Bee-dubya-ell (in his first paragraph) beat me to it! I was going to say that if the colonists hadn't won the 1775-1783 Revolutionary War, they would've won a later one during King George III's reign. As George III sank deeper and deeper into mental illness, he would have done more and more things that would have outraged the colonists even further than they were in the 1770s (the Declaration of Independence demonstrates the popular view that he was personally responsible for their political woes).
