Thomas Paine's Common Sense
In Common Sense Thomas Paine attacks the British government and they way they do things. He says that since a monarchy can have flaws it shouldn't be based on a hereditary system because the wrong people will end up in power. He doesn't agree with the idea of a king being in charge and says, "In America the Law is King". Paine also says that the Americans should call for independence now and that they could win a war against the British if they united. I believe that Paine is correct in everything he says especially that the law should be king. The law has no bias so it is a perfect "king". I also believe he was right on saying that America should call for independence and fight the British. Thomas Paine was a smart guy.
