The Colonists Were Spoiled Brats.
Today, everyone pays taxes on almost everything, and we do it willingly.
Maybe the American Revolution was inevitable, but were the revolts against the British inevitable, or just another sign of the colonists being greedy? The first sign Of the colonist’s greed, was after the stamp act was imposed. The Stamp Act Congress was created as an attempt to dissolve the Stamp Act. This revolt was unnecessary. The actual cost of the Stamp Act was relatively small, And the money that was collected from the stamp act was used to help pay the costs for protecting theAmerican frontier at the Appalachian Mountains. The colonists, being their usual ungrateful selves, felt that they should only pay taxes voted by the Virginia House of burgesses. Another example of the colonists greed was after the Townsend acts were imposed. The colonists showed no intentions of paying these taxes.

Although the British were being greedy by imposing this tax for the sole purpose of generating revenue in the colonies, The colonists continued to be greedy and smuggled goods. Whatever could get them out of paying these “unfair taxes”.Before the Revolutionary war, Britain must have felt that there was nothing that could please the colonists. Ever since the colonists had arrived in America, they’ve had a hunger for land that was not theirs. The colonists wouldn’t stand for anything that restricted their freedom. Although The American Revolution was essential to the creation of The United States of America, I believe that the colonists could have broken away from British rule by other means. Whatever the colonists felt that they were not being treated fairly, they would fight back and cry until they got what they wanted.
