The colonists were in every right, aspect and mind, not only justified, but also it was about time that they stood of and actually take action against the British. The choice of going to war with them, was the only choice that they had. All diplimatical options that they had ceased to stand a chance against the tyrant Britain. From the very beginning when the colonists felt upset against their mother country, and the way that they went about the law making up until the beginning of the war, they tried all diplimatical options that they had, by sending letters, you name it. When that didn’t work then they had no other choice, but to declare war.
