    GW loved individual freedom until it came down to Pennsylvania's farmers freely turning their corn into Whiskey that threatened the RUM business' cozy little monopoly (slaves -> sugar-> molasses -> rum ) market.

    History shows us here that the USA's masters sided with international trade capitalists against American citizens' small local businesses.

    Thomas Paine's journalistic endeavors into the usurpations of the crown helped inspire thousands in the continental army. This was a very literate army also.
