Were the colonists justified in declaring independence from Great Britain?

  • Yes yess yess

    Think about taxing, taxing, taxing, and having to pay all that, including soldiers who just barge in your door. Yup! Thats what the colonists had to do. I wouldnt go against them for madly disagreeing with the British parliament and just Great Britain itself...Oh yeah, and double that image. THAT'S what the colonists had to deal with

  • This is true

    America was justified because it was awesome. Think about all the taxes you need to pay. The colonists had to fight in the F&I war, and couldn’t go into the territory that they just fought because of the British drawing out a line of were the colonists couldn’t pass. Then were the taxes the taxes and the taxes. Tiny islands were trying to govern land that was over 25 times the size of britain. The americans wanted taxation with representation . Then americans started a peaceful protest : boston tea party. The British rejected that and taxed them more. British soldiers could just barge into your house and search it whenever they felt like it. Since the americans were treated badly and taxed a ton, the americans were justified in leaving GB.

  • Yes they were

    Because think about all the taxes you half to pay. Soldiers having to just walk in your door not asking. And that just my opinion ask others but that's just my opinion if you don't think so then don't bother my word for it its your choice not even mine.

  • Yes they were

    How would you feel if you had to deal with unreasonable taxes, had to feed and house soldiers, when you probably could barley support yourself, and weren't allowed to make any of your own decisions , and the british thought they could get away with piling money problems onto the colonists as well.

  • They were in our bussiness

    The British came into our stuff and got all up in our bussiness, so we have all rights to say nuh uh and just declare independence. So go tell Great Britian to suck a big one, because we had no say in anything they were doing. AMERICA FOREVER FAM. Britian needs to stay outa our stuff.

  • NO they were not justified

    As said before, not only did the Colonists start the French and Indian War by entering the Ohio River Valley. After entering they tried to eject the French form it as well. After Britain expended their money on the Colonies, and was in a Colonist-made debt, Colonials should pay a fair share back. Their taxes went back to themselves. Therefore it would not reach Britain, who needed the money. When asked to pay a small share, 10% less than British citizens in England, they threw a tantrum. They resorted to mob violence-tar and feathers anyone? The British already took it light on them. Why can't you give a small bit back? It was a hole dug by the Americans who used independence and British 'tyranny' to get out of it.

  • The Colonists highly exaggerated.

    Colonists exaggerated every little detail to prove that the British had no right to rule over them. The colonists only looked for more help, acting like helpless babies and completely forcing the British to punish them. For example, putting soldiers in their houses or closing the ports so no one could leave or enter...

  • Yes and no

    The colonists were the ones that started the French and Indian War. Because of this, Parliament has the right to tax them. Not to mention that they only had to pay 10% of the taxes British citizens had to. They paid significantly less, yet they argue that parliament has no right to tax them. Also they really only had some to little sort of independence therefor, they didn’t have a lot to hold them up against and support.

  • Not At All

    The colonists were the ones that started the French and Indian War. Because of this, Parliament has the right to tax them. Not to mention that they only had to pay 10% of the taxes British citizens had to. They payed significantly less, yet they argue that parliament has no right to tax them.
