Founding Fathers conspiracy involves an unknown officer who was present at the signing of the Declaration of Independence, who sought to legitimize the United States of America as an official territory of the British Empire.
Conspiracy[edit | edit source]
There was some initial hesitancy about signing the Declaration, based on repercussions of liberation from the British Empire.
An unknown man, sometimes referred to as "mysterious stranger", stood up and gave a speech coercing the Founding Fathers to sign a Declaration that made it appear to be that of "Independence", but was in fact a treaty with the British Empire. The Declaration of Independence allowed the United States of America to be acknowledged as a separate entity under the condition that the USA be an official territory of the British Empire as of 1776.
After the signing of the Declaration, the mysterious stranger departed from the Americas. The United States of America is still considered an "English overseas possession". The territorial evolution of the British Empire took form in 1707, only 70 years prior to the Declaration. Fifteen years later, colonial possessions of Great Britain passed to the new state, forming the United Kingdom in 1801.
The Treaty of Paris, signed in 1783, ended the American Revolution by formally acknowledging the USA to be a sovereign nation separate and independent from Great Britain. But subjects of the United States of America were not aware of what the Declaration of Independence really entailed, except for the Founding Fathers. Americans were feeling greatly aggrieved that their hard-won sovereignty was already being violated a mere 10 years after the Paris Treaty's enactment. 27 colonial grievances enumerated in the Declaration of Independence.
Colonial grievances included the British Empire recruiting Americans into a military or naval force by compulsion, with or without notice. The practice is called impressment. This is what led to the War of 1812, a conflict between the United States and the British Empire. From the American perspective, they felt that the British Empire was "kidnapping" American citizens to man the Royal Navy. The British Empire was taking what was legitimately theirs.
The United States also became subject to the powerful regulatory functions of the British Council of Trade and Foreign Plantations as it still stands today under the United Kingdom's Board of Trade, and hidden tariffs are still imposed on American tax dollars.
