    Tomorrow, Americans celebrate their independence from England. This independence was fought and won via what most consider to have been a rebellion. Our nation's beginnings were founded via rebellion against the British monarchy. The war that cost the most Americans their lives, was a war that was considered to be rebellion in the War Against the States. Today, we have people in the tax honesty movement who believe they are fighting against tyranny in a similar manner as the Patriots of old. Thus I ask, is there such a thing as a righteous rebellion? If you intend to celebrate Independence Day but think the Confederate States of America was wrong why? If you think the Patriots of the 1700s were right and think Ed Brown is wrong why?

    What if we think the patriots were right, we think the South was right in the War for Southern Independence, and that Ed Brown is right?

    At least right intent.

    You get bonus points for consistency. Now how do you reconcile it Biblically? Are each of those three instances actually rebellion, or are all three righteous causes and perhaps should be defined differently?

    We've gone from liberty to a unitary decidership all in the name of security.
