… oh, yeah, it was all of that business about not wanting to be burned as heretics or hanged in the town square for not joining the King’s church. Wonder why we minded, anyway.  It isn’t like the King’s government took our land, turned us out, put us in jail, or deported us by the boat-load.  Oh, right. Actually, they did all those things.

Now, 235 years later, looks like an American Theocracy is the Republican Right’s cure for what ails the country. I have to agree that executions are far cheaper than imprisonment.
