For Farmer Hahn, Sen. Grassley, and the Other Ladies of the Evening

Perhaps you recall some of this language:

...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it...

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

...He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

...For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent...

...A [Representative] whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Think positive. George III was not executed during the ensuing...ah....difficulties.
