Eight of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were born in Britain. They signed anyway. No matter your background, your family, your experience (or lack thereof), you too can choose independence. How?
When George Washington read the declaration on the steps of City Hall in New York City, the crowd (that same day) pulled down the statue of George III. The statue was melted into 42,000 musket balls to fight the British.
So if you have history, family/friends, memories, material possessions, etc. that have become intolerable or just unsupportive of who you are…choose this very moment.
And go make musket balls.
