Although I would prefer to pledge my allegiance to the King, I cannot. There are many reasons why I would side with Parliament instead of the King during the war. Some of those reasons are stated below.Taxes would be increased if I relied on the King. The King does not have the finances to help his people. Whenever he needs extra finances, he must go to Parliament. He would need to increase the taxes on many things that are essential to my business as a merchant. For example, Parliament is already in control of many parts of the country including the ports. Should the King be in control of the ports, he would tax me in order to use the port.

Since the population was more than the toners, the taxes would have been easier and less to pay. It would have been less because it would have been divided among the population. Parliament would have represented all the people and all the people would have shared equally in the tax. (Holmes 127)Another crazy tax that the King imposed was to have people buy titles from him. If they refused, a fine would be imposed. The fine would be the same as if the title was bought. The other ridiculous fine was that imposed on a person going to trial. This fine would be imposed even if you were found not guilty. (Holmes 134)The military would be at a disadvantage with the King. Men would join the King's military only because of their patriotism to their country. That...
