This paper examines how Thomas Paine, in his treatise "Common Sense", argues persuasively that it is only common sense for the American colonists to rebel and to fight for freedom from England. It discusses how he acknowledges that no matter what choice the colonists make, they will face many difficulties. It analyzes some of the points put forward in his argument such as that England is so far from the colonies and has so little real knowledge of them and therefore cannot rule the colonies intelligently.
