Arguments for independence: - Says that England is a terrible mother country because who would treat their child like this? The king was doing what he wanted at his own discretion, nothing to do with the people and their benefits. - It is not practical for an island to rule a country; the ocean separates them so it did not make any practical sense because they could not be protected. - He goes into detail how now is the time for revolution because Great Britain has a navy but it is spread out too much so for them to call upon it would take forever and we had the passion. - A connection to England means a connection to wars with countries we are interested in being friends with. Every time that a war occurs our economy ends up devastated. Common Sense: 3 main ideas To have a king is unpractical and the new system of government that America is establishing is practical – checks and balances to someone who is elected by the people Having a king is morally and religiously wrong – g-d is the only true leader and king is trying to take the place of g-d and this is wrong. At this time in America’s history everything lines up with their patriotism and their army and naval to get independence now. We have the pride and courage to fight them while their navy is spread out so to call upon them would take a long time.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
