Was it right for the British to tax the colonists?

  • Yes they were right

    After the French and Indian War the British were in serious debt, because of buying supplies for the soldiers to PROTECT the colonies from the French and Indians. Then on March 22nd, 1765 they made the stamp act a tax on paper from legal documents to playing cards. The money they got was gonna be used toward the troops to protect the colonies near the Appalachian Mountains(they were gonna put 10,000 troops there.) In conclusion the British were right to tax the colonists.

  • Yes the British had the right

    Since the colonists were being controlled by the British the colonists should have been taxed. The fact that they were taxed was not unfair is was the taxes that were put on them was unfair so those who say no and say Parliament was the problem, boo to ye I say

  • The had the right to be taxed

    The colonists were controlled by the British so taxing was needed. However, the way they were tax was unfair. Even the fact that they had no say in Parliament they were owned by the British had rights to tax the colonists. But the amount of taxes was not at all fair

  • Yes it is.

    It is due to the fact that the colonies where under control of the British which in turn gives them the right to tax the colonist. The reason America rebelled is due to already having too much freedom. So when a little of that freedom was taken away they rebelled.

  • No stooped they shouldn't pay

    The colonist didn't have the money and they didn't need the protection from the British soldiers. Besides how were they supposed to make money if Brittany gained more from what the Americans sold there. Not to mention Brittany wouldn't let them trade with other countries. And if God wanted Brittany to win and make America like Canada then god would make that happen but it didn't so suck it

  • Was it righr for the british to tax the colonies

    No because American wanted to do that by themselves. Some of the taxes that the British made were Intolerable Acts . These acts stated that the Brits can have whatever land they want to have. They would not care if the American colonists like this idea or not they need their fair share. Angry colonists began to protest against the British, that meant that they could not do some of the things that they would originally do.

  • No it was through the british parliment.

    They passed the lawes through the British parliment not through the colonist own government.SO it made it wrong for the colonist to be taxed if they had no say in it.And they were british citizens not british subjects.So it wasvery unfair for the British parliment to tax the english colonist.

  • No it was not!!!!!!!!!!

    England had the choice to defend the colonists or not defend the colonists. England chose to defend them and not only that but to pay whatever it took to get France out of the Ohio River Valley. The war debt they are in is their own fault and they should be paying for it themselves not making the colonists pay for it.

  • Why were they taxed

  • Yes But No

    Okay so the americans were under British control and have the right to tax, but not that much. People became broke because of too much taxation in the Colonies. There is a difference between taxation and taxing daly and with lots of money put into it that made others broke. And as a follow up, it should not be on everything, just some things. I mean come on! Paper, stamps, tea, molasses, etc. Seriously?!?!
