The argument truly needs a perspective of reality

Since the Pilgrims formed the first colony in 1620, there have been those that had ideals of independence and change. Real work started with the changing of culture and society to move in that direction about 1680. It took 111 years from 1680 to finally make this change a reality when the Bill of Rights was ratified in 1791. It did not happen overnight, not even close. Excerpt from a good source:

The Revolution was, in part, the consequence of long-term social, political, and cultural transformations. Between 1680 and 1776, a distinctly American society emerged, a society that differed significantly from Britain. In the course of a century, the colonies had diverged markedly from Britain. A variety of long-run trends gave the 13 American colonies certain common characteristics which made them very different from England.

We must use history as a common sense indicator to show how long it really does take to change a culture and society into a new direction. There is a whole lot of undoing that needs to be completed first. The credit goes to those that teach true history like the wise Dr Owens.
