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."

Welcome to the land of I-Am-Bored! Where no matter the subject there is always a horde of "experts" ready to explain to everyone why the picture or video they just laughed at wasn't funny, at least not when you take into account the plethora of at this point completely unrelated "facts" which they will relate to as if they had a phd in pointless trivia. I hate this site.

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.
