The government of the United States is a massive and complex organization. Its purpose is to improve and protect the lives of American citizens, both at home and overseas. Because its functions are so numerous and varied, the government operates on several different levels--national, state, and local. At each of these levels the government makes certain demands on its citizens. But this is only to promote the general welfare of the society as a whole.
The Battle of Saratoga in September and October of 1777 is the turning point of the Revolutionary War because the French joined with allies, British troops surrendered their arms, and the Patriots had crucial victories.

People who read it can feel connection as many of them hunted freedom themselves. However, it can be taken a little more deeper. Many people came to America in hopes of finding freedom, so it can be said that freedom already inhabited the area. Furthermore, the British were stopping it from thriving in the country with strict rules from a king thousands of miles away. But, did they really stop the thriving of freedom in America, or did they help it.
Spain’s main motivation to assist the American colonists in their revolution was a strong desire to regain the land it had lost to Britain during the French and Indian War and impede British success in other parts of the world. In April 1779, John Jay officially convinced Spain to join forces with the American people (Buescher). Rather than directly providing troops to fight alongside the Americans, Spain financed large loans and direct monetary contributions. Economically, this helped to start the Americans’ currency, the Continental, and allowed America to bring in expert foreign military officers to guide their inexperienced soldiers. Additionally, in 1779, Spain declared a war of their own against the British in Florida and Louisiana.
Albert Einstein - “I came to America because of the great, great freedom which I heard existed in this country. I made a mistake in selecting America as a land of freedom, a mistake I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime.” Some think American is grim, some believe America is glorious, some say it’s corrupt, and others will say it’s a mistake. However, in reality, America is whatever it wants to be. In America you can be whoever you want to be! We can be nice, we can be mean, we can be annoying, we can be fat, we can be racists, and we can be nuts!

What Americans really wanted was for life to be how it was before the British intervened after the French and Indian War. They were not fighting for entirely new ideas, they were fighting to go back to how they used to be. In theory, America was dependent on Britain long before the French and Indian War. However in practice, they did not follow laws such as the Navigation Acts and felt that they were sovereign. So when the American Revolution was started, Americans fought for Independence from Britain, which they though would return their country back to how it used to be since they thought they were sovereign and Britain had taken it way from
Personally, I would say being an American is when you can live a happy life where you don 't have to worry about being treated differently because of the color of your skin.
