Were the colonists justified in declaring independence from Great Britain?

  • 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

    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.

    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.

  • Yes they were

    Because you wouldn't want to grt tax all the time and there tea was getting tax to.Also the messing took to long because there o the other side of the world and the king didn't allow them to make there own laws.Last they were they were cut off from world trade

  • Yes i think they did

    I think they had the right because great Britain is a very small island smaller than the little tho colonies. So tell me how a island that is a quarter of the size of the colonies could possible run a place as big as america or even the colonies so yeah they were justified

  • 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

  • Boston Tea Party

    The British had a clear advantage over the colonists with more weaponry, trained military, influence around the globe, and a larger population that was almost four times the size of theirs. The likelihood of gaining independence was slim at most. In fact most people thought we would give up fighting in the first few months of the revolution.

  • No they werenot oma

  • If we were in the shoes of king george III

    The only reason we would say yes is because of the great nation it became today, but if we were a britian back then we would've seen a worthless colony just rebeling against us. We spent a fortune getting it started and defending it. Also, their taxes were even less than anyone else in the world at their time and probably even today. The final reason is that no where in the english bill of rights had gave them a right to representation.
