Could someone PLEASE tell me what is different about the American political environment today compared to what it was like in 1776?
In 1776 the Americans were being heavily taxed by a tyrannical king from a far away land that could care less about his subjects here in America. This king wasn’t an American in any sense of the word. They were being taxed without any representation. They had virtually no rights and the few they had, could be revoked when the king saw fit. He taxed them in order to pay for his countless wars in countless countries.
The people were in a state of rebellion or revolution against their government. The people were oppressed at every turn. The people felt betrayed by their government.
The king could write anything he wanted into law without any regard to what was fair, just, logical or even what was considered legal by his subjects. The king could spend his subjects’ money as it was his own. The king’s “courts” only ruled according to his wishes. The king controlled all the law enforcement so he enforced only those laws he saw fit to enforce.
America was split in two with a virtual two party system, where one group wanted freedom and a country run of the people, by the people and for the people. The other wanted to bow to the will of their king even if it sucked the life out of America.
So I ask again, what is so different about today?-BJMJr
