The British didn’t pull out of the colonies in 1776. Hell, the Revolution didn’t end until 1783. The Declaration was more of a “hey Britain, fuck you!” and a declaration of what they wanted to do.

I’m tired of seeing everyone bash on just “communism” instead of going after the specific governments themselves.
