Shay's RebellionLet us us not forget about Shays’ rebellion. Daniel Shay was a farmer and a former war veteran. Unfair governmental policies, which entailed high taxes and useless paper currency, caused him to lead a rebellion. Shays’ well-organized rebels lashed out against the central government. The rebels stormed places using guns, swords, and strong-armed tactics. They were even bold enough to mob courthouses. The rebellion caused our founding fathers to see that the articles of confederation were weak.
It's too bad for US Sovereigns and all Sovereigns that the result of Shay's Rebellion did not return to us more of our power and control.
Yours in Sovereignty,
