The Whiskey Rebellion: The U.S. was never free, even from the beginning.Submitted by ryno.t1985 on Sun, 09/23/2012 - 16:37
I have a book on the Whiskey Rebellion by William Hogeland that happened in 1791 in Pennsylvania. I think every libertarian should read it because it parallels with things today, like the Drug Laws. It talks about how the U.S. government, led by Washington and Hamilton tried to tax and outlaw the production of Whiskey farmers were making and selling on their own, which they rebelled against. The Federal Government came in and put down their rebellion. So even from the beginning of this country we had a tyrannical Federal Government.
