  • Late 1600s: Parliament
  • Excellent!
  • Idea! Mercantilism is a MUST...the colonies exist for our benefit!! We shall implement more taxes and restrictions NOW! What do you guys think?
  • At sea
  • Well..well...the 1660 Act is enforced now. Our ship needs to have 75% English born sailors, so looks like one of you Americans has got to leave. Farewell haha
  • They've taken control and restricted all of our trade, increased our taxes, and now I can't even afford sugar. I miss the days when we actually had autonomy.
  • Captain kicked me off after I complained about the cargo inspections. The British are completely outrageous! The taxes will never stop!
  • Hello brother, since when did you return home and why?
  • This is insanity! They are just taking advantage of us, knowing that us colonists will never be able to form our own trade economy this way. We'll forever have to be dependent on them...unless...
  • NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION OR ELSE WE WANT INDEPENDENCE!
