Why Did the Colonists Declared Independece?

I believe that everyone deserves freedom. So why not they want the same? To be free by my words means that you do what you want to do and not what other people tell you to do. It makes as mad when someone tells us to do something. This all started out because of Britain's Financial problems. Britain was low on money to fight the war, so George Grenville, the Prime Minister issued writs of assistance which made the colonies pay for tax to help pay for the war and defense. No one want's to be bossed around. The Sugar Act of 1764 brought low taxes of molasses which hoped Americas to buy instead of smuggling. Judges in England made lots of money because of smuggling. The other act that brought trouble was the Stamp Act of 1765 which made you bay tax for everything that you made, like newspapers, pamphlets, legal documents and other printable documents. This act was the fist direct tax on the colonists, which to my thinking made them angry. Colonists did not think that it was fair for the British to tax since they did not elect no members to Parliament. As you can tell by my writing, the colonists wanted their own freedom, so this is why they wanted to Declare Independence.
