  • Yes It Was Right

    The reason why I think the British were right was because (1) It was immature for the British to throw over the tea that the British sent over for the Colonies to have (2) We taxed the Colonies so they had money to pay for clothes,food,fresh water ,and to pay for the tea

  • It was right for the British to Tax the colonies

    Because the British provided protection for the colonies during the French and Indian war. The Citizens living in Britain were already being taxed 20- 30% of their yearly wage while the colonists were only paying 1% or below. Therefore it is only fair for the British to tax the colonists.

  • They had the right to tax them.

    They had the right to tax them. The Government of Great Britain did have the right to control and regulate the colonists because they were once people of Great Britain so technically they should still follow Great Britain's rules and laws because they are still Great Britain's people. The British also have the right to control and regulate the colonists because according to The Royal Proclamation of 1763, the British Government had the right to the land west of the colonies (which the colonists eventually took over), and therefore the colonists should not be allowed west into the British territory. Finally Great Britain had the right to control and regulate the colonists because Britain was trying to maintain peace, and the colonists were not.

  • British had the right to tax

    Colonist gained things. It was for their protection. Though they had no say in Parliament(idk how to spell) Britain was on the other side of the world. To get there by ship would take a month and they would have to go back another month. Eventually they would just live in britian and then they are not a colonist anymore. Also thr french were in canada and the colonist need protection.

  • The British did have the right to tax the colonists.

    After the French and Indian War plus the Seven Years War in Europe, Great Britain was left with many debts. The King and Parliament thought it was fair to tax the colonists. And, even though the colonists thought that the taxes were unfair, the British citizens in Great Britain had to pay 28 times the amount that the colonists had to pay.

  • Britain DID Have the Right to Tax the Colonies

    Money. What is money? Money is the basis on which everything in this world revolves around. A government needs money to function properly. When Britain spent most of their money on NECESSARY things, such as the French and Indian War, Parliament NEEDED money to survive as a country. All regular British citizens had to pay taxes, and they didn't have a choice, so why should the colonists? The bottom line is: Parliament needed money to survive, and taxing the colonists were the only way they could achieve that.

  • 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?!?!

  • They have no right to tax the colonists

    They have no right to tax the colonist because King George is not our king and we thought it was unfair that the brithish got to tax us so we lead a protest cry that said no taxation without representation and also we never voted for paliment and parliament tells us what to do

  • No Taxation without Representation!

    After the French and Indian war, when the British won the French were forced to leave their land. The British then had laws passed between 1763 and 1775 that regulated their trade and taxes. They passed many acts such as the Stamp Act, Quartering Act, Townshend Act, Sugar Act, Tea Act, Intolerable Act, Declaratory Act, Quebec Act, and much much more. Not did it include this but also the Writs of Assitance which allowed officers to check your home with little suspicion for smuggled goods. These acts and laws not only invaded their privacy, but invaded their rights! (I do agree that without the British doing this, we wouldn't be where we are today.) If I were in the time though, I would have done exactly what they did. Boycotting, and the Boston Tea Party! It was harmless besides the point of them destorying property.

  • Hehe :3 0~0

  • They had to pay

    They had to pay because they was on the British land and if that was me I would just give up because who will want to fight for 7 or 4 years of a war? And they said no and want to keep it for them self and rather figth for war.

  • No it was not
