Bush tells GOP it can't win anything with appeal to 'White Anglo-Saxon Protestantism'

Because the U.S. is a two-party system its form of democracy functions - though barely - due to their Constitutions of 1787. The Brits should be quite jealous with their one-party system of governing the Empire. Go BoJo go!

The catalyst for Magna Carta was the tyrannical rule of King John and, in particular, his imposition of arbitrary taxes upon the barons.

In 800 years not much has changed ... somewhere around 1773 King George lost a promising colony due to taxes and the revolt of the Boston Tea Party. The ghost of the Tea Party still roams the countryside and a revolt is always imminent as the militia are well armed.
