The American Revolution and the New World Order

The Revolution began with protests over taxes, it ended with the creation of a new idea about political power. How did the Americans create a new political system, based on majority rule but protection of individual liberty? In what ways did they succeed, and where did they fail? What impact did this Revolution have on the wider world?
