Secondly, Britain will only leave the future generations with debt. Lastly, the British rule has tyrannized the colonies for too long. One reason Paine gives the colonies to take up arms again Britain is because America would not have any enemies. Britain’s enemies, are America’s enemies, because the colonies belong to Britain. Paine writes “We have boasted the protection of Great Britain without considering that her motive was interest, not attachment; and she did not protect us from our enemies on our account; but from her enemies on her account” (Paine, 1776, p. 326).
Jefferson uses logos in the list because he’s using actually examples that the British king did, to appeal to the logic of the colonists, about why they are separating from Britain. A scholarly article through Penn State, written by Tim Burgoyne, also analyzed the Declaration of Independence. In his analysis he stated, “Further examples of logos is seen in the numerous grievances listed. Every single one of them is one reason why the colonies are choosing to separate from Britain” (Burgoyne). Once again, one can see the use of personification, done thru the capitalization of words, which emphasizes the importance of them.
Instead, America would only lose their only commerce attention, Great Britain. From another perspective, Chalmers thought England doesn’t want America to leave them for they may fell quickly after the independent. Therefore, they may keep a better relationship with America.

“ Give me liberty or give me death”,( Patrick Henry). The most well known speech given by the prestigious Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775 expressing his thoughts and feelings about fighting back against Britain and protecting their beloved country. At this time the British was defeating America terribly which had made Patrick Henry feel as though his freedom was being jeopardized. Patrick Henry’s speech was an attempt to persuade the american citizens not to just sit and do nothing, he wanted to fight back against Britain. Patrick Henry felt as though many of the citizens were not aware of the seriousness of what was happening and that the needed to have a wake up call.
History makes one want to speculate. One could speculate what would have been, had Germany, the United States and France not challenged Britain in the late-nineteenth century. Maybe Britain would have remained the dominant power in the world, and just maybe more of the world would be speaking English as their first language. However, during the course of the nineteenth century Britain was challenged by rival states. Therefore, this paper will focus on events and ideas that I considered most important, and which dominated Britain in the late-nineteenth century.
One Enlightenment thinker John Locke wrote Two Treatises on Government in 1690 which explained the right of the governed to overthrow their government if it denies them their unalienable rights. Revolutionary leaders followed this line of thought and used Locke’s theory of natural rights, life liberty and property, to justify their rebellion. During the time of Salutary Neglect colonies formed their own representative governments, which served under Parliament and applied colonial taxes. The colonists had no problem with taxes they just wanted their representative bodies to applied them, not Parliament with its virtual representation, During the dawn of the Revolution in 1776 Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense which spread republican ideals throughout the colones. This document, which sold 100,000 copies in 3 months quickly spread amongst the colonists and solidified their common political motivations.
He uses his feelings of anger and patriotism to portray how Germany would not take control over Britain. He mentions how mightier places such as “Europe and many old and famous States have fallen” to the Nazis, but he also believes that Britain “shall not flag or fail,” (Churchill). He shows his dominance in order to make the citizens feel safe and empowered. This outpouring emotion from the prime minister towards the audience, keeps them enticed during his speech. Churchill closes his speech by emphasizing that the British can go anywhere in the world to fight in a war, and win.
On 1796, George Washington’s Farewell Address states to future governments of, “...They serve to organize faction… The great rule of conduct for us to regard to foreign nations… to have little political connection as possible…” (Doc D) George Washington’s Farewell Address was a speech given to advice the future of the nation. George Washington's advice two things and one of them was no separate parties only as one. As the other was that nation of America should only focus on themselves rather than having political allies with foreign countries. Leading that foreign countries would be the downfall of America due it is the reason of leading a newborn into war. Meaning that America should only focus on themselves while they are still being built into a nation.
He chooses to spare the British people because they were “common kindred,” (2), “our British brethren,” (2), and suffered as subjects of the same tyrant. He omits a discussion of why treating the colonists better will benefit England, because he is not negotiating, and in doing so makes it clear that England is not his target
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.
