So all those protesters are mad about the increased tax on gasoline, so they riot and in Paris they tag the Arc de Triomphe with graffiti. The people complain about their taxes going up and up, services going down and the way that government officials live on a higher plane than ordinary people. Sound familiar? It should. It happened in the American colonies in the 1770s. And it's happening again, right now, right here, with barely a peep out of the masses. Folks, we had a chance to establish liberty and freedom...and we let it slip away.
