Are we there yet.....???? Boston Tea Party
Does this sound familary to what is happening now????

Taxation Without Representation - because of the lack of representation, the British government was free to tax the colonists in any way -- and for any amount -- that it saw fit.

With no way to fight taxation and no way to claim their rights, many colonists feared that their property could be taken away through debilitating taxes.

Since it had free reign to tax colonists, the years leading up the Revolution saw the British government introduce a number of taxation laws.

However, because of protests, the government modified or repealed many of these laws soon afterwards.

These laws and subsequent protests contributed to growing tensions throughout the colonies

Before we look at the Boston Tea Party itself and the events immediately preceding it, it's important to examine how such great tensions between the American colonists and the British government developed. At its core, the Boston Tea Party was a conflict over taxation.

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs." -- Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President.
"A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years, [79 years now in 2012] freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have in varying degrees been abridged by laws brought into force by statutes of national emergency."
