Now we're going to tax the colonists again, even though they haven't recovered from the last one. So, let's tax all their paper.
What are we going to do? How are we going to be able to function with all of these extra taxes?
Let's go get our anger out by burning puppets. That'll show 'em.
The British have no right to take our money. They claim we are still English people but do not act that way. We are not represented in Parliament so why should the taxes have any effect on us. This is taxation without representation!
you're right...let's go burn those puppets.
Prime minister Grenville, we have been receiving many petitions from the colonists.
they request that the Stamp Act be repealed. we have no other choice but to remove you from office.
you were right James Otis! making a petition was so much easier to get their attention. the effigy thing worked too though.
