King George comparison

To the Editor:

I commend the Northwest Herald for printing the Declaration of Independence on July 4.

One section of the Declaration indicates that most American presidents of the past 100 years, with the exception of Coolidge and, perhaps, Reagan, are not all that different from King George.

To wit: “He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.”
