This is funny. A group of British lawyers are arguing that the US Declaration of Independence was illegal. According to them, Americans did not have the right to secede and establish their own laws.
Geez, I wonder how they can live with the fact that Britain technically seceded from the Roman Empire in 410 CE after the Roman Army packed up and left.
By that logic, Rome is still the Capital of the World and we are all its citizens. Does anyone want to pay tribute to Ceasar? I didn't think so.
