Short Bio
On January 29, 1737, Thomas Paine was born in Thetford, England. By the age of 12, he dropped out of school. After he dropped out, he tried to work with his dad but he failed with that also. So when he turned 19, he went to sea. After he was finished at sea, he met up with Benjamin Franklin and migrated to Philadelphia. Then he started his Journalism career. The book that he is known most for is “The Age of Reason” (1793-1994)

Thomas Paine beliefs were that the American colonist should be free from the British and so his idea of freedom helped the Declaration of Independence be formed. He also was a strong supporter of freethinking. He is controversially known for attacking institutionalized religion, and advocating deism. Another important belief, shown in Common Sense and Rights of Man (supporting the French Revolution), is that a government should always protect the citizenry and their rights and interests. He advocated revolution and independence if necessary.If he was still alive today i think he would fit in very well with society because his beliefs and ideas are sorta like what the government is like today.

Impact he helped the get the declaration of independence signed
