    The colonists were kept from participating in the world market because they were under British rule. The infamous taxes didn't actually raise the taxes all that much, but stopped the American economy from being able to grow. Hence, revolution.

    Duh.  The colonies were under the rule of Great Britain.  Declaring yourself independent of the home country and therefore their ability to make laws for you is obviously an act of rebellion.

    God established the Divine Right of Kings and gave the American people into the hands of good King George III to rule them. Then an ungrateful populace rebelled against their divinely anointed king. And there you have it, as they say, in a nut shell.

    I have a better idea. You provide us with three reasons. Make sure they are clear and concise arguments with examples.

    Easy!  Some people in the English colonies rejected rule from England and backed it with armed force.  That is what rebellion is.  Bet you forgot to think.

    It is an act of rebellion against England.

    It's in the first sentence: "When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for a people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another..." That says that we are going to rebel, and here are our reasons why.
