    Some fifty-five-gallon drums held 63 gallons. By actual calibrated measurement.

    And before someone asks why the US did adopt the SI or Metric system at this nations founding, it wasn't invented or standardized until much later.
    After the American Revolution, England had to burn her basic documents, or there would have been a civil war at home. The colonies broke away because they read the documents that were created during Englands revolution from Rome. They, of course, recognized that taxation was the devil's work and not part of a healthy society.

    That is what England had figured out, that a country with real men as leaders naturally guaranteed a fortune for all its citizens. In other words, a countries citizens are naturally wealthy; poverty requires a lot of hard work by the devil to pull off.
    That is because it is hard to tell smart, wealthy individuals to do stupid things. While poverty often allows a fool with a few dollars to make the incredibly stupid possible.

    Paying taxes is not a right or Godly act, it is doing the devils work.
