Reminder

16 Apr

“He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.”

“He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.”

“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.”

“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. 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.”

A Revolution began over these issues.  Over an out-of-control government.  A government just like what exists in the United States today.  Will the outcome be any different this time?  I doubt it.

    Yes, as you point out those same words, each sentence, would apply to our situation today.
