Mr. Blackwell is wrong. The Revolutionary War was not a revolution at all. In a revolution, the government in power is overthrown and a new one chosen by the revolutionaries is installed. The colonists were not trying to overthrow the crown and Parliament of Great Britain, they were trying to untangle themselves from their bondage to the British Empire so the colonists WERE seceding. They had no desire to rule over the entirety of the empire themselves, just their small portion of it.

NO WAY! Scroll up a couple of posts to see where libs_are_useful_idiots totally shot down your argument, Joseph. Mr Blackwell is totally right. Chris, I can't believe your agreeing with him.

Congressman Ron Paul has just delivered his valedictory address in the House of Representatives. And he has told TV interviewers that the American Revolution was a wonderful example of secession.
