A Representative Government?

We have been taught in school that the Boston Tea Party was the result of taxation without representation, This is not totally correct. The reason for the Tea Party was not taxation without representation but legislation without representation. Parliament over in merry old England was making and imposing laws on the colonists without any colonists being represented in Parliament. This situation is what we find ourselves in today. Legislation without representation. The conditions that caused the Boston Tea Party are the same conditions we find ourselves in now! I’m just saying. Take a listen and I’ll let you know why I say this.
