Book Synopsis
Thomas Paine is in our estimation the least appreciated of the founding fathers of America. More than anything or anyone else, his writings were responsible for the colonies' united decision to break from England.

The two works he conceived and published in Boston in 1776, Common Sense and The American Crisis, were responsible for the Continental Congresses united decision to serve King George with the Declaration of independence and to immediately begin the Colonial Revolution.

He wrote, “As a long and violent abuse of power is generally the means of calling the right of it in question, (and... had not the sufferers been aggravated into the inquiry,) and as the king of England hath undertaken in his own right, to support the parliament in what he calls theirs, and as the good people of this country are grievously oppressed by the combination, they have an undoubted privilege to inquire into the pretensions of both, and equally to reject the usurpations of either.”
