The Dissenter/Disinter Magazine Speaks Out!
Here again! The Dissenter/Disinter Magazine speaking out:
A quote from the article:
“Americans further objected to being forced to purchase the taxed tea only through governmentally approved outlets. In fact, these passionate and thinking Americans were so opposed to this construct they successfully boycotted the entire scheme and the tax on tea had to be withdrawn. Finally, in 1775 a war was fought over these conflicting political theories and much blood and treasure were expended in order to resolve the conflict. During the War of Independence, Americans would cry out “No Taxation without Representation.
“What replaced the “Divine Right of Kings” in the newly formed United States of America was a Constitution that recognized that every man had equal standing in the new government. This new governmental system utilized democratic processes, representing We the People, to run the government. The new system also recognized that men are fallible, as all men sin and fall short of the glory of God. One characteristic of this new Republic was that a citizen’s rights were more important than what might someday be the appetite of a mob.”
