representation, Our 1st and 2nd Amendments are under attack. Riots are organized by by our own Government, and Colleges to stop Trump from running for President. Money people want this to happen, becasue they make billions of dollars while we the people suffer. our Government only cares about Illegals, Muslims and gives away billions of dollars to ISIS, Al-Qaeda, and all the enemies of the United States of America. And our Government is getting our troops killed for nothing. Our Armed forces belong to the UN.For the last 60 odd years we have been involved in “No Win Wars” and have lost thousands of young men and women, for nothing. Now our country is making the Viet Cong rich by sending factors over there and making goods that sell here in the USA.
Notes on the revolutionary war:
Many of the Colonists accepted as inevitable that they would have to start paying taxes to help pay for the cost of defending the colonies. It was, however, the method these taxes were imposed that raised anger in the colonies. The fact Colonists were not consulted about the taxes and the fact that the new taxes interfered with the ability of Colonists to trade.
It is evidently contrary to the first principles of reason, that supreme unlimited power should be in the hands of one man. It is the greatest “idolatry, begotten by flattery, on the body of pride”, that could induce one to think that a single mortal should be able to hold so great a power, if ever so well inclined. Hence the origin of deifying princes: It was from the trick of gulling the vulgar into a belief that their tryants were omniscient, and that it was therefore right, that they should be considered as omnipotent. Hence the Dii majorum et minorum gentium; the great, the monarchical, the little Provincial subordinate and subaltern gods, demigods, and semidemi-gods, ancient and modern. Thus deities of all kinds were multiplied and increased in abundance; for every devil incarnate, who could enslave a people, acquired a title to divinity; and thus the “rabble of the skies” was made up of locusts and caterpillars; lions, tygers and harpies; and other devourers translated from plaguing the earth!3
The form of government is by nature and by right so far left to the individuals of each society, that they may alter it from a simple democracy or government of all over all, to any other form they please. Such alteration may and ought to be made by express compact: But how seldom this right has been asserted, history will abundantly show. For once that it has been fairly settled by compact; fraud force or accident have determined it an hundred times. As the people have gained upon tyrants, these have been obliged to relax, only till a fairer opportunity has put it in their power to encroach again.
If those great powers are both lodged in the hands of one man, the government is a simple Monarchy, commonly, though falsly called absolute, if by that term is meant a right to do as one pleases.–Sic volo, sic jubeo, stet pro ratione voluntas, belongs not of right to any mortal man.
The Quartering Act 1765
In 1765 the British further angered the colonist by passing the Quartering Act.Ê The act forced American colonist to house and feed British forces who were serving in North America.Ê The act further inflamed tensions between the colonist and the British.Ê The colonist were angered at having their homes forced open.Ê The subsequent close contact with British soldiers did not engender good feelings between the sides.from Britain dropped almost in half.
Stamp Tax Imposed
|The Revenue Act of 1764 did not bring in enough money to help pay the cost of defending the colonies. The British looked for additional sources of taxation. Prime Minister Grenville supported the imposition of the a stamp tax. Colonial representatives tried to convince Grenville that the tax was a bad idea. Grenville insisted in having the new taxes imposed and presented them for approval to the parliament. The parliament approved the tax in February 1765 More.|

Sons of Liberty Organized-1765
When word of the enactment of the Stamp Tax spread through the colonies protest began In Boston riots developed directed against both Royal officials and anyone who agreed to distribute the stamps. The mob directed its anger at Andrew Oliver who had agreed to be an agent of the stamp tax. They hung him in effigy, and threatened him if he did not resign which he did.
The rioting quickly spread to other colonies. Throughout the colonies the agents for the stamp tax were forced to resign. Behind much of the rioting was a new organization that had been founded to defend the liberties of the colonist.
