[COLOR=red]i guesss the best reason i can give u is
that the brits(england) were the dominant army at the time
nd many people doubted that america would win nd if they would win it would only be a matter of time till it fell back again
it was a, how can i say it nively, miracle that the US got its independence
kinda like saying " me nd dad killed a bear"
me being the US nd dad being the allies
"me" didnt do much did it?

Well, keep in mind that the American Revolution wasn't exactly a mass popular uprising in the colonies - there were plenty of people who believed that loyalty to England was very important, because after all, England is the mother country. Additionally, one of the biggest gripes the revolutionaries had - the Stamp Act - was repealed by Parliament! With that action, the colonists often had it easier tax-wise than people actually living in Britain at the time.
Also, please try to post your topics in the correct forum. Thanks. :)

soldiers not defending own country, but protecting colonists.

Um... use big pictures? :P
Really though, if you have 3 or 4 good ideas, you can definitely fill a political pamphlet. Just use lots of stereotypical patriotic bombast and you should be set. Something along the lines of: "Why should we, the colonists of Great Britain, be forced by the few hotheads among us to rise up against the benevolent mother country? Parliament has generously provided soldiers to protect us from the savages in the wild - why shouldn't we be willing to support those who are guarding us from vicious natives? Why should we demand even more tax cuts when Parliament has been kind enough to repeal the Stamp Act? After all, are we not Englishmen? Since we rightly are citizens of the glorious British Empire, it is only right that we chip in our own fair share."
See, there I've gone and practically written the whole thing for you and that only took me like 2 minutes. Plus, I didn't even hit on all the issues you mentioned.

Yeah; lots of "stretch" and a few very large pictures will pretty much fill the thing. Political writing is not known for being particularly rich in content.
