which of the following and hear the potential answer our

00:22

calls Okay well this one's really not too tough As

00:26

long as we keep in mind that the main point

00:28

of common sense was that the colonies had the right

00:30

to rule themselves Got that tattooed on your brain Good

00:33

And just to be clear shmoop does not recommend you

00:36

tattoo your brain unless you tattoo the words common sense

00:38

on your brain Well then that's Just kind of funny

00:40

in an oxymoron Ish kinda way Emphasis on the moron

00:44

All right so first let's take a look at option

00:46

a The articles of confederation were a post revolution thing

00:49

that established america as a confederation of sovereign states Not

00:53

only were the articles have bad idea that didn't work

00:55

out but they also don't work out is our answer

00:58

Like we said common senses about how the colony is

01:00

On a separate from england it's not about the way

01:02

america out of govern itself You can't be worried about

01:05

how the u s should be organized until the u

01:07

s actually exists Well you can but worrying about the

01:11

governance of imaginary countries this kind of unnecessary like worrying

01:14

about alien invasions there's no chance that a lever you

01:19

are moving on we can eliminate d for the same

01:22

kind of reason the u s was already established By

01:24

the time his first president gave his farewell address there

01:27

wouldn't have been much point in george washington calling for

01:29

independence from england when america was like already independent from

01:33

england We also happen to know that washington's farewell address

01:36

was about the dangers of political parties Ah isn't it

01:39

nice to know the us took the advice of one

01:41

of its most important founding fathers Heart c is the

01:44

best option we've had so far The bill of rights

01:46

did touch on what seemed like basic human rights today

01:49

but again bill of rights came after the american independence

01:52

and didn't need to encourage colonist to say yes sayin

01:55

are to the brits looks like option b is the

01:57

only one left like it's more famous cousin The declaration

02:00

of independence Common sense argued that the colonies should fight

02:04

for their right to govern themselves and that they did

02:08

Luckily everything is now totally cool between the americans and

02:11

the brits Just don't ask him which version of the

02:14

office is better That's a debate that will never end
