Agree eldogg. But the people then, as now, were not happy with the powers that be..
I like history, but this was quite an interesting documentary series..
Kind of summed up the feelings at the time..
True "group mentality" oh they were hard working self sustaining people. They just were sharing the wealth a bit too much..
Ironically it was not them who fired the first shots, but the people of money a bit up the pay scale. The people who were getting hit the hardest with taxes.
At that, only 3% of the population at the time, ever picked up arms..
Washington's Army was down too 2,000 Men at Valley Forge.
Their is strong undertones of unhappiness with Nappies "illegal" mass passing of his executive orders, by-passing Congress.
Is history doomed to repeat itself? I really really pray not.
Just have a feeling, it will not be the people on the receiving end of Santa's gifts. But those giving the giving, are the ones I am worried about..
