For the most part, this paper uses pamphlets written prior to 1776. After this date the debate on the political issues was obscured by the issue of independence and the battle for the loyalty of the colonists.

The intention here is to examine the political thought of the American colonists who supported the authority of the British Empire to discover what motivated that decision.
