What does Paine mean by the sunshine patriot?

He means those that stand for an ideal when it's 'easy' to stand for an ideal. For example: It's easy to brag to your friends that you are a fan of a certain musical group when they are on top of the charts. But what about when their album sales plummet and the lead singer is convicted of homosexual pedophilic beastiality and methamphetamine abuse. Well, it's kinda hard to wear their tour shirt out in public. Right? Then that would make you a "sunshine fan". You're touting their praises when everything is good but when the circumstances get difficult--- well, you get the idea.

What did Thomas Paine do in the Revolutionary War?

During the Revolutionary War, the colonists split into sides. They were either loyalists (they wanted to stay under the King of England's rule), patriots (they wanted their own government), or neutralists (they didn't really care). Thomas Paine then wrote a short book called Common Sense, which was literally about common sense. He said logically that the colonists were being treated unfairly by the King and it was common sense that they shouldn't have to put up with it. This ultimately ended up convincing many of the neutralists and some of the loyalists as well to join the patriots' side. Without the extra support, America may not have become what it is today. That was before the Revolutionary War to provide justification to neurtral or undecided people to revolt against Britain. He also wrote The American Crisis to reprimand soldiers at Valley Forge who were quitting the army because of the cold. This pamphlet motivated them to stay strong so that their children could have peace.
