At around this time 246 years ago, 12 of the 13 colonies voted for independence…

…from Great Britain

John Adams to his Abigail:

The second day of July 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more”

Because the economy was good for the upper class under His Majesty's Government.

The delegates were supposedly unsure on how their constituents wanted them to vote so they abstained

Interesting. I've never heard about this or maybe just don't remember learning about it.

NYC was under British control the whole war. Those cucks have been cucks for 250 years.

Boston was uncontrollable and kicked the British out pretty quick during the war.

NY’s delegates had not yet received instruction from their constituent assembly on how they needed to vote. So they abstained.
