Britan fell into lots of debt anf desperately needed a way to raise money.
Well, I.. uh, I suppose we could tax the colonists.
Uh, sir, we are in a heavy amount of debt...
CITY HALL COUNCIL MEETING
Britan decided to impose the Sugar Act which taxed colonists for the use of sugar, molasses, coffee, wine, ect.
THE SUGAR ACT
My council and I have had a very tough time deciding what we shall do about our debt due to the war, and we have decided it would be best to impose a tax on the colonists. This taxt will be labled as the Sugar Act.
THOSE STUPID TAX CLLECTORS ARE COMING HERE NEXT!!
Please sir, PLEASE!!
The colonists fell into poverty, and struggled to provide for their families due to the taxes. The colonists were enraged.
Please sir... I am a single, pregnant mother and I must provide shelter for my two children.
We must collect the money by 3pm sharp. Otherwise, you will be evicted from your home by dusk.
THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!!
In reaction to the Sugar Act, the colonists began smuggling goods, and a lot of theft took pace during the time of the Sugar Act.
These wealthy snobs will never know what hit 'em!
The British are absolutely foolish if they think they can place an outrageous tax on us colonists, and get nothing but respect in return!
