Why did America declare independence?
>Taxation without representation?
>GB choosing to appease their Native allies West of the Appalachians over their colonial subjects desire to colonize it?
>Enlightenment idealism and perception of Parliamentarian corruption?
>GB granting Catholics freedom of worship?
>The American colonies were founded through private enterprise with little government support from the very beginning? And GB was attempting to extend their reach over their loyal, but autonomy desiring subjects; believing they were owed something after sending as few troops as possible to protect the colonies during the 7 years war?
