Ben Martin’s American Revolution Recap

Kim and Producer Steve note the American Revolution was a revolt against taxation without representation.  Today we have taxation with representation, which begs the question, “Who is being represented?”  Be diligent in the usage of words and counteract the narrative in place by the radical left.  When freedom of speech is shut down, we are in a dangerous place.  HB21-1207 Overpayment Of Workers’ Compensation Benefits and SB21-197 Workers’ Compensation Physician on the surface looks benign but the devil is in the details.  The 2020 Census shifts district seats from blue states to red states.  Colorado gains 1 Congressional District seat.  Election integrity is of extreme importance.  Term limits are debated.

Jason McBride, Vice President with Presidential Wealth Management, comments that the markets continue to move upward.  Now is a good time to plan for the future, and a ROTH account could work well into a financial portfolio.  Pay taxes now instead of at higher rates as Biden introduces higher taxes.  You can do a ROTH conversion without cashing in your funds.  Give Jason a call at 303-694-1600 to discuss this strategy.

Guest Ben Martin gives a summary of the ground covered in his series starting with the French-Indian War up to the Battle of Bunker Hill, including the formation of the Continental Army.  Ben then explains how American patriots made their way to Charleston, South Carolina.  After the Boston Campaign, troops walked to New York City at which point Major General Charles Lee made defensive plans because a city surrounded by water would be difficult to defend against the British navy.  Lee is sent to Charleston and defends Charleston against the British under the command of Major General Henry Clinton and Commodore Peter Parker.  The American defense on Sullivan’s Island prevented the British ships from entering the narrow channel that led to the Charleston Harbor.  This American victory resulted in support from the southern colonists for independence.  Interesting to note that the revolutionary years are similar to today in that people are not given choices but were/are told what to think and say.  The Revolutionary War denied the right of power to a “King.”  Liberty is the responsible exercise of freedom.
