The Founding Fathers started the Revolutionary War because England was spying on the colonists in the exact same way that the NSA is spying on modern Americans. Indeed, Americans are the most spied on people in world history.
The Founding Fathers fought for freedom from an oppressive central bank which sucked the prosperity out of the economy, but the Federal Reserve’s policies have created inequality even worse than experienced by slaves in Colonial America in 1774.
The Founding Fathers warned against standing armies, saying that they destroy freedom. And they warned against financing wars with debt. But according to Nobel prize winning economist Joseph Stiglitz, the U.S. debt for the Iraq war could be as high as $5 trillion dollars (or $6 trillion dollars according to a study by Brown University.) The U.S. has the largest standing army in history, and treats anti-war sentiment as terrorism.
The Founding Fathers fought and died for a free press … but the current American authorities treat journalism as an act of terrorism. Indeed, Americans have lost virtually all of the rights that the Founding Fathers fought and died for.
The Founding Fathers also launched the Revolutionary War because the British government was engaging in crony capitalism (which constituted taxation without representation), instead of letting the colonists have a shot at free market competition. The modern American authorities are doing the same thing.
Indeed, some American authorities have literally said that the Founding Fathers were terrorists … and that their behavior should be treated as terrorism.
According to Daniel Ellsberg, the American authorities are even more draconian than King George. After all, he never indefinitely detained people without trial or access to a lawyer.
