Title card/crawl:: A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...
Title card/crawl:: Turmoil has engulfed the Galactic Republic. The taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems is in dispute. Hoping to resolve the matter with a blockade of deadly battleships, the greedy Trade Federation has stopped all shipping to the small planet of Naboo. While the Congress of the Republic endlessly debates this alarming chain of events, the Supreme Chancellor has secretly dispatched two Jedi Knights, the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy, to settle the conflict...More [04/02/2007 12:04:00]

Col. Harry Burwell:
This is not for the independence of one or two colonies, but for the independence of one nation.



Capt. Wilkins:
Tell me Colonel what nation is that?



Mr. Howard:
An American nation!



Capt. Wilkins:
There is no such nation and to speak of one is treason.



Mr. Howard:
We ARE citizens of an American nation! And our rights are being threatened by a tyrant three thousand miles away!



Benjamin Martin:
Tell me, Mr Howard, why should I trade one tyrant three thousand miles away for three thousand tyrants one mile away? An elected legeslator can trample a man's rights as easily as a King can.



Col. Harry Burwell:
Benjamin Martin, I understand you used to be a patriot.



Benjamin Martin:
If you mean Patriot then am I angry about taxation without representation well yes I am. Should the American colonies govern themselves independantly? I believe that they can, and that they should. But if you are asking me, am I willing to go to war with England? Then the answer is most definately NO!

When a new source of taxation is found it never means, in practice, that the old source is abandoned. It merely means that the politicians have two ways of milking the taxpayer where they had one before.More [07/28/2011 05:07:01]

I therefore declare, that if you wish any remission of the taxation which falls upon the homes of the people of England and Wales, you can only find it by reducing the great military establishments, and diminishing the money paid to fighting men in time of peace.More [10/01/2011 01:10:26]

I agree with Howard on this. You look at any culture and prohibition has invariably been unmitigated failure. It is just idiotic to criminalize any substance, I think. It needs to be controlled, managed. If you legalize something then you use the taxation from the sale of that drug to help people who become addicted to those substances. It is not going to go away. The way on drugs is being lost on a daily basis.More [11/15/2011 03:11:14]

...it may fairly be doubted if any political tyranny ever imposed on its people such a fear, such a longing for freedom, such a paralysis of the spirit, as disease. I doubt if the average Englishman felt himself as much oppressed by Charles I as by the plague; or if any colonial American was as much in dread of taxation without representation as of smallpox.

The tax upon land values is the most just and equal of all taxes. It falls only upon those who receive from society a peculiar and valuable benefit, and upon them in proportion to the benefit they receive.It is the taking by the community for the use of the community of that value which is the creation of the community. It is the application of the common property to common uses. When all rent is taken by taxation for the needs of the community, then will the equality ordained by nature be attained.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
