Honey, I think we should move so that we don't get attacked by the Indians.
No, we should stay here, we can't possibly be attacked by any Indians

NO! We will not pay off the debt that Britain should be paying!

It was self defense! They attacked us!

This is not treason! It's freedom, freedom from the corrupt government of England!

There are new rules that will make sure that the treasonous acts of the Boston Tea party will never happen again!

Guys, maybe we shouldn't do this, i mean, this is treason after all.
On June 2, 1774, the British Government passed a law that was meant to combat the acts of the Boston Tea Party. The laws included the Boston Harbor being closed, no more unauthorized meetings, there were new quartering acts, any government officials must be sent to Britain for a fair trial and all British soldiers are allowed to check cargo at any time.
It was not for treason, it was for Freedom, freedom of your corrupt king!
