Independence Day

For a very long time the colonies were content to work as subjects of the King.  When he tried to extract money to pay for the cost of defending them from the French and various native groups a growing number of colonists fought back to either have full representation in their governing bodies or, failing that, full independence.  Shortly after they won their freedom they organized a careful balance of governing bodies to serve them to keep them from being bullied by tyrants in the future.  It is still a strong system and will defeat any individual who tries to rule by dictate and go beyond their given powers.  We shall not abide tyrants.  Just sayin’.  Happy Independence Day.
