i dunno what that other dude's smoking, the whigs were AGAINST britain, not for it. the american revolutionaries were called whigs after the whigs of britain who were most supportive of liberty, whereas those who supported the british were called tories, for the british party most opposed to liberty. how sad that no one knows these things.
benedict arnold pretended to be a whig, but in reality he was a rank tory
