Colonies Quotations

Once vigorous measures appear to be the only means left of bringing the Americans to a due submission to the mother country, the colonies will submit.
George III

The Stamp Act was a direct tax imposed on the colonies by King George III. This act inevitably led to the American Revolution. Just as the Stamp Act did in 1765, Obamacare should act as a wake-up call. Chief Justice Roberts provides us with a similar call to action.
Rand Paul

We lost the American colonies because we lacked the statesmanship to know the right time and the manner of yielding what is impossible to keep.
Queen Elizabeth II

We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies. The colonies would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories.
Cecil Rhodes

If the Founding Fathers and other patriots who fought during the Revolutionary War could see the United States today, I believe they would be proud of the path that the thirteen colonies, now fifty strong states, have taken since then.
John Linder
