I would like to wish everyone a happy Independence Day. If you haven't read it lately I encourage you to read the Declaration of Independence
Pay particular attention to the Indictments that the colonies had with the King. Also keep in mind this was during a time when the King did what ever he wanted, this was before a Constitution and Bill of Rights. Look at that list when the king/.gov had no guidelines to stop their tyranny, and think about that list now with the supposed protections(constitution, bill of rights) we have in 2013.
