French global warming riots


What did our our country’s founders call it?

Lets look at the declaration of independence.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

[And then a long line of abuses are listed … including this one]

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:


There what is?


That’s because to work in government you must prove that you are a saint. No corruption allowed! :roll_eyes:


By that definition the govt has ALWAYS been abusive from the first moment of creation.


I can’t speak for other conservatives but I think what they are happy about is seeing the backlash against a carbon tax which is what this protest started as. But like many protests and movements they often morph into something different.

For the most part I don’t see republicans defending the alt-right movement, but it’s perfectly mainstream to not denounce Antifa or even defend them as they often do on CNN.


True dat. Give one man authority over another and that authority will be abused.


You need to produce more wealth not, tax your people more… High energy costs makes everyone poorer…


and guess what the protester want? a tax on the rich.


The problem is their tiny GDP… It’s the socialism. And gosh, they have over 9% unemployment. So, let make energy even more expensive, so only the rich can run a business etc…

Yes, great benefits, if you can get a job…
