• We all have the right to rebel against tyranny!

    Whether that tyranny is in the form of taxation, unjust laws, lack of freedoms, no ability to self govern or any other demeaning jurisdictions.
    We all have the right to choose our coarse in this world! It seems that
    American's are a lot more subjugated by our rulers today then the colonist's were by British rule! I do realize the taxation that the British
    Imposed were being used to reimburse the motherland for costs ensued by the French and Indian war! I believe the British could have went about recouping this money more diplomatically. No matter
    Which of us is right the colonies needed to be ruled by colonist's.

  • They had no other choice and the British government was being oppressive

    They were being treated very poorly, so I believe that it was 100% fine for them to rebel. Plus by this point in time the British government was being very oppressive with the stamp act, and after the Boston massacre the British had head enough and started treating the colonists like prisoners. The colonists at this point had no other choice unless they wanted to be treated like that for the rest of their lives.

  • The colonists were treated like trash so they killed the reds

  • Colonists had the right to Rebel

    In my opinion, the colonists were right to rebel. The British were oppressing them, imposing taxes left and right without the colonists being able to vote against them (No Taxation without Representation.) Don't you think this defeats the purpose of the colonists moving out of England? The reason the colonists wanted to leave in the first place was to have new opportunities and escape British oppression. The British allowed this, and even financially supported them, but only so they could profit from the colonization and expand their territory. The colonists were ready to split, start their own country, and support themselves with trade and farming. The British wanted to keep them under their control, which is why they kept sending soldiers. The colonists rebelled, against injustice, oppression, and tyranny.

  • Three words: The Stamp Act

    The Stamp Act was a leading contributor in the revolution because Great Britain was forcing the colonists to pay a tax that was completely unjust. You could not even ship out playing cards without being taxed, so imagine how difficult that must have been, especially if you were in the newspaper industry, or if you were an author. Also, we had no representation in the congress.

  • No it wasn't right

    I think that the colinst were protected so in return they should have paid the taxes instead of resisting. In my option if you do something for someone they should pay you back with a favor. So I think that if the colonist just paid their taxes they would of been OK.

  • No taxation without representation.

    The representation part is quite clear, for protection. After the war, Britain imposed taxes on the colonist because they needed some form of payment to recover, the colonist did really little in the war,yet they complain about equality and taxes. If the colonist wanted equality then they should know that the colonist pays taxes ten times lower than the people living in england at the time, and world wide, paid the lowest taxes. They just dont know how to be grateful.

  • This wasn't right.

    The British government was paying a ton of money to keep the soldiers guarding the Proclamation Line. Although the thought of a tax seemed quite threatening because they weren't paying very many taxes, they still should have realized that these taxes were only for their safety. Britain was in the hole so they (the colonists) could live their luxurious life in America. You might say that this rebellion eventually brought about the American Revolution, and it did. But the United States of America would have happened a different way, not with selfish people wanting all the money for themselves.

  • Not really, no.

    The British specifically told the colonists not to expand westward until they were ready to, but the colonists decided to go and butt heads with the native people and try to take their land. This in turn caused the British to reluctantly send soldiers and supplies to America, which wasn't cheap, to go and bail the colonists out. And then, in turn, the Americans were outraged when Britain made the ridiculous motion to actually make the colonists pay for their wrongdoings (Sarcasm). No, the colonists really probably should not have rebelled, since the British were actually being quite fair, in my opinion.

  • Take this under consideration

    The Colonists were being unjust in terms of taxation. The British told them not to expand west of the Appalachian Mountains. However, they ignored this and just ventured fourth. They got into fight with the indigenous people of that land and the British had to come help them. Its because of this taxes were released. It was only to pay for the many times the British had to come help the colonists. They could have let them die on their own. Also, the taxes weren't much and in the French and Indian War it was only to support the troops so that they can keep the colonists and their land under their control. Plus, the revolution wouldn't be preventing due to the colonists revolt it would only be delayed. As more signs of Democracy appear the more colonists will get a taste of freedom and crave it even more which causes another revolution.

  • Think about it

    The colonists were being really stupid because they said that taxing was overrated, but it payed for the government that gave THEM protection. They gave LITTLE help in the French and Indian war, so it seems only fair they pay for the army that saves them from moving back to a dirty,smoggy England!

  • NO they should not have

    They should have started a peaceful rebellion. The rebellion was called for, but not have been an armed rebellion. Get it get it get it get it u h im a slave 4 u get it get it get it get it uh im a slaaave for u - b spears

  • The British Saved the Colonists

    In the French and Indian War, the colonists, not the British themselves, wanted the Ohio Country. Though they thought it might be a good area they were not that interested. The colonists were, they were the ones to try to get the Forks of the Ohio. Which ended up turning into a war, the British helped win this war, but when they asked for taxes to be paid to help compensate for the cost of the war, the colonists rebelled. They acted like small children throwing temper tantrums.
