This day in history: The Stamp Act

It's almost erie weird that this day in history on March 22nd 1765 that the British Parliament passed the Stamp Act. The piece of legislation that marked the end of colonialism and the beginning of tyranny in North America.

I would like to suppose that adjusted for leap years and atomic minutes and all that other stuff that somehow astrologically speaking there is some connection between the passing of the Stamp Act and the passage of the Obamascare nightmare law.

At a minimum the connection is that both pieces of legislation have made America sit up, pay attention, and determine to take action.

When laws that raise taxes and are passed against the will of the people, and must use parliamentary tricks and illusions, you can rightly suggest that we have reverted to the state of 'taxation without representation'.

"If once [the people] become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress and Assemblies, Judges and Governors, shall all become wolves. It seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions." --Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1787. ME 6:58
 "Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government. Whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them to rights." --Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, 1789. ME 7:253
and of course

"Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends [i.e., securing inherent and inalienable rights, with powers derived from the consent of the governed], it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness." --Thomas Jefferson: Declaration of Independence, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:315
