Col. Harry Burwell:
This is not for the independence of one or two colonies, but for the independence of one nation.
Tell me Colonel what nation is that?
An American nation!
There is no such nation and to speak of one is treason.
We ARE citizens of an American nation! And our rights are being threatened by a tyrant three thousand miles away!
Tell me, Mr Howard, why should I trade one tyrant three thousand miles away for three thousand tyrants one mile away? An elected legeslator can trample a man's rights as easily as a King can.
Col. Harry Burwell:
Benjamin Martin, I understand you used to be a patriot.
If you mean Patriot then am I angry about taxation without representation well yes I am. Should the American colonies govern themselves independantly? I believe that they can, and that they should. But if you are asking me, am I willing to go to war with England? Then the answer is most definately NO!
