Sons of Liberty

I'm watching the series now and a couple of things really ring out to me....

1. The tea party sequence in episode 2. Being that Hollywood loves to take liberty with facts.... I'm really surprised that there weren't a couple of zombies, or vampires in the scene. I was almost expecting Sam Adams to don an Ironman suit and begin flying around the ship and start kicking ass....


2. It seems to me that since the beginning of our country, common folk have been fighting for the profit of the rich - John Hancock in example.

It may have been the greed of the British that caused the first American revolution, but it seems to me that those that profited most by our (common folk) defence of their right to make money are now the oppressors.

Makes you wonder.

they then become the nationalist who have built this country, on their own, when they've never done anything on their own, never went in to a situation that wasn't tilted in their favor, A hierarchy built on who stoled the most first, and are revered by sheeple because they've maintained it, when maintaining to them is unacceptable, and so more and more is consumed by less until it is only the 1% that exists . Vote Bernie put a screw in the natural order of things . .
