Best Answer - Chosen by Asker: The colonist were given alot of liberty to govern themselves as they chose. When the British government started to tighten up on the colonists they didn't like it. One major issue was taxes. The colonists were not taxed at all by the British government. After the F&I war the british taxed the colonists to pay for 1/3 of the defense that was needed. This in and of itself was not bad, but the colonists not liking the idea of being really taxed for the first time hated the idea. So this started the feelings of independence and the wish to seperate themselves from the British empire.
