But the Conquered, or their Children, have no Court, no Arbitrator on Earth to appeal to. Then they may appeal, as Jephtha did, to Heaven, and repeat their Appeal, till they have recovered the native Right of their Ancestors, which was to have such a Legislative over them, as the Majority should approve, and freely acquiesce in.

Taxing Millionaires...

...will do almost nothing.  According to the CBO, the democrat-proposed surtax on millionaires will raise about $450 billion over the next ten years.  We are currently operating at a deficit of about $100 billion per MONTH.  Do the math; we can take money from millionaires and openly engage in class warfare and achieve a deficit balance for 4 out of the next 120 months.  Taxing millionaires more will help us make up 3% of the deficit over the next decade.  Wow.  Looks like the perfect solution...if your definition of solution is to do something that accomplishes close to zero % of your goal.  Of course, it IS the perfect solution if your goal is to continue the ruination of the economy, expand the number of people dependent upon the government, disincent the accumulation of wealth and foment lasting class warfare.
