Was The American Revolution A Mistake ?

July 4th 2020

I did not celebrate the Fourth of July today.

This goes back to a term paper I wrote in graduate school. It was on Colonial taxation in the British North American Colonies in 1775. Not counting local taxation, I discovered that the total burden of British imperial taxation was about 1% of national income. It may have been as high as 2.5% in the southern Colonies.

In 2008, Alvin Rabushka's book of almost 1,000 pages appeared: Taxation in Colonial America (Princeton University Press). A review published in the Business History Reviewsummarizes the book's findings.

Rabushka's most original and impressive contribution is his measurement of tax rates and tax burdens. However, his estimate of comparative transatlantic tax burdens may be a bit of moving target. At one point, he concludes that in the period from 1764-1775 "the nearly 2 million white Colonists in America paid on the order of about 1% of the annual taxes levied on the roughly 8.5 million residents of Britain, or 1/25th in per capita terms, not taking into account the higher average income and consumption in the Colonies" (p. 729). Later he writes that on the eve of the Revolution, "British tax burdens were 10 or more times heavier than those in the Colonies" (p. 867). Other scholars may want to refine his estimates, based on other archival sources, different treatment of technical issues such as the adjustment of inter-Colonial and transatlantic comparisons for exchange rates or new estimates of comparative income and wealth. Nonetheless, no one is likely to challenge his most important finding: the huge tax gap between the American periphery and the core of the British Empire.

Was the Declaration of Independence Built Upon a Lie?

The Colonists had a sweet deal in 1775. Great Britain was the second-freest nation on Earth. Switzerland was probably the most free nation, but I would be hard-pressed to identify any other nation in 1775 that was ahead of Great Britain. And in Great Britain's Empire, the Colonists were by far the freest.

I will say it, loud and clear: The freest society on Earth in 1775 was British North America, with the obvious exception of the slave system. Anyone who was not a slave had incomparable freedom.


Jefferson wrote these words in the Declaration of Independence:

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

I can think of no more misleading political assessment uttered by any leader in the history of the United States. No words having such great impact historically in this nation were less true. No political bogeymen invoked by any political sect as "the liar of the century" ever said anything as verifiably false as these words.

The Continental Congress declared independence on July 2, 1776. Some members signed the Declaration on July 4. The public in general believed the leaders at the Continental Congress. They did not understand what they were about to give up. They could not see what price in blood and treasure and debt they would soon pay. And they did not foresee the tax burden in the new nation after 1783.

In his book, Rabushka gets to the point:

Historians have written that taxes in the new American nation rose and remained considerably higher, perhaps three times as much, than they were under British rule. More money was required for national defense than previously needed to defend the frontier from Indians and the French, and the new nation faced other expenses.

So as a result of the American Revolution, the tax burden tripled.

The debt burden soared as soon as the Revolution began. Monetary inflation wiped out the currency system. Price controls in 1777 produced the debacle of Valley Forge. Percy Greaves, a disciple of Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises and for 17 years an attendee at his seminar, wrote this in 1972:

Our Continental Congress first authorized the printing of Continental notes in 1775. The Congress was warned against printing more and more of them. In a 1776 pamphlet, Pelatiah Webster, America's first economist, told his fellow men that Continental currency might soon become worthless unless something was done to curb the further printing and issuance of this paper money.

The people and the Congress refused to listen to his wise advice. With more and more paper money in circulation, consumers kept bidding up prices. Pork rose from 4 cents to 8 cents a pound. Beef soared from about 4 cents to 100 a pound. As one historian tells us, "By November 1777, commodity prices were 480% above the prewar average."

The situation became so bad in Pennsylvania that the people and legislature of this state decided to try "a period of price control, limited to domestic commodities essential for the use of the Army." It was thought that this would reduce the cost of feeding and supplying our Continental Army. It was expected to reduce the burden of war.

The prices of uncontrolled imported goods then went sky-high, and it was almost impossible to buy any of the domestic commodities needed for the Army. The controls were quite arbitrary. Many farmers refused to sell their goods at the prescribed prices. Few would take the paper Continentals. Some, with large families to feed and clothe, sold their farm products stealthily to the British in return for gold. For it was only with gold that they could buy the necessities of life which they could not produce for themselves.

On Dec. 5, 1777, the Army's quartermaster-general, refusing to pay more than the government-set prices, issued a statement from his Reading, Pennsylvania, headquarters saying, "If the farmers do not like the prices allowed them for this produce, let them choose men of more learning and understanding the next election."

This was the winter of Valley Forge, the very nadir of American history. On Dec. 23, 1777, George Washington wrote to the president of the Congress "that, notwithstanding it is a standing order, and often repeated, that the troops shall always have two days' provisions by them, that they might be ready at any sudden call; yet an opportunity has scarcely ever offered, of taking an advantage of the enemy that has not been either totally obstructed, or greatly impeded, on this account... We have no less than 2,898 men now in camp unfit for duty, because they are barefoot and otherwise naked... I am now convinced beyond a doubt, that, unless some great and capital change suddenly takes place, this Army must inevitably be reduced to one or other of these three things: starve, dissolve or disperse in order to obtain subsistence in the best manner they can."

"There Was No British Tyranny, and Surely Not in North America"

Only after the price control laws were repealed in 1778 could the Army buy food again. But the hyperinflation of the Continentals and state-issued currencies replaced the pre-Revolution system of silver currency: Spanish pieces of eight.

The proponents of independence invoked British tyranny in North America. But there was no British tyranny in North America.

[Ron: I disagree. This thesis is false since it ignores the real source of British tyranny in the American colonies at the time.

Knowing about England's tally system, the Massachusetts colony issued some 7,000 pounds of debt-free paper scrip into circulation in 1690. The absence of a standard of value caused problems but the economy flourished with full employment. This system was then adopted to varying degrees, by other colonies and they also prospered. There was no official banking system and fewer than 30 private lending institutions in all 13 colonies. Later Benjamin Franklin said the colonies were prosperous because this "Colonial Scrip" was issued `… in the proper proportion to the demands of trade and industry.'

Benjamin Franklin said: 'In the colonies we issue our own money. It is called colonial Scrip... we control its purchasing power, and we have no interest to pay to anyone.'

Seventy five years after granting the Khazar Banksters the right to establish the Bank of England and to provide loans at interest to the British government,  England's war debts consumed 75% of its budget ie three quarters of all taxes were going to pay the interest on its war bonds. Consequently Britain needed to squeeze more and more money from all her colonies and America was no exception.

In 1764 the Bank of England forced the English Parliament to pass the currency Act  prohibiting the Colonies from issuing their own money and requiring them to pay their taxes in gold or silver coin. Franklin said:

`Within one year from that date the streets of the Colonies were filled with the unemployed.'

This was the real cause of the War of Independence. Franklin said:

'The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the Colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction.'

Quoted by Senator Robert L. Owen, National Economy and the Banking System, Senate document # 23 (Washington D.C, U.S. Government Printing Office, 1939) p. 98

In 1765 Parliament passed the Stamp Act requiring that every item sold had to have a stamp placed on it indicating that a tax had been paid on that item and paid in gold. This is what drove American colonists to openly revolt. Why? Because without gold you could literally buy or sell nothing. The British had forced the colonists to pay for everything using gold. Arguably this is the definition of plutocracy: rule by the rich. For more discussion see eg: The Secret of Oz -

What the Jewish banksters forced the British Parliament to do in 1764 and 1765 they have routinely done ever since. By controlling the emission of money and currency they fleece and enslave whole nations periodically increasing and then decreasing the creation and distribution of money and/or currency and interest rates, causing booms and busts that result in austerity and penury for all but the banksters and their corporatist brethren.

The biggest and most insideous "taxation" in the British empire and globally today has been the usury practiced by the banksters granted exclusive licences to create currency out of thin air and to fraudulently issue it as "money" AT INTEREST. While income and most other government taxation is extensive, pernicious and cosmically unlawful, by far the most egregious and damaging impost on the US nation has been the usury imposed by banksters. See eg: How Money Rules - And: How Inflation Destroys Civilization -

Accordingly claiming that Imperial taxation in the British North American Colonies in 1775 prior to the "American Revolution"was only about 1% or at most 2.5% of "national income" and that therefore the "Revolution" was a mistake is rabbinical nonsense. The real British monetary tyranny inflicted on the Colonies caused gross unemployment, austerity and poverty. Sound familiar? The difference between then and now is that the colonists were free and thoughtful, ie not indoctrinated and passive as compared to the US population today. Not only did the Founders of the united states of America object to monetary tyranny and enslavement but they  were also genuinely thoughtful and highly educated by today's standards. That meant that they rationally articulated divine principles about human life and governance that seemingly very few USans understand today. IF USans understood the reality of the Federal Reserve System (the Fed) and fractional reserve commercial banking they would as Henry ford said, revolt overnight. The reason that President Trump is having such a hard time resetting the US monetary system is that most USans are too  mind controlled by the US MSM and the US cultural and education systems to be able to shake free of their cognitive dissonance.

In fact the egregious personal, property and other taxes and charges levied by US federal and state governments only exist in order to pay interest on the Fed's fraudulent debt notes corruptly borrowed by those givernments. That is similar to the position of the British monarch and Parliament in 1775.].

In 1872, Frederick Engels wrote an article, "On Authority." He criticized anarchists, whom he called anti-authoritarians. His description of the authoritarian character of all armed revolutions should remind us of the costs of revolution.

A revolution is certainly the most authoritarian thing there is; it is the act whereby one part of the population imposes its will upon the other part by means of rifles, bayonets and cannon - authoritarian means, if such there be at all; and if the victorious party does not want to have fought in vain, it must maintain this rule by means of the terror which its arms inspire in the reactionists.

After the American Revolution, 46,000 British Loyalists fled to Canada and other places controlled by the crown. They were not willing to swear allegiance to the new Colonial governments. They retained their loyalty to the nation that had delivered to them the greatest liberty on Earth. They had not committed treason.

The revolutionaries are not remembered as treasonous. The victors write the history books.

The Boston Tea Party: A Protest Against Lower Tea Prices

What would libertarians - even conservatives - give today in order to return to an era in which the central government extracted 1% of the nation's wealth? Where there was no income tax ?

Would they describe such a society as tyrannical ?

[Ron: This is disinformation or at least a misstatement of the true situation as outlined in my comments above. Ever since the mid 18th Century the British Parliament (and subsequently other governments elsewhere) has forced British subjects and citizens to pay ever increasing taxes to governments to enable them to pay interest on debts improperly owed to banksters due to corrupt government decisions granting free exclusive licenses to those banksters to issue the currency (money) of the nation at whatever interest (usury) rate they choose and to distribute it at their discretion to whoever they choose.  Those functions are the exclusive responsibility of the community and its legitimate government. Granting private corporations the unsupervised discretion to emit currency at interest and to choose who gets it is corrupt.

Because of these corrupt government practices the British and US national communities (and others) are forced to pay additional "taxation" in the form of usurious interest on virtually all money and currency in circulation because banksters have been granted a monopoly on the issuance thereof. THAT interest surcharge on entire economies has been estimated by Anthony Migchels to sometimes be as high as 40% of total national economic production. See eg:

Accordingly implying that government taxation is the only "taxation" extracted from American colonists prior to the War of Independence and on the inhabitants of the united states of America or anyone else since then is bollocks.].

That the largest signature on the Declaration of Independence was signed by the richest smuggler in North America was no coincidence. He was hopping mad. Parliament in 1773 had cut the tax on tea imported by the British East India Co., so the cost of British tea went lower than the smugglers' cost on non-British tea.

This had cost Hancock a pretty penny. The Tea Party had stopped the unloading of the tea by throwing privately owned tea off a privately owned ship - a ship in competition with Hancock's ships. The Boston Tea Party was, in fact, a well-organized protest against lower prices stemming from lower taxes.

[Ron: As I mentioned above, Benjamin Franklin said: '

'The colonies would gladly have borne the little tax on tea and other matters had it not been that England took away from the Colonies their money, which created unemployment and dissatisfaction.'

The American Revolution was about tyrannous British monetary policy NOT a tax on tea. As they do with every fact and issue that exposes their corrupt and unlawful monetary and banking practices, the Jewish banksters who control our world  distort and conceal historical truths so that ignorant gentiles fail to understand their malevolent banking practices and their impoverishing effects upon most of the global population.This article is an example of the results of that policy.].

So once again, I'm not celebrating the Fourth of July today.

[Ron: Investing in gold or anything else will become irrelevant shortly.

Once COVID-19 has been dealt with the global monetary system will have to be RESET. The Rothschilds' controlled global Central Banks will be forced to swallow the debts they have created for humanity and debt levels will cease to be an issue for human societies because the Fed and the Rothschilds' global central banks will be bankrupted and cease to exist. Then each sovereign nation will become responsible for issuing its own usury free money and currency. As of 1 June 2020 The International Treasury Controller will begin the process of agreeing, with all countries of the World, the "Pegging" of their currency to a replacement for the Petro Dollar which will be the INTERNATIONAL GOLD BACKED GLOBEC CURRENCY. That process will establish the value of each national currency vis-a-vis the Globec which will bring them stability and away from the currency markets which will be abolished. This will involve the collection of numerous details and data so that a real and practical value can be assessed for each currency and agreed with the applicable country. See: DAVID CRAYFORD ---------- IT’S TIME THAT SOMEONE STARTED KICKING ASS SO THAT CHANGES TO THE CURRENT FINANCIAL SYSTEM CAN BE MADE TO BENEFIT EVERYONE, NOT THE MINORITY -

This process is being organised by the Triodity of Presidents Trump, Putin and Xi on behalf of Christ Michael Aton as part of the establishment of his Millennial Reign. Everything about human life on this planet will be subject to a rethink and a RESET. As this planet and its population journey towards higher consciousness and Light and Life, divine cosmic law will replace Talmudic propaganda and all its manifestations including "democracy", man made law, globalisation and 'rules based' international law. Similarly, flawed ideas about universal suffrage, police powers and usury will cease to be relevant as global governance becomes divinely directed. Nations will become genuinely sovereign and will assume republican forms of local, regional and national governance.

This process will involve a massive upheavel in all aspects of human society and not just the value of money. The real changes may not manifest until after the coming Magnetic Reversal and stasis period. During stasis Christ Michael's Space Fleet will remove many people to other planets and places more suited to their level of consciousness. That will mean that life will be very different on this planet thereafter, assisted by higher vibrational enegies impacting the planet and its inhabitants. So be it.].
