Why the Revolution?

As we prepare to celebrate Independence Day, let us not forget that the Declaration of Independence listed 27 reasons for splitting from England.

Only one was about taxation, and that was a complaint about imposing taxes on us without representation. (I.e., without having a vote.)

Most of the others were about the abrogation of the rights of the people (not of business and commerce) to control our own destinies through the offices of our government.
