    The Truth

    The American Revolution Started Over Disarmament

    The American Revolution Started Over Disarmament.

    Infowars.com
    January 23, 2013

    The American revolution started on April 19, 1775 in response to an attempt by the British regulars to disarm the militia of their stockpiles near Lexington. It became the shot heard ’round the world. The subsequent Constitution and Bill of Rights set up checks and balances, in part as a response to various types of British abuse and interference.

    Today, the establishment has openly violated much the Constitution and Bill of Rights, wantonly spied on communications without warrant and staked TSA agents at airports to abuse the traveling public despite the 4th Amendment, and has conducted a long train of abuses. Now it seeks to dismantle the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, removing yet another important check on government power.

    As the following special report makes clear, the Founding Fathers all intended for individual Americans to have firearms, to discourage and make impractical the worst forms of government abuse and usurpation:

    WRONG... as always. Started over TAXES that were TOO high (Tea); hence the Boston Tea Party throwing TEA into the harbor. Ban Coffee, you will MOST CERTAINLY get The ..... Coffee Party; dumping coffee (PROBABLY Decaf) into harbors, rivers, lakes, ponds...

    BTW, read SOMEWHERE, wasn't even on BUNKER'S HILL... Breed's Hill, or something.

    Red is correct it was the British trying to confiscate our arms that ignited the war, the shot heard around the world was our forefathers resisting our arms being confiscated, taxes was just one of many issues.

    Easy Reb,lets not incite folks to waste coffee!l.o.l. we,d be roasting barley,chicory,dandelion roots and corn again.
    Taxes just part of the oppression. It was shrugging off of colonial rule, like kids rebelling against parents in England's eyes. Not why colonies were established.
    Disarming those who would rebel(not all would!)was going to put an end to it.

    The Boston Tea party, which of course was earlier than Lexington, was engineering by a small group of citizens, mainly businessmen protesting taxes. Rather than pay tax on the tea, they threw it into the harbor. There was also the "no taxation without representation" mindset going thru the colonies. The people were getting sick and tired of being told they had to pay all these taxes and did not have the right to manufacture goods for themselves, but had to buy everything from England. Kind of like today,huh? Patrick Henry of Virginia, said "give me liberty, or give me death." Things had been brewing for awhile, and by the time Lexington came around, George III, aka Fat George, had decided the colonists needed to be taught a lesson. BAADDD attitude. When the Brits came into Lexington, their intention was indeed to disarm the locals, not to collect taxes, the ultimate goal was state control of what George saw as rebellion brewing. He was right....rebellion had been brewing. At the time of Lexington and Concord and throughout the entire Revolution, the people in the colonies were evenly divided. Half wanted a new country. Half wanted to stay under the rule of the crown (Loyalists) and the other half just wanted to be left alone. Yes, that's three halves, but it is actually fairly close to reality for the time. A few days ago, several states told the Federal Government they would NOT participate in new gun control measures. Did we just see the 2nd Boston Tea party?

    Guys I hate to say it but it was taxes. Don't you remember "taxation without representation" - stamp act, tea act, etc.

    The British were significantly increasing the taxes of the colonies to pay for the French and Indian war and the general cost of British defense of the colonies.

    The poster is correct that this was the main issue and that issue had been simmering for many many years.

    Taxation without representation was the tyranny that the colonists referred to not the taking of guns.

    The only reason the Brits were marching to confiscate the guns was that man of the colonists were ALREADY in revolt.

    Don't you guys remember school or school house rock for that matter. This is American history 101!! And why we have a "representative" government. Because the people demanded representation in a government that was taxing them.

    Guys you got to watch out for authors, politicians, preachers who distort history, the bible, the truth! to try and make a point. Always be skeptical of what you read and hear. With all this Internet bs any idiot can "publish" something and it looks like a legit piece. It's scary and sad.

    Best

    Smokey I couldn't agree more. I'm surprised people aren't again shouting "taxation without representation". Founding fathers would be rolling over in their graves if they saw how the federal government taxes now (and the size it's grown to!!). I know most you folks are gun crazy, but I think taxation is a much bigger deal and point if contention with the government. That is what the "tea party" was suppose to stand for - until they got off track with whacky fringe issues.

    And that's why they took the name TEA party" people. The Boston tea party rebelling against the tea tax!!

    How can you guys protect against the future when you don't even know some of the most important issues of your past. You'll be doomed to repeat as the saying goes. Best.
