  • For the most part? Yes!

    Honestly, I support the Revolution for a number of reasons (progression of Enlightenment ideals, helping spark the explosion of republicanism, etc.), but the most important reason to me is that of self-determination; yes, there was A LOT of economic interest involved, but the Founding Fathers and their supporters genuinely wanted to take control of their own national destiny.

  • The American Revolution Was Justified.

    In the 18th century, Britain began to tax the American colonies to pay for debt caused by the French and Indian war. Although these taxes were not severe, they were unjust, because the American colonies had no representation in parliament. But after the Boston tea party, British soldiers flooded into Boston, and colonists were forced to feed and lodge them, according to the Quartering Act. Boston harbor was closed, and large groups were forbidden to meet in Boston, laws put into place by the Intolerable Acts. The continental congress was formed and tried to reason with King George, in an attempt to keep the peace between England and the colonies, but he refused to negotiate, and sent troops to destroy some ammunition stored in Lexington. Thanks to Paul Revere and William Dawes, who warned the colonists, they were prepared to resist the British troops. The standoff developed into a battle, which had a huge impact on the colonies. The skirmish was the first instance of England attacking the colonies, and ignited the American Revolution. The colonies were justified to declare independence from King George, because he violated their rights by taxing them without representation, oppressed them with soldiers, and initiated the war. King George took away the American's freedom, and they had right to reclaim it.

  • Yes, it was justified.

    I am supportive of both American and British rights at this time. I am not supportive of a NWO though. I think God allowed this to happen to avoid a one world government, for then anyways, at this point in my life we are certainly heading back in the direction and America is treating the rest of the world as a superpower also. I'm sure many other countries are sick of America coming in and taking over their rights too. It's all part of the plan though. Rebel until the day Jesus Christ returns. In the book of Revelation 13 it does say,
    "16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[a] That number is 666." the end of all wars is what really matters. God has a plan. These verses show ALL men submitting to a similar authority. So governments will tear each other down until there is only one.

  • No, it was not justified.

    The Americans were doing fine with the British Empire. The only people that the revolution benefited was the wealthy. I'm sure there was a lot of freemason involvement as George Washington was one. These are the people that control the peons. There was nothing for the common man but more rules and bloodshed

  • Yes, The American Revolution Was Justified

    I’m a proud American, so of course I’m going to say that the
    American Revolution was justified. Many
    Americans were mad because they felt that they were victims of taxation without
    representation. Americans living in the
    colonies didn’t feel like they should have to answer to England when it was so
    far away.

  • It was not justified since the Boston Massacre wasn't actually a massacre.

    They all began to fire when that man hit a soldier on the head with a stick and his gun went off and only 5 people were killed and 7 injured. They were put on trial and found not guilty when john Adams was their lawyer and they were not put in jail or killed.

  • The colonies - the freeloaders of the British empire.

    Although the colonies certainly advocated ideas that I agree with, their reasoning and actions leading to the Revolution didn't seem justified.

    After the French and Indian War and salutary neglect ended, Britain decided to be a little stricter on the colonies. They tried to stop smuggling and give the colonies taxes that people in Britain already had (except much higher). The colonies, instead of simply accepting the light taxes and stricter regulations, retaliated and boycotted the British government. Eventually, it led to the Boston Tea party, where they dumped off ~350 chests of tea. This quickly escalated (Intolerable Acts, First Continental Congress, Lexington and Concord, and the Second Continental Congress) to a war. The colonies insisted that Parliament could regulate commerce, but that they couldn't tax, which honestly doesn't make much sense.

    In essence, the colonies were complaining over something that wasn't even that bad to begin with (with the exception of not having a right to a jury in trial) and broke away because they just wanted to have all the benefits of being part of a British colony and none of the responsibilities (like taxes).

  • No, the American Revolution was not justified.

    The American Revolution was not actually justified. Most colonists were angry because of all the Acts being passed. Parliament created the Stamp Act, Tea Act, etc. because they had a massive war debt to pay off after the French and Indian War. The Boston Massacre, which many people use to justify, was a retaliation on the soldier's part because of a mob of colonists throwing things and yelling at them. Although the Proclamation of 1763 was one of the main causes of the Revolution, it was in a way just. This Proclamation was made to keep colonists out of Indian territory to avoid another war.

  • Was it for freedom ?

    1] the patriots claimed to be fighting for their FREEDOM?. Yet they were ok owning slaving, beating up loyalist and burning down Native Americans villages who were the ones actually fighting for TRUE freedom.
    2] thousands of SLAVES infact actually escaped their patriot masters to fight on the British side of the war who in turn offered them freedom .
    3] TAXES- the British had just fought a war for the colonies benefit which resulted in huge mounts of debt, so it was only fair that they were taxed (which was still very small considering what Londoners were taxed). Plus they were eventually taxed anyway by their new government.
