To the editor:
"He has erected a multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance."*
"He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws: giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation."*
"For imposing taxes on us without our consent."*
"In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people."*
*Excerpts from the Declaration of Independence, in Congress, July 4, 1776.
Does this sound like someone we see constantly on the TV tube?
