“In the following pages I offer nothing more than simple facts, plain arguments, and common sense…The sun never shined on a cause of greater worth. ‘Tis not the affair of a city, a country, a province, or a kingdom, but of a continent of at least one eighth part of the habitable globe. ‘Tis not the concern of a day, a year, or an age; posterity are virtually involved in the contest, and will be more or less affected, even to the end of time…” – Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
