According to Fox News host Mark Levin, Americans were more free before the Revolutionary War than they are now.
On his low-rated weekly show, Levin insisted that the colonists had it much better when it came to representation from King George III than they do in today’s Congress:
We also have the internet, and a person can easily go online and read what’s in every piece of legislation that’s proposed in both the House and Senate. But that requires someone doing some work of their own instead of having it all spoon-fed to them the way most right-wingers seem to demand.
For anyone to suggest we were freer under the dictatorial rule of King George III — who demanded we pay taxes but refused to give us representation in the British parliament — is not only disingenuous, it also bogus and an outright lie. Then again, all conservatives and those who support Donald Trump have are lies and conspiracy theories.
Here’s a suggestion for Mark Levin: If you’re so unhappy here in the United States, pack up all your shit and move. I’m sure you’d be warmly welcomed by Vladimir Putin until he tired of you and had you shot just outside the Kremlin.
