Tracing the history of the colonial-British relations, defend or refute this statement:
The American Revolution makes no sense.  From 1607 – 1775, the colonists, colonial governments, Parliament, and the King were all British – all under the umbrella of the same British laws and government.  The British government had every right to pass laws regarding the colonies.  Any British “demands” were reasonable and there is no logical explanation for the reaction of the colonists.
