    British crown for their violent, and treasonous rebellion?

      Very interesting.  Is that a legit old poster there?

      The opportunity to fight a tyrannical government.  And 50 acres of land to boot (if one lived to occupy those 50 acres I guess..).

      Looks like a decent plan to me.

      And the descendants of Great Britain, unlike other tyrants,  has finally figuratively acquired the proper humility about how they had to "let (their) people go".   Amen.

      No apologies required then or now.

          lol
          I might've read it wrong....

          Bummer.  Ya mean the "Tea Party" advocates weren't offered 50 acres of land??
          It figures.  They must've had a very good reason for acting against tyranny then.  Something called freedom.  smile

            They were given many more acres.  Of course they had to massacre the Indians occupying the acres, then have their slaves plow and plant the acres, so it wasn't all grog and crumpets for the patriots.

              I don't think the Indians were as tolerant of immigrants running from tyrants as we are now in America......do ya think?

                  Contrary to popular belief the indians were not all peaceful lil hippies smoking in the woods and loving one another. They had their own wars and conflicts, and they helped the new comers as needed to secure the new-comers help against their own enemies.

                  It was not so simple as we came and over-crowded them, or there would have never been a problem.

                  Just not that simple at all.

            well, the red coats the loyalists wore weren;t exactly discreet as far as potential shooting targets go

        Who'd have known the British would react so poorly to a simple party? And the Canadians? After we did all the work, they couldn't even accept our gracious offer to let them join our union.

          Sorry, but Canadians are not into the destruction of property (accept during a well organized Stanly Cup-related riot, of course)

          Plus tea parties are boring.. if you called it a beer party, that would have been another thing

            You Canadians just don't know how to read between the lines.  You know Boston was full of the Irish.

    Of course! Anyone who fights back from brutal military control is an insurgent.
