Dear Queen Elizabeth,
It’s been 239 years and we’re finally ready to admit we made a mistake. Just as your predecessor warned us, taxes are much higher, the government more intrusive and oppressive, and liberty more non-existent than it ever was under the British monarchy.
We’re willing to bury the hatchet and rejoin the British Empire with that sweet tax deal you had for us in 1775. Don’t worry about representation. We tried it. Taxes skyrocketed.
Everything else we complained about got worse, too. Representative government issues more general warrants than the king ever did. In most cases, it doesn’t even bother with warrants. It just vacuums up our electronic data and peruses it at its pleasure.
