America’srevolution came a time when they were fighting for freedom and changefrom their colonialists in the years 1765-1783. The United Kingdomwere their mother country as then called Great Britain. The Americansturned against the overruling government and established theirindependent ruling leaders and the United States of America. In suchinstances, the citizens are always at odds with a group supportingthe colonialists and another group sticking to the rebels. Patriotswere fully committed to fighting the colonialist for their freedomwhile on the other hand loyalists stayed subjective to those in powerthese were the supporters of Great Britain (Breen, 1997).
Asa peasant farmer, I would be very disappointed to lack a source ofincome. I will argue and say if you cannot beat them join them, thatis, the British surpassed we Americans and therefore as a loyalist Iwould always follow their laws to ensure I meet my basic life. Acolonialist will always be an egocentric individual and will alwaysdo all he can to better his life. Because of their rule, no Americanturns out to be smarter than the other and thus life is kept smoothlyon the scale. I operate under the crown without any minds ofrebellion and so the other loyalists. We would never turn against ourmasters because they help us get the market to our raw tea as thesupplies are taken by the East Indian Tea Company (Morrison, 1923).
Moreso, no Troy citizen would be determined to turn against King Georgebecause we are all aware of the punitive actions that may accompanysuch disobedience. A crofter with no much benefits from thegovernment and levied with hurt tax would never be insane and destroysuch product rather than benefit by taking it away. As we abide bythe crown, our joy is to see the East Indian Company grow andincrease the demand for the raw tea leaves for the manufacture of teaproducts and thus, a source of income to us farmers. Increase inprices meant high demand for our farm materials and thus loyaltieswould support instead of betraying such an order from the King(Jensen, 1995).
