According to superb British historian Andrew Roberts, in his book The Last King of America: The Misunderstood Reign of George III, of the some 28 crimes of George III against the American colonists as laid out by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence at least 26 were outright lies and obvious propaganda and the other two at least questionable. This should tell us something about the subsequent Articles of Confederation and then the Constitution. You don’t have to be a present day lover of the British, who have come down a great deal in recent years, to admit being against the American Revolution lock, stock, and barrel. I certainly do — both before this excellent book on George III and even more so afterwards.
