  2. That's a nice answer Alissa, but rather idealistic.

    King George was KING! Everyone knew that king's ruled -- and the people shouldn't have much power. In addition, the Colonies provided money for his treasury -- and who wants to give up a cash cow?

  4. George III refused to consider the colonists’ Declaration of Rights because he thought the Declaration of Rights was going against the British king and also he didn’t want people to have much power.
