How Far Boston Has Fallen

Boston was arguably the most important center of thinking for the American revolution. The State that produced men with revolutionary zeal like John Adams and John Hancock is now the mouth piece for the establishment and the bevy of taxes Americans are about to face. In 1765 John Adams wrote the following concerning the Stamp Act, "We have always understood it to be a grand and fundamental principle of the constitution that no freeman should be subject to any tax to which he has not given his own consent, in person or by proxy. And the maxims of the law, as we have constantly received them, are to the same effect: that no freeman can be separated from his property but by his own act or fault."
The Boston of the revolution has become the new London of the King Obama era. The Boston globe now pronounces the patriotic virtues of being coercively separated from the fruits of your labor so the government can spend it on programs that the Adams and the Hancocks of their day would have balked at. Adams warned that Democracies do not last long and usually they die by suicide. He was certainly right. As America slouches toward government [IRS] enforced socialism, American workers will watch more and more of their paycheck go into the coffers of a United States Congress that has an approval rating of less than twenty percent. The only remedy lies in "We the people..." and the calling of a Constitutional Convention by the States to reinforce the principles of the 10th Amendment and return the Federal Government to a government of enumerated powers as set forth in Article I, section 8 of the US Constitution.
