(This part continues my discussion from Part 3 concerning the history of the American Revolution relative to the conclusion that freedom cannot be restored within the federal system as the union currently exists.)

While colonies’ mental resistance rose against their government, physical submission prevailed. The colony of New York “begged to be excused from making the provision [of tax]” to Great Britain.”[1] But instead of recognizing New York’s right to govern itself regarding internal polity of taxation and regulation, “the legislative power of that colony was abolished by act of parliament, until they should submit to make the provision which was required.”[2] In essence, parliament acted as the “supreme law of the land” and nullified the colonial authorities to govern themselves internally. And yes, New York “did submit” as did the other colonies. [3]

The colonies were feeling the burning sensation of oppression in their hearts and were sending correspondence to the king’s governors in the colonies and to the king himself, hoping for constitutional relief. Courts were no help. The means of redress was set forth by their constitution and they were following it. They were making lawful appeals. No relief came, however.
