238 years ago a major event that shaped america into a country occurred, this action was the Boston Tea Party. On December 16, 1773 colonist went aboard 3 ships and destroyed taxed tea that was suposed to be return to Britain, This event was a huge factor leading into the American revolution. This event was the cause of unfair taxation by Britain on its imported tea to the colonies which they appealed but weren’t being taken seriously until these actions occurred.
In all it has me thinking, why don’t we take action. Just like the colonist they fought against this law, they did it in a civilized way just to not be heard. Just as us in modern America, we aren’t being taken seriously. We went and protest just for the government to make jokes out of it, saying that the only thing we’re doing is annoying the people in the neighborhood, that the only people in the crowds are homeless bums and worst that they’re jobs out there but the only ones being made are for Subways, Starbucks and Mcdonalds. Those jobs aren’t gonna support a family, those jobs aren’t gonna allow you to live in house/apartment and for all the people who are busting their ass trying to obtain a higher degree those jobs won’t pay off your loans. America gets more and more in debt, they spend more money on wars then education, they talk about how people on wealth fare are stealing the cash when we have politicians making over 400 grand living in their mansions with a retirement package not getting anything done. Our social security is gone and healthcare reform never came close, this government is just shitting on us all and the future. We need a massive change or a new government in all.
