    Good point. The idea to allow people to have the right to bear arms confused people. They only meant that Americans have the right to keep their arms attached to their bodies not get guns :p

    Our Founding Fathers set forth to create a government ruled by the people (land-owning white males at the time). Little did they know that people would be too lazy to rules themselves and would become content to let a bunch of sleazy used car salesmen corruptly run their country as long as they just leave us alone.

    eggmaster, they were wrong about being ruled by a tyrant. Because, you know, they weren`t.

    Tyrant can mean one of two things: an unfair and dictatorial monarch, or a monarch who seized the throne by force. Neither of those were true.

    And wrong to rebel? When is it NOT wrong to rebel? Legally, it`s always wrong to rebel, therefore someone will always consider it wrong.

    Do they seriosuly not teach why America became indepent, in America yet?

    Our version: Americans started war with the French canadians. British fought for america... Won. Sold cheap tea to get some money back cos of expensive war. Tea smugglers threw the cheap legal tea in water. Britian try to give back land taken during that french canadain war (some owned by G.washington funnily enough) and with a load of propagander from middle class americans, there was a rebellion.

    Every day I celebrate the fact that I`m an Oregonian. On independence day I ponder the fact that England isn`t significantly farther away from the Eastern Seaboard of the US than Washington D.C. is from where I live on the West Coast. I also consider the fact that I didn`t elect the senior officers of any of the corporations who padded the campaign funds of any of the elected officals for whom I voted.

    Tenty: you are an idiot. Do they not yet teach European History in Europe? Our version. The Europeans had another one of their world wars with Great Britain and Prussia on one side and France (who started the damn thing in 1756), Austria, and Russia on the other. It was a war that included British and French interests in the Americas as well as in India and Africa and, of course, Europe itself. After the British won they decided to have the Americans foot the bill for Canada (fair enough) through taxes. That wasn`t the problem. The problem was that the Americans considered themselves to be British citizens (those upstarts!) and therefore entitled to representation in Parliament like the guys back in England and shouldn`t be taxed without their consent. (Something William Pitt, the guy who practially made the British Empire, totally agreed with.) William

    "Slavery: Lincoln abolished it because he needed more troops, not because he had any serious views on its evilness."

    Lincoln never abolished slavery. He said that in all states rebelling, slaves should be set free. He had absolutely no power over the rebelling states. He wanted to keep the border states in the Union.

    Siyanor: In what sense is he correct? At the time of the French and Indian War the Americans were British. The French and British were skirmishing in the Ohio valley and a French expedition had forced out several British merchants. And as for the "propaganda" it must have been pretty damn good considering that William Pitt, the leading man of the British Empire, thought the Americans were in the right. "I rejoice that America has resisted. Three millions of people, so dead to all the feelings of liberty, as voluntarily to submit to be slaves, would have been fit instruments to make slaves of the rest....The gentleman asks, when were the colonies emancipated? But I desire to know, when were they made slaves." -WP In another speech he compared the Colonials to Parliament themselves in their war with Charles II. And considering that you neither refuted nor added to the discussion in any meaningful way your comment is simply a waste of space. Much like your brain.

    This post makes me want to reach into this screen and punch that "getting it all wrong" Idiot in the Boston Redsox hat right square in the mouth.
    Then I look down at the comments to see if there is any hope in this next generation.
    I want to give ya`ll the old dude lecture. I know it will be lost on most of you. So I wont.
    However, the one thing you knuckleheads care about is the internet.
    Senator Joe Liberman of Conn is currently trying to make it very easy for the Government to shut down and or restrict your internet.
    There is alot of garbage like this in all 4 major english speaking countrys. US/UK/Canada?Australia.
    There is very little real differances in how all four of these countries go about their daily lives.
    Forget America vs Enland, The DI is about Liberty vs Tyranny. If you 18+`s don`t argue for Liberty you will LOSE YOUR FREEDOM.
    Your beloved internets are on the chopping block.

    xiquiripat, actually, your comment provides nothing, because it is ENTIRELY IRRELEVANT TO THE DISCUSSION, which was THE CAUSE OF COLONIAL REBELLION, not the economic outcome of the French and Indian War.

    The cause of colonial rebellion, as tenty stated, is COLONIALS THROWING OUT TEA BECAUSE IT WAS FAR BELOW NORMAL PRICE. Tenty did not state the reason for that, but it was belief that the tea was poisoned, as EVERYONE who has ever taken a US history class should know.

    It seems you have a learning disorder, xiquiripat.

    Siyanor: It appears I will have to put this in simple terms and hope you understand. Firstly, to pretend that the economic and political backdrop (taxation, Proclamation of 1763, etc) of the Colonies is irrelevent to the origins of the rebellion of those colonies is a statement of profound ignorance. Secondly, AN ACT OF REBELLION IS NOT THE SAME THING AS THE CAUSE OF THAT REBELLION. This is a concept I would expect a small child to grasp. The cause has to be traced to the underlying motivations and attitudes of both sides. Specifically, the desire of the people of Virginia or Pennsylvania to be treated the same as those from Northumbria or Cornwall with the same representation in the House of Commons and the refusal of the Home Government to allow it. The Boston Tea party was merely one manifestation of defiance that began with peaceful dissent and ended in war, it was the cause of nothing.

    Eh, American self-hatred is so gauche. This guy (in the pic) is getting old as well. Not to mention, if we didn`t argue over what our founding fathers did, we`d have no purpose for the Supreme Court or the system of checks and balances for that matter. As Thomas Jefferson said, "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."
