and my US. History teacher was
trying to get us to understand why it
was such a big deal that England had
put a tax on colonial sugar, and he

What if you had to pay a tax every
time you logged onto wifi?"
And the whole class just went
and I heard at least have people
whisper "l would murder someone"

Actually a lot of those taxes were reasonable, considering that the British shelled out some major coinage preventing the French from Frenching up the place.

Reginleif saying something pro-limey? I know I'm scared too.

Problem was that Americans wanted more autonomy, so they made the issue of being taxed without consent demanding Parliament representatives and the such....while impractical the Crown offered no concessions on their part (King George III wasn't the smartest guy, the byproduct of generations of inbreeding and arrogance combined into one autist) and made the problem worse by shutting down elected bodies and generally being a douche.

Then some people got mad, shot at each other, freedom happened, and now more than 2 centuries later, the tables have turned with the US practically paying for European defense.

If someone wanted to assassinate me it would be pretty easy. There could be a tiger on drugs playing heavy metal in my house and I wouldn't give a 						****					 and stay in my room. But if someone were to turn off my WiFi router you could bet your balls I would go and check what the 						****					 is wrong with it.

Actually, the Colonies (not states) paid hardly any tax. The other colonies and Britain paid 25 times more tax than the colonies. Also we defended them from the french during the wars with them as the colonists refused to defend themselves or serve in the army. And the war of independance would not have been won without the 30,000 troops from france. Considering Washington had a possible army of 250,000 and could only muster 25,000 makes you see just how little support there was for independance. When the war was won nearly half of the population of the colonies left and migrated to Canada..... litlte history lesson. They just didnt like that the East India company were allowed to start importing tea into the colonies. So the wifi argument that teacher used isnt anywhere near the same as the tea tax thing.

He's still wrong. American Colonial forces served alongside British troops during the 7 years war.

It's because they were being taxed but not given representation in parliament.
