Usually, I will post start of article, then a link to read rest.....I put a paragraph from about midway, just in case you decide not to read entire post.....


The historical event is worth a few minutes of recollection as we trudge toward 2014 with an increasingly apparent devolution of freedom in America. After all, in the days of our founding, a simple tax on our breakfast beverage resulted in massive protests in Boston Harbor – and ultimately a few gunshots. Our founders were tired of being ruled by a body of “representatives” hundreds of miles away. They were fed up with the dictatorial nature of King George’s executive action, and disregard for individual property rights. Imagine living in a land where one man in the executive branch could unilaterally alter law… It’s not that hard to imagine, is it?

Sure, King George never shoved universal healthcare down the throats of our Patriot founders; but he did enact taxes, regulation, and tariffs, with little more than a stroke of a pen. (No word, yet, on how often he decided to play golf.)
