br America ‘s Break-Away From Great Britan Just before the Revolutionary War , America closed all ties with England . Why would America forfeit such an ally in their struggle to become a Nation ? There are many reasons for this . Many believed that it was the act of Taxation Without Representation ‘ However , could this act alone radiate enough motivation for the American Colonists to forfeit all protection and benefits from their motherland ?

Therefore the Sons Of Liberty brought to the table a simple solution

America would sever it ‘s ties with Britain and declare itself an independent nation . Taxes had gone far enough . Nearly every marketable product and been taxed . Whether it be purchasing , exporting or even importing , America had no way to make a profit off of any products they withheld . As well , Britain also forbade all trade with any other countries . Obviously , because it did not benefit England or their Kingdom . This had American Colonists on edge , but what really tipped the iceberg , was when Britain took the lives of several colonists without remorse . This lead to more riots and even more angry citizens . I believe that Americas break was inevitable , but this tide was definitively turned by the revolutionists involvement… [banner_entry_footer]
