List of Grievances

Page history last edited by Mr. Hengsterman 8 months, 2 weeks ago

 

The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of . . . the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these States. To prove this, let acts be submitted to a candid world.

 

He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. . .

 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing then into compliance with his measures.

 

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing, with manly firmness, his invasions on the rights of the people. . .

 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. . .

 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, without the consent of our legislatures. . .

He has [given] his assent to [these] acts of pretended legislation: . . .

 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world;

 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent;

 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury; . . .

 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments;

 

For suspending our own legislatures and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. . . .

 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns and destroyed the lives of our people.
