Reflections on the 4th of July (I Won't be Celebrating American Tyranny)

Americans started a Revolution in 1776 on a British Stamp Act tax so puny that no one in America today would even notice the tax. The Declaration of Independence is an indictment against King George because of his taxation policies. The language contained in our historical Declaration of Independence aptly describes the tax tyranny Americans experience today as inflicted upon them by their state and federal governments.

Excerpts from the Declaration of Independence on taxes and other acts of tyranny:

“..when a long train of abuses and usurpations…evinces a design to reduce them…under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government.”

“He has made judges dependent on his Will alone”

 “He has erected a multitude of New Offices and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”

“He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their acts of pretended Legislation”

“For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent”

“He has…..destroyed the lives of our people.”

 “A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people”.

The above indictment and crimes supposedly committed by King George are indeed minor misdemeanors when compared with the high crimes of the evil government that lords over us today.

As the government confiscates more and more of earned income from those who produce to fund its massive redistributionist schemes, nonstop wars, pork and fascist corporate welfare state,  Americans  keeps sinking further into poverty and misery.

Government is out of control, corrupt and unaccountable at both the federal and state level. Government power grabs come at the expense of personal liberty and the prosperity of its citizens. Government monetary and fiscal incompetence are robbing us blind. 

Even worse, a nation once renowned for its extraordinary civil liberties is being churned into a Nazi style police state.

Democrats and Republicans are notoriously bipartisan when it comes to hacking away at civil liberties and economic liberties. Once a proud, strong and wealthy creditor nation, American is now a pathetic debtor nation marching toward extinction.

America is at a critical intersection in its history – we either reject the almighty state as the cornucopia of plenty and we demand our constitutional liberty or we just surrender to totalitarian slavery.
