    As it seems, as in the above reply, the less words you use in a response indicates the same in reverse.

    Why? I have given you a perfectly coherent reply.

    Excuse the off-topic questions, but what would be an unlawful government and how is that determined? Did Gaddafi run the lawful government of Libya (before he was killed)? Or Assad in Syria?

    The colonials were rebelling against the legitimate and lawful government of those colonies i.e. they were British colonies and the colonials were subjects of the British Crown. I realise some present day Americans do not care to remember that fact, but that does not invalidate the fact at that point in history.

    The problem was that the government had acted contrary to the rights of British citizens. The government had lost its authority.

    Worse, the BLM and Antifa is led by Marxist revolutionaries to promote an oppressive system. I doubt their leaders have any desire to promote freedom in America.

    That doesn't answer the question. Colonists lived in the colonies, paid taxes in the colonies, fought in the wars to protect the colonies - but they belonged to Britain? You mean the colonies belonged to a bunch of anemic inbreds on the other side of the ocean? Why?

    I realise some Americans do not care to remember that fact, but that does not invalidate the fact.
    You didn't establish it as fact. I asked what differentiates "lawful" and "unlawful" governments.

    Not at all. The government was perfectly within its rights to raise taxes on its colonies [as it did in mainland Britain] to help pay for the war.

    Are you really so uninformed about the history of how those American colonies came to be established?

    The fact is that at the time the American colonies were part of the [then] fledgling British Empire.
