Not at all like those "petulant children" of 1776. More like street gangsters and thugs in Chicago, New York, Las Angeles, and a hundred or so other big cities in America. Or perhaps they are more like the warring drug lords in Mexico. Any way, your comparison is ludicrous. In 1776, we did not bomb England, shoot English citizens on English soil or commit murder to get what we wanted. We already had the land, not on the English island. We just wanted to be treated fairly by the king, and would have remained loyal to him if he had not been a tyrant.
