From 1607 until 1763, the British had a hands-off approach towards the colonies - with exception of Georgia, all the colonies were private ventures and not under government supervision. After French-Indian War (Seven Years' War), British was deep in debt and needed to raise money. Since colonists were not really paying their share of taxes, Parliament set out to make the colonists to pay their share. Colonists balked ("no taxation without representation") and the growing tensions between the two led to some in colonies to consider independence. From the colonists' point of view, the taxation and punishment for not paying them violated English laws and convinced some colonists that independence was the best answer.
