Main Idea of Declaration of Indepenence

Uploaded by aznd3m0n246 on Jan 06, 2006

The main idea of the Declaration of Independence is freedom. The Americans were tired by the British harsh treatments. Even though the British were the mother country, many Americans were deeply agitated by the incongruous tax laws, such as the Stamp Act and the Intolerable Act. Freedom was the first thing that came into the American¡¯s mind. The Americans did not care whether or not they lose their lives but rather they believed that a nation that controls itself is the most desirable gift an empire can have.

Many great men tried persuade the common people by writing essays and giving speeches. Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, Richard Henry are the most persuasive writers and speakers of all time. Not only did they ignite a fiery fire in the Americans, but also established a firm hatred against the British crown. ¡°Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose Character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the Ruler of a free People¡±. America wanted something from their mother, but the mother was the coldest, harshest parent alive. Unreasonable taxes were never abolished and American voices were completely ignored. ¡°He (King George III) has refused his Assent to Laws.¡±

If the British did not tax the Americans, virulent common men would never exist in America. A bloody war would not have occurred and history would have changed.
