The reason that the Stamp Act affected this group of colonist because it placed a tax on printed material. Many political colonial leader was against this act which caused a rivalry between the colonist and Great Britain over the meaning of freedom. Colonists did not have representation in Great Britain Parliament. They had their own colonial legislature that levied taxes, colonists argued that the Parliament had no rights to imposed and raised revenues through regulation of trade. American throughout the colonies cried out against “no taxation without representation,” as a violation of their English liberties.
The French and Indian War altered relationships and created tensions between Britain and its American colonies. The political relation strained because of the laws like the Proclamation of 1763 that angered colonist. As a result of political laws like the Proclamations and Acts, the economy went is to poverty and depression. Ideological was seen by the colonist to be Independent. The French and Indian War made the British council establish new laws.
The colonies however, felt that they fought the war side by side with the British, causing the two groups to have different political ideas. British politics felt that it would be just to impose taxes on the Americans in order to pay off their war debt that had accumulated. Taxes were imposed on nearly everything in the colonies in order for Britain to payoff debt; these taxes simply outraged the colonists which is the start of the conflict between America and Britain. Taxes such as the Stamp Act, which placed a tax on any printed document that was purchased, and the Tea Act, which placed an insane tax on tea in the colonies, and basically cutoff colonists from finding a cheaper price for tea, pushed the colonists overboard, leading them to rebellions. One of these rebellions was the Boston Tea Party, where colonists dressed up as Indians and threw the entire stock of British tea into the Boston Harbor, which was one of America’s first major acts of independence towards Britain.
Some historians say that Charles is totally to blame for this war, while some say that parliament is totally to blame for it. I am going to tell you about it. There were many reasons for why the king was to blame one of the reasons for why the king was to blame was because of his money problems. Charles was not good with money and always had very little. He had closed down parliament and had to think of ways of getting money without asking the parliament's help.
The American Revolution was a war fought mainly because the colonies did not agree on the economic policies Britain was enforcing to the Americans, therefore leading the Americans into a fight for independence. The French Revolution occurred for very similar reasons. Peasants in France were a large majority of the population, all having to struggle to pay unfair taxes, as the citizens with wealth had no taxes at all to pay. Peasants also had no say in their Government, as America with Britain. After the 13 colonies gained their independence using Enlightenment ideas, the French knew that it was possible to overthrow a government.
The conflict between Britain and its American colonies was greatly affected by the French and Indian War. During the war, the British did not want the New England or Middle colonies to export any supplies to anyone but them or the West Indies. The British felt this way because the American shippers liked this way of trade because they were able to get things the West Indies and Britain could not offer them, and Britain did not want to lose money that the American colonies brought in for them. Thus said, economics was a major origin of the Revolutionary War. There were many economic reasons why there was turmoil before the Revolutionary War, which ultimately helped lead to the war.
Restrictions on what colonist manufactured angered the merchants because they were not allowed to produce certain items in the colonies, just as they were prohibited from distributing paper currency, and the ability of having any legislation passed in the assemblies nullified. These laws made smuggling an honest profession and more common, and encouraged the idea of independence because colonists believed trade could be regulated by the states instead of a central government. The back-to- back laws of the Sugar Act (1764), Quartering Act (1765), and The Stamp Tax (1765) worked to exacerbate the colonists. The Sugar act raised tax revenue on foreign sugar, specifically from the
This neglect involved the development of triangular trade, trade laws, trials without juries. They had illegal search and seizure to the colonist. They searched their homes for untaxed goods and such. The British had all kinds of laws that were very unfair to the colonist. The French and Indian War had a big impact on the
The Revolutionary War began as the result of Britain's attempt to gain revenue from the American colonies, seen in the creation of many Acts designed to tax the colonists. Because of the initial negative reaction of the colonists, the British army increased its presence in an attempt to follow through on collecting taxes, which angered many and led to the American Revolution. After a period of salutary neglect, the colonists were startled by Britain's sudden interest in them as a source of revenue. After the Seven Years War in Europe against France and Spain and the French and Indian War in America, Britain was financially strapped and looking for new ways to raise funds. Since there were already very high taxes in Britain, King George III
The harsh reparation payments by the Treaty Of Versailles ( £6600 million) was indeed a threat to the Weimar Republic. However, there was low unemployment of 17% and a growth in foreign investment. This economic crisis led to a more extreme political threat within German and therefore should be considered as more significant. There a high amount of tension between parties, and strikes between both the Left and the Right were becoming ever more apparent due to the lack of faith within the government. In fact the groups within the right such as the Freikorps and consul organisation showed an increasing amount of violence because of their lack of support on democracy, which of course created a tremendous threat to the Weimar Republic.
