    The American colonists desire a more peaceful alliance with Great Britain but their British counterparts do not. The American colonists have a right to seek freedom from Great Britain due to the continued oppression of their basic rights. The American colonies could form a better government than the one established by Great Britain to govern them. The king of Britain and the members of British Parliament have little interest in the welfare of the colonies. The American colonies should have sufficient representation in British Parliament if America and Great Britain are to coexist peacefully.
