Pritt and Burke obviously considered the colonists’ opposition to taxation by the parliament to be a form of rebellion for having been ignored for hundreds of years. The American colonies had been allowed to govern themselves with interference. Why should they have to be dictated to them now? Why should they have to make payments to a parliament that had nothing to do with them for hundreds years. “England could not afford to be left out of any acquisitions.
They introduced the resolution for the American Colonies problems with the British and were imposed to write it. The King of Great Britain was George the third. The Declaration of independence was a statement that was given purposes and a statement that would make many changes to give others their independence that they need. It was clear to many that what had been occurring for a long time was wrong and it was not going to keep being allowed as July 4,1976. The American Colonies needed the freedom and independence that Great Britain had and it was not write for the British to have control of it.
The American people were introduced to a new perspective whose consequences would be experienced even in the distant future. Americans started feeling that their fight for freedom wasn’t just local but global. Many democracies in the future would create the models of their governments on the basis of American government. Only a handful other events in the world have shaken up the existing order of the world like the success of the American
I am sure we all remember why we sailed on a voyage across the Atlantic and went through many hardships. That is so we can live in a land where we all can start a new life with better opportunities. But is that what we really have? It is clear that King George III is not treating us how he would treat his citizens when we are still his people. He’s ignoring our complaints and needs and is making up laws that are unfair and brutal.

The Constitution—the foundation of the American government—has been quintessential for the lives of the American people for over 200 years. Without this document America today would not have basic human rights, such as those stated in the Bill of Rights, which includes freedom of speech and religion. To some, the Constitution was an embodiment of the American Revolution, yet others believe that it was a betrayal of the Revolution. I personally believe that the Constitution did betray the Revolution because it did not live up to the ideals of the Revolution, and the views of the Anti-Federalists most closely embodied the “Spirit of ‘76.” During the midst of the American Revolution, authors and politicians of important documents, pamphlets, and slogans spread the basis for Revolutionary ideals and defined what is known as the “Spirit of ‘76”. Thomas Jefferson in particular wrote the Declaration of Independence, which stated “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator
After hundreds of years the thought of living in America and being able to live the “free” life, will never be as it was at one point in time. As sad as it is, the American government has been changing the laws that the founding fathers had made long ago and no matter what we do and how hard we try, America will never have the full freedom that was created in the very
From the news to everyday life the Declaration of Independence has a lasting effect on our nation.It is important to know how the Declaration of Independence was needed, was made, and what it said. In the first place, the Declaration of Independence was made to free the 13 colonies from the ravages of the British empire. When the war started between British troops and colonists at Lexington and Concord, very few people desired independence (“Declaration of Independence). The continuing British occupation made the colonists even more bitter; in addition, the colonists wanted self-government. However, the British were not wanting to grant them self-government
In addition, two revolutions are both caused by people who stood up against absolute monarchy. Then how could American Revolution accomplished more than French revolution? This is because, unlike French, Americans fought against the Great Britain to defend, preserve and return their natural (traditional) rights, which were originally theirs before the Great Britain colonized the land. On the other hand, French tried to change their already stabled government into government based on equality, liberty and fraternity, which is not existed at first (also called abstraction). Therefore it might be not as easy as change not stabled government into stabled
They felt that they shouldn't be restricted to expansion when they were just victorious in a recent war. The colonists viewed this new policy as an infringement on their basic rights and many ignored it and moved into the prohibited area. Other colonists figured that the proclamation was only a temporary solution. These events along with many other future restrictive measures by the government would start the American Revolution, which would forever change and shape our country by giving the colonies their independence from Great
