We will send this signed petition to England and wait for a response.
"He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislatures."
I do not care if they do not like the armies there.
"In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury."
just throw it away.
Parliament has been sent another petition from the colonies.
"For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments."
The king has kept the armies in the colonies even though there is no war. They are there without the consent of the colony legislatures. I think that the king should remove the armies because they have no permission from the colonies to be there.
Even through all the bad things that happened, the colonists were always trying to reason with the british. They tried many times to petition instead of violence, but the king would never listen and ignore these pleads.
The British want to control the colonists and not let them make any of their own laws. The king had destroyed and abolished the laws that the colonists have created for themselves. The king and parliament didn't like that the colonists were trying to govern themselves.
