Get this straight: if you’re living in America right now, you’re a descendant of a criminal, a kidnapping victim, or a bum—possibly all three.
There are no descendants of royalty in America. Royalty doesn’t leave home.
Not only was a significant bulk of the criminal element being relocated in one fell swoop, but also revenue was generated as these louts ran roughshod all over the New World trading fur, making a mess and diminishing natural resources.
After a very short period of time (surprise!), these “settlers” don’t even wanna pay taxes no more.
What in the world were the Brits expecting? The “settlers” were, after all, criminals.
Since history is told by the winners, an act that had all the moralist integrity of a of a prison riot, got grandly renamed “The American Revolution” and the “settlers” formed their own government with liberty and slavery for all.
The only possible analogy for this would be if you owned a summer home and you allowed someone else to live in it for a while.
Eventually, as the bills started pouring in, you notice that the cable, gas and electric on your summer home have skyrocketed and you decide to go out to the summer home to clear things up.
When you get there, you’re Debo’d by ignoramuses that tell you not only is the summer home not yours anymore—it’s theirs—but also the bills? You can pay those.
So what does all that have to do with the current Tea Party Patriots? Well, it’s like this: not even the mafia is dumb enough to go around calling itself “The Mafia”.
However when a group is inane enough to name itself directly after another group, one must logically assume that the intentions of the new group are the same as those of the old group.
The intent of the original Boston Tea Party was to foster the climate necessary for a bloody insurrection.
And we’d all be fools to think that intent of this current incarnation is any different.
