George III, King of the UK; King of Hanover, Germany, about whom the US Declaration of Independence states: “He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.”
From 1775 to 1783 the United States of America fought a fierce war against a German King George III, ruler of the UK, and against his 30,000 German soldiers and won its Independence. The USA had to fight the same King again, in the War of 1812, from 1812 to 1814 to secure its independence.
Most of the rebel soldiers of the American Revolution, and the War of 1812, or their ancestors, would have been deportees or other exiles, from their UK homeland. Many were deported from their Scottish homeland subsequent to the 1715 and 1745 Jacobite Risings, in favor of a Scottish monarch, against the German father and grandfather (Kings George I and II of England) of this King (George III). The USA also fought against Germany in Two World Wars, and supposedly was on the winning side against them, though we are starting to wonder if the Nazi-Axis really won World War II, and not the Allies. Were we sleeping through History or was Obama? We thought that the Americans were on the winning side of the American Revolution, the War of 1812, World War I and World War II? Are we missing something? Obama has already allowed the burning of German radioactive waste in Tennessee, USA (2013). He has apparently already approved the import to South Carolina of nuclear waste from (Royalist) Canada, whose Queen is still a German-British Monarch. Something is afoul. Something smells rotten.
About 30,000 German soldiers fought for “British” King George (and lost) during the American Revolutionary War. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hessian_(soldiers)
(Doesn’t the guy on the left look like (King?) George Bush, very distant cousin of German-UK Queen Elizabeth? Obama is also allegedly her very distant cousin.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germans_in_the_American_Revolution
Now will Americans allow Germany to dump High Level German Nuclear Waste in South Carolina–one of the original colonies, whose people fought valiantly and defeated a German King and German soldiers during the American Revolution?
Does US President Obama take his supposed kinship with the UK’s Queen Elizabeth II of the German House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, descended from this same German King George III, too seriously? Queen Elizabeth’s grandfather, George V, changed his name to Windsor, during World War I, to hide that they were a German Royal House. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Saxe-Coburg_and_Gotha
To Oppose the dumping of German Nuclear Waste on the USA: Before July 21, 2014, please contact: Mr. Andrew Grainger, firstname.lastname@example.org, NEPA Compliance Officer, U.S. Department of Energy.

John Trumbull’s painting, Declaration of Independence, 1819
“George III (George William Frederick; 4 June 1738 – 29 January 1820) was King of Great Britain and King of Ireland from 25 October 1760… He was concurrently Duke and prince-elector of Brunswick-Lüneburg (‘Hanover’) [Germany] in the Holy Roman Empire until his promotion to King of Hanover [Germany] on 12 October 1814. He was the third British monarch of the House of Hanover, but unlike his two Hanoverian predecessors he was born in Britain, spoke English as his first language…” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_III_of_the_United_Kingdom
In other words, George III’s father (George II) and grandfather (George I) were born in Hanover Germany, grew up in northern Germany and obviously spoke German from childhood. (George II learned French first, and then German at age 4: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_II_of_Great_Britain) No wonder the Jacobites rebelled in 1715 against George I and in 1745 against George II to put a Scottish King on the Throne, as opposed to a German King! Many of these Jacobites, after being deported to America, had to fight George III! This time they won! Will they win against the German nuclear waste?
“By 1776 about 85% of the white population was of English, Irish, Scottish or Welsh descent, with 9% of German origin and 4% Dutch… Immigration was a minor factor from 1774 to 1830.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirteen_Colonies
Note that most of these 9% “German” American colonists would have been religious refugees fleeing persecution, seeking religion freedom, from various German speaking regions in Europe, including not only modern day Germany, but also modern-day Switzerland and Austria. They certainly did not want to be oppressed by a German monarch either!
It’s not just Australia that was a prison colony. Before Australia, those who revolted against the crown, as well as criminals and the mentally ill were transported, i.e., deported first to Ireland and the Caribbean, then too to the American Colonies. http://www.oldbaileyonline.org/static/Punishment.jsp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transportation_Act_of_1718 The Declaration of Independence condemns King George: “For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury: For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences“, among a lengthy list of offenses. (See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dress_Act)
“IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
The 56 signatures on the Declaration appear in the positions indicated” (See names here: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html
