What Would the Fake Mohawks Think Now?

The degree of taxation faced by Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and the other patriots, who disguised themselves as Mohawk Indians in order to escape recognition while tea-ifying the Boston Harbor, was miniscule in comparison to today's American standards.

Take a trip on this Fourth of July holiday and revisit a brief history of the Boston Tea Party.

Taxation without representation. Intolerable. Yes. Would that we could send representatives to Washington that didn't have to raise millions of dollars to campaign, subject their family to smear campaigns, and turn away lobbyists while their cohorts take bribes.
