Through its patronage, the British Parliament declared itself the supreme authority arguing that, by definition, everything it did was constitutional. This is as offensive as it is repugnant to the rule of law. In my esteemed opinion, I believe that Parliament’s jurisdiction does not extend to the colonies since we have our own legislatures; the only connection between us is allegiance to the Crown. As Thomas Jefferson in his official address to King George III “…by the God that made me, I will cease to exist before I yield to a connection on such terms as the British Parliament propose; and in this, I think I speak the sentiments of America…” (Warren 297)

I, however, applaud Thomas Paine’s contribution in drafting his seminal pamphlet dubbed Common Sense advocating for complete emancipation from the colonial government (ibid).
