Why I choose the Patriots and not the Loyalists. It will be terrible if we separate from England. We will be much better off without England. We still need England's guidance and protection. True freedom can only come if we don't have a King. No one should have to pay taxes unless they vote for the representative that helps determine the tax. Patriots object to taxes because they don't want to pay them. What will Happen What will happen if everyone is on the Loyalist side and not the Patriot side. If we were to all become loyalists bad things would happen. We would not be an independent country, we would be ruled by a King, and we would not have religious freedom. I just named three terrible things that we could still have. Do you want those things to happen, because I don't. What if we were still ruled by a King? There are so many what if questions that I am asking myself. If those are just three of things and we know there are more, what would our country be like today? All of these things are what would happen if everyone was on the loyalist side instead of the patriot side. Religious Freedom Free Rights Democracy Life before the Revolutionary War Life before the Revolutionary War was not a happy time. All of the colonists were furious because of taxes. They came to America to be free, not to pay taxes. They were not happy and wanted to rebel against the idea of taxes. They were able to tolerate the paper tax, but the tea tax took it to far. Living in the time before was not somewhere you would really want to be. If I am ruled by a king, I am not free. I have the chance of having my rights being taken away. I also don't really have freedom, and that is what most people came to America for. If these people came to be free, then they don't want taxes. The king is making them pay taxes on paper products and tea which made all of the colonists furious. The people did not have a say in the decisions being made by the king. The king is taxing the colonists, yet the colonists don't have a say in the decisions being made. The king will also not make the right decisions for the colonies. Only the people of the colonies can make the right decision.
