User: why did the british tax the colonist

Weegy: Many in those colonies believed the lack of direct representation in the distant British Parliament was an illegal denial of their rights as Englishmen, [ and therefore laws taxing the colonists (the kind of law that affects the most individuals directly), and other laws applying only to the colonies, were unconstitutional. In recent times, it has been used by several other groups in several different countries over similar disputes. ]

Perhaps the single most important development in England to affect the self-identity of the colonists was the Glorious Revolution of 1688. While this was a profound event for the English, for the colonists it was truly earth-shattering.

The people had enough. Being mostly Prodestants, the didn't want to have Catholisism forced on them, and the taxes without representation irked them. Time for a change was brewing.
