Blue,

thanks for coming back to the topic.

If King George had read the DoI and asked himself the same questions and come to the conclusions that the colonists were "full of it" and that they had not proven any of their contentions and accusations, would it have made one whit of difference to the signers? I suspect it would not have because the signers of the DOI had fixed in their own minds the reasons for declaring independence ( seceeding from the crown?)

In the same way, the folks in the seceeding states, rightly or worongly (opinions vary!) had decided in their own minds that the bond was broken and they had the same rights of declaring their independence from Washington as their grandfathers had in declaring thier independence from London.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
