History

Harvard

The members of the congress have sincerely given the sentiments of duty and affection warmly to their majesty, as well as they were attached happily to the establishment of their protestant success. They were also deeply impressed with the presentation sense and imminent misfortune of the British colonies in the British continent. They are being considered with maturity as time gives a permit to them in the specific circumstances of the colonies. It is their responsibility to make specific decisions as well as humbly give their opinions. Moreover, they should respect the most important liberties & rights of the colonists. Due to several reasons, the late acts of parliament are given. Almost every British born in the continent of America and very few of them were born in the other dominions of the British. It happened because it was the law of God or Nature and by an act of the parliament. These were all entitled to be the vital, integral and inherent rights of Great Britain. Between all these rights as discussed earlier, but not any single person convinced and no one accepted the parliament. It is a fact that they wanted equality in their rights, whereas many of the houses were representative of their majesty’s colonies and gardening in America. It is against the rules, as claimed in general assemblies. It is vital to explicit the exclusive right of taxes and duties to his majesties against the plantations so that they can build their colonies.

Britain paid much emphasis to their king for their freedom and equal rights in the state. In addition, they wanted that their King should raise these issues in the parliament so that issues can be resolved accordingly. The representation was made in the parliament from several communities to talk about their equal rights in the country since they gathered in the parliament. Then they became the numerous as to be called on not be make provincial government, civil government and any other cost, after delivering the debate with a large number of communists.

Thus British colonies were actually failed to get their rights as per law from the parliament. It was not a good answer to increasing their prosperity and commerce of Great Britain. The British

Parliament imposed several taxes on the plantation and divided the government into three parts. In the end, the British parliament imposed these firmly on the American colonies. Thus the British parliament was made, and they passed an act that every single person of the American Community has to pay the tax for the plantation of anything while living in the British. This Act was given to the Americans by Great Britain. Moreover, they imposed the law without hearing any concerns and discussing with the American communists.

According to the American perspective, the legislature of Great Britain imposed taxes on their American colonies and exerted the right to present the faith as well as the propositions to clear indisputably. It was essential to undertake their defense, as they were actually discussed in the conversation of both papers. It was rightly said by James Otis (1764) that “The very act of taxing, exercised over those who are not represented, appears to me to be depriving them of one of their most essential rights, as freemen; and if continued, seems to be in effect an entire disfranchisement of every civil right” After that, the great argument was raised that no Englishmen would be taxed without his consent. Every American subject born on the British continent, only a few of them born in the sub-domains of the British, which is by the law of God and Nature. The American perspective denies the law of taxation on the Englishman by Great Britain. It was observed that they raised their voices against this act in the parliament but it was rejected due to their minority representation in the parliament. The Americans did not want to pay taxes on the cultivation or plantation. As they said, they were not ready to accept this law, but the bill had been passed by Great Britain. After passing this law they refused the law and raised their voice for the freedom of the Englishmen. First of all, they said that no Englishman would pay taxes by his own consent as an individual, and Englishman would pay only a little amount of tax as any other individual in the world is paying. Secondly, no Englishman would pay tax as he was the only one who represented the American colonies.

Lastly, it was decided by the American community that no Englishmen would pay tax until and unless he was elected by the majority or other of his friends to represent him. The American society certainly considered it false that every Englishmen was paying tax and not only one in the representatives of the Great Britain. For the representative of the community, no Englishmen were chosen who were copyholders, as well as men who were having their personal property, leaseholders, persons those from Birmingham, Manchester and many other areas which were richer. These areas were related to most flourishing businessmen and traders of the town, yet they were not Englishmen. The liberty of an Englishman did not mean that taxes that were imposed by the parliament of the Great British were giving any kind of exemption. Moreover, no charter had been pretended for the privilege of any colony of America, so they were granted as well. The American community decided to have their own local police, which can only work for their duties against every subject of the superior authority of the parliament. The powers were specified in these express words that “according to the course of other corporations in Great-Britain": and therefore they can have no more pretence to plead an exemption from this parliamentary authority, than any other corporation in England.” (Jenyns, 1765)
