Would you have been with the unarmed plantation slaves picking cotton while those same white men fought for the rights of other land-owning white men to pay less taxes and run the government while oppressing non-christians and non-whites?

The underlying implications of this "debate" are hypocritical and null when you realize the implications of the fact that most of them were only fighting for the independence and rights of colonial white christendom.

those fucks wouldn't have represented my interests any more than the crown, and at least the crown was a whole ocean away.

Cool. So when the government oversteps its bounds and begins overtaxing the people:

1)You'll arm yourself with a firearm.

2)You'll attack the government with force.

3)You'll tell them to shove their tax up their ass and tell them to tax Congress members first? I'm proud of you Con. You've grown.

Hello bront:

When government oversteps its bounds, I'm right there. Like when they restrict voting rights.. But, taxing the people for the benefit of the people, ISN'T overstepping anything.. In fact, that's exactly what taxes are for..

Back in the 50's, when EVERYBODY was thriving, when ONE person could work and support his whole family, when ANYBODY could buy a house, when there were NO homeless people, the tax on the rich was 97%..

Bill Gates is worth $126,000,000,000. Do you know how much that is??? Should he wake up one morning and decide that he'd like to spend a million dollars every day, it would take him 345 years to spend it.. That's what 10 aircraft carriers cost. Count 'em TEN... Would it bother me if he and his friends had to pitch in a little more??? Nahhh..

Look.. I have nothing against the wealthy.. But, OBSCENE wealth is OBSCENE.

My lifelong favor for the ballot box over the Musket would have been thwarted as I would have been denied my preferred alternative of voting.

So, the state of ''no taxation without representation'' would have had to be achieved with the use of The Musket.

The reason for the BTP was because the colonists had no vote on the situation. They wanted an expansion of their voting rights. The tax had actually been lowered before the BTP. So if you would have joined the BTP, you actually have a chance in the present by fighting for the expansion of voting rights today. Also, They may have been armed and they have been white but they disguised themselves as Native Americans and they were probably not all christian.
