Moment of Decision 1776
My fellow English men and colonist, as men of this new world we must rise against the tyranny that has been plaguing this new world. we where given this land by our great king, yet are Being taxed by a form of govt that dose not let us have our say against the taxes bestowed on us, we must fight for our right to the land that was given to us by our great king and must ask him to take back the power of this great land and let us import our own choices of spices and goods, we where given the right by the king not Parliament so we should rise against Parliament with out war and take back our rights given to us by our English king. If you love you family, county, and freedom then you should come with this movement for freedom from Parliament
Rebel and be free. Opt~4
-They have murdered our fathers and brothers, burned our homes and stole our property.
-The brave souls who came to find the religious freedom and economic opportunity they were denied in England
- Britain has not protected our interests, but its own
-We don’t need Britain help any more because we're growing.
-Our trade would expand to a greater way.
-Locke mentioned a social contract but he believed the government shouldn’t raise taxes or lay claim without agreement.
-Many people like locke were upset about the laws that were upset about laws that were passed without their consent.
-”The state of nature has a law of nature to govern it, which obliges every one: and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind that all being equal and independent no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty, or possessions.”- Locke
-Locke believed that if the government broke the social contract, the people could turn on the government.
there is really no way to split apart from the country that gave us the chance to make this land ours and spread the word of the king, it would also create a lot of tension because the mother country would think we would rise above great Britain and take over their country. so no their is no possible way to separate from the mother country and not cause violence
The rebels In the colonies will be sorely mistaken if they believe that separating from Britain is the right plan. Staying loyal to the king is the best plan that we have in the colonies. Britain has the largest navy and arsenal to fight with. Britain gives us land and money to support us and leaving would show how ungrateful the colonies would be. If we leave Britain we lose major economic benefits and protection that we have been guaranteed by the king and Britain.
The taxes that we pay in Britain to finance this protection and self government are much lower that the people in Britain pay. This strong military and fighting force can be turned on us as quickly as it can help us if we decide that we want to leave Britain. As well as material benefits we have a religious obligation to stay loyal. It is not right to rebel against the mother country.
Our greatest act of patriotism, unlike the rebels who call themselves patriots, is to stay loyal to our king and accept the help and protection that he gives us. This system has been in place for many years before us and should not be thrown away just like this. If the rebels do succeed, we will be left in a mess of argument, disorder, and tyranny. The kings and parliaments control over the colonies keeps them unified and in peace.
Concerned citizen Charles St. James: I am heavily in debt with British merchants and they are not allowing me to repay our debt so therefore I can not make profit, so by siding with the king, will they help me resolve this problem and loose some of my debt or help me make fair trades to make profit.
