Violated their right to a jury trial.
The colonist felt that the taxes violated there rights and also the British couldn't pull taxation without representation.
I think they just don't like wasting their money like us, right? Answer: You're right that nobody likes being taxed. But what most upset the colonists was that they …didn't like "taxation without representation". Our taxes are determined by people we elect to represent us. If we don't like the job they do, we vote for someone else next time. The colonists' taxes were being decided on in England by people that they did not elect, people who had no clue what life in the colonies was like. The colonists wanted to be heard, not ignored.
Because they were extremely high taxes while those who lived in England did not have to pay as much.
they boycotted the idea and stopped paying taxes to the british
because it was in favor of the British Mercantilism was the economic philosophy underlying early European colonial policy. The object of mercantilism was to increase the wealt…h of the Mother Country (England) in gold and silver.
Colonists disliked the Quebec Act because it canceled all of thier western land claims and it threatened a lot of their religious freedom. This act was also listed as one of t…e Intolerable Acts because of how they so despised this act.
The colonists disliked the Stamp Act because it put taxes on a lot of articles that were important to the colonists. They felt that any taxes should be authorized by colonial …legislatures, not by Parliament (where they had no representatives).
They burned down stamp warehouses and quit reading newspapers.
Colonists with interests in western lands objected to the Proclamation for two reasons: first, it drew a boundary beyond which no settlements were allowed, and second, it allo…wed only the king to buy lands from the natives. Since there were already settlements west of the Appalachians, and since traders had bought land, the Proclamation caused difficulties for many people, and so it was protested loudly.
Colonists disliked the declaratory act because they didn't get a say in what taxes to pass and which taxes not to pass.
British Officers would knock upon the door of a home and then instruct the residents that they were to house and feed soldiers. The Quartering-Act was part of the intolerable… acts which were made to punish the colonists for the Boston Tea Party. The ultimate reaction was to write a no-quartering act into the Bill of Rights.
The colonists disliked the Townshend act because the British taxed everything ( sugar, tea, paper, paint, lead, glass etc.). The colonists oposed paying taxes to Great Britain… because they were not represented in the Parliament of Great Britain.
The Townshend Acts applied duties (taxes) to paper, paint, lead, glass, and tea imported by the colonies. Townshend had studied the colonist's distinction between intern…al and external taxes and he believed his duties were external as none of the products, except tea, could be made in the colonies. The colonists did not agree with his thinking and the result was a colonial boycott against British products. Trade between England and America fell off by 50 percent as a result of the boycott. The British merchants complained to Parliament who repealed the Townshend Duties except the tax on tea. The tea tax was kept in honor of the Declaratory Act. Parliament passed that act to declare that they did have the right to tax the colonies regardless of the American claim of internal or external taxation. The colonists would claim that the Declaratory Act was unconstitutional because the colonies did not have representation in Parliament. Great Britain claimed the colonies were represented “virtually,” as Parliament represented all areas of the British Empire, regardless of whether or not a colony elected a representative to that legislative body. Thus, the debate over whether the colonies did have representation in Parliament would not be settled until the Revolution.
Vice admiralty courts were juryless courts located in British colonies that were granted jurisdiction over local legal matters related to maritime activities, such as di…sputes between merchants and seamen.
They opposed paying those taxes because they were not represented in the Parliament of Great Britain.
The colonists were tired of having to pay taxes to the British government and so they boycotted the idea and stopped paying taxes to the British.
