Great Britain became too poor and wanted America to pay off their debts and taxes from the French and Indian War.

America was influenced by the ideas of the Enlightenment and wanted to gain their own independence from Great Britain. Due to their distance, they grew politically independent.
Yes we agree, this is a great system.
In the beginning, America wanted the same rights as British citizens to ultimately gain their independence from England. They no longer tolerated the unfair taxation brought upon them through the Sugar, Stamp, Navigation, Wool, Hat, Quartering, Townshend, and Coercive Tolerable Acts.
Thank you for assisting us.
