No Taxation Without Representation

One of the crucial causes of the American Revolution was a slogan pinned for the colonists in the 1750s and 1760s that states, "No taxation without representation."

Colonists had to tax whatever the king and parliament told them to tax.

Many people in those colonies believed that, as they were not directly represented in the far British Parliament, any laws it passed affecting the colonists like the Sugar Act and the Stamp Act were illegal under the "Bill of Rights" in 1689

The phrase had been used for more than a generation in Ireland and by 1765, the phrase was also used in Boston!

If colonists has legislators, they would probably have a choice to have taxes or not
