Aleksi: need to correct. You rebelled against British Central Bank. Then you rebeled against it another 3 or 4 times, and unfortunately lost completely in 1913 with the creation of "Federal" "Reserve" "Bank" (which is a private cartel, neither Federal, nor Reserve, and not even a Bank, who prints dollars for a fee whic his rolled as debt, which is why US is in a permanent debt).
Educate yourself, and hopefully there will be enough educated folks to REBEL (at least against another tax) this time around.
Aleksi, you need to check that again. I agree with your thoughts about our central bank, not a big fan myself. However, the revolutionary war was really about the authority of the crown government to tax the colonies. The colonies felt because we were not represented in Parliament that the taxes imposed were not valid. Granted, it was a small group that felt this way but the government reacted so badly, time and again, that it actually caused more people to come over to the rebel cause.
Greeting from Virginia - home of Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, George Washington, James Madison, George Wythe and other tax hating traitors to Great Britain ;-)
