This dweeb is Dylan Matthews, and he writes for Vox. He started the year off with a short piece declaring that the Senate is undemocratic and should be abolished, which put him into the early running for the “Dumbest Post of the Year.”
This being the 4th of July, Mr. Matthews decided to try to top his own stupidity by trying to argue that things would have been better had we remained in the British Empire.
His reasoning goes like this
Slavery would have ended sooner
Independence was bad for Native Americans
Their system of government is better
Matthews tells us in the article that he’s flying to The United Kingdom today. I think he should stay there. His e-mail is given in the Vox article.
Dear Mr. Matthews,
I hope you have a pleasant flight to Britain. I just read you’re article in Vox this morning on how independence was a bad idea and I have come to the conclusion that you should just stay in the land of warm beer, boiled food and bad teeth.
