If you dig deep into the causes of our Revolution, you will discover that the primary cause was tax slavery. Our Founders said so time and time again. They called British taxes the "badge of slavery," and they weren't exaggerating or blowing off steam. When the Sons of Liberty (an underground organization throughout the colonies) paraded through the streets of New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, singing ballads against British taxes, the chorus that was repeated after the main verses was:

"Parliament's voice has condemned us by law to be SLAVES

Brave Boys!

Has condemned us by law to be SLAVES."
