The Boston Tea Party

December 16, 1773; The Boston Tea Party.

America has a strong heritage of tax rebellion.
There was no income tax or any direct tax on people in the Colonies.
When the tax on tea got to 17% we could not tolerate the tyranny.

In the Boston Tea Party, citizens, some disguised as Indians, swarm over British ships and dump 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor. Led by Samuel Adams, the American colonists had refused to buy the English tea to protest the violation of their constitutional right not to be taxed without representation. (This constitution was not the U.S. constitution).

Sam Adams would write in his journal (December, 17 1773) that the “destruction of the tea is so bold, so daring, so firm, intrepid and inflexible, and it must have important consequences.”

Tax rebellion.

After the war, we had direct tax on people to extinguish the war debt. Then we were free.

By the time of Thomas Jefferson’s inauguration, March 4, 1805, he asked:
“what farmer, what mechanic, what laborer, ever sees a tax-gatherer of the United States?”

That’s correct. Your constitutional right, as a Citizen, is to be free from federal tax collectors.

Prove it to yourself.
