At the base of a strudy trunk on Washington, DC's tree-lined New Hampshire Ave, a small plaque sits unobtrusively among scrub and mulch. The plaque is small, you'd miss it if you weren't looking. It reads...
This Tree is dedicated to the more than half million veterans, taxpayers, and citizens of the District of Columbia who, despite fighting in foreign wars, paying their full measure of taxes and continue to have no voting representation in the Congrss of the United States of America.
"Taxation without Representation is Tyranny."
