In Jonathan Boucher’s Argument against Independence he claims that Christians as a whole should not go against “human ordinances.” Boucher also goes on to say that his reasoning for this was that if they went against human ordinances, they would also be going against God. Boucher say “Obedience to the government is every man’s duty, because it is every man’s interest” especially Christians. He claims that trying to gain independence and liberty is actually going against liberty. In this reading I learned that not everyone views independence and freedom the same way. I also learned that when you fight for independence some people think you are going against God. I would like to discuss the way that they thought you were going against God if you wanted independence. In the Articles of Confederation the Delegates of the States go through and list the states; rights, abilities, and securities, the duties of Congress, and the finances of the United States of America. They made sure to make it clear what the states could and could not do. If they could not do something on their own they could ask for permission or help from Congress. There were of course certain circumstances where the states could act for themselves to protect their state but those are just a few special cases. They also made it clear what Congress was allowed to do and what they were not allowed to do. I learned what the setup for the States and Congress was like in the beginning time period for the USA. I also learned how some finances were handled before the USA became the USA and how those depts. transitioned over when it became the USA. I would like to discuss how the duties of the States and Congress has changes through out time. In John Quincy Adams speech on the Role of National Government he discusses the debts owed to other countries for their contributions to the United States success. He also talked about how we should honor those who have explored and he says that we should show an affectionate remembrance for these people. He continues and says we need more people like this to go exploring along the Pacific Oceans coast. He explains that we have to make advances in sciences. I learned that our nation wanted to be a front runner in every aspect it could be. I would like to discuss the explorations by the public that happened after this speech.
