Proverbs_12.15

Pro

Recently, on another discussion board, I came across an individual who claimed that the American Revolution of the late 18th Century was a case of unnecessary violence. Since I am arguing the status quo, anyone who would oppose me on this subject has the burden of proof.

negative construction

In the revolution we Americans fought because we had taxation without representation, this made lots of Americans angry and caused the revolution but are you saying a war justified because of over taxation?
The deaths of people because we didn't want to pay alot of taxes? Well I guess that depends on your definition of justicification.On another note the irony of justicification we so called Americans stole this land from the natives , then claimed it and then fought for our greedy prize,if that's is justice then there is none.

I stand ready for cross-examination.

Are you arguing EVERY action under taken by American rebels was justified?
