More Evil Baloney at Disney's Hall of Presidents

•, By Tom Woods

It's only about 117 degrees.

So one thing I can say for Disney's Hall of Presidents: it's air conditioned.

The presidents, we are told, have been our "leaders of liberty."

It never gets much better than that.

The American Revolution is described as a struggle to "choose our own leaders." As if the problem with George III was simply that his office was hereditary.

The American revolutionaries were already choosing their own leaders. What they wanted was self-government — to be governed by their own colonial legislatures.

But when you favor centralized government in the 21st century, you'll naturally want to obscure the true meaning of the American Revolution, since it represents a wholesale rebuke of your entire position.
