The psychological events inflicted upon the American ideal continue...

What is a real American? Two continents contain that name.

 

Is the American Idea owned and operated by those that should not be?

 

:huh:

Rub a dub dub, here's an interesting one for the tub:  The Stamp Act!

Ho, ho, ho, what do you know?

Fees and fines for every living legal paper in the colonies. You couldn't even buy a deck of cards without it being stamped. Like cigarettes, right!

Well, well, well..this bullshit needs a new spell...

Considering the colonies got real pissy about all these new taxes on papers, papyrus, and page...why the hell do we still pay all these fees today?

 

:blink:

 

Somehow, somewhere, someway, we've all forgotten the reasons we were fighting the tyranny in the first place. This pyramid of power from Britain became too large to control from one place and the elite started bickering. So, its essence, as a whole, started to break up into competing groups of control. The Crown of Britain and all it stood for seemed to be breaking apart forever. But, no! There was a bigger plan in the making....

Behind the veil of veils....

 

The American Elite wanted to control their own destiny! Only, they and the British powerhouse are still NOT the true 'elite'...

 

Money, honey.  Who loves the bunny!

 

Down the hole we go....

 

Lo, lo, lo

To promote good-will, good-fellowship, and everlasting peace between the United States and Great Britain'. Over the years it has boasted an elite membership of politicians, diplomats, businessmen, and writers .

Lessons learned from the stamp and sugar acts....

http://alphahistory....eclaratory-act/

After repealing the Stamp Act Parliament decides to pass the Declaratory Act.  This is a wicked one because it effectively puts Parliament in control over all colony policy. This leaves the colonies under the net of Parliament. Even unto having any direct redress or appeal to the king himself.

The colonies didn't pay too much attention to this act....being only concerned with the economy. After the Stamp and sugar act debacles something had to be done.

But, there were some who saw this as a prelude to bigger things on the way...taxes! More taxes with bigger teeth to collect it.

 

:puppetearth:

The Declaratory Act

March 18, 1766

AN ACT for the better securing the dependency of his Majesty's dominions in America upon the crown and parliament of Great Britain.

So....

More Paper!
Paper, all kinds of paper...
This would be known as the Townshend Duties.

The Townshend Revenue Act
 
Taxes on glass, paint, oil, lead, paper, and tea were applied with the design of raising £40,000 a year for the administration of the colonies. The result was the resurrection of colonial hostilities created by the Stamp Act.
 
Reaction assumed revolutionary proportions in Boston, in the summer of 1768, when customs officials impounded a sloop owned by John Hana doodle do, for violations of the trade regulations. Crowds mobbed the customs office, forcing the officials to retire to a British Warship in the Harbor. Troops from England and Nova Scotia marched in to occupy Boston on October 1, 1768. Bostonians offered no resistance. Rather they changed their tactics. They established non-importation agreements that quickly spread throughout the colonies. British trade soon dried up and the powerful merchants of Britain once again interceded on behalf of the colonies.

Remember those writs of assistance?
 
All of the acts and policy changes started to stack up.  Like making music one note at a time. Stacking the notes to make chords to create lawful Harmony. Harmony for who?
 
The melody is sounding chromatically ominous....
The rhythm began to quicken....

Colonial violence was then directed towards the policy makers and their enforcers. Governor Thomas Hutchinson being one.
 
Wouldn't the men who perpetrated these acts be called terrorists by today's standards?

There is a difference.....it is in whom they targeted. They made there complaints known to the only authority close at hand. The ones doing the bidding of the 'Crown'... not foolish acts of idiotic violence against the public. But, calculated attacks against the TBTB. 
 
Under it all, important colonists did know where the real power was coming from....seems like they wanted their own piece of the American pie. To create and control their own pyramid!

Look how shiny it is in the dark...
