They were only thinking about what they wanted; the government was not interested in what the people wanted so they decided to make decisions on their own, which resulted in changes that form the United States today. Because of this, they were justified in rebelling and declaring independence. One reason why the colonists decided to rebel and declare independence was because of taxation. The colonists wanted representation when it came down to being taxed, but the British government would not allow it.
At one point, the British didn’t even let colonists -British citizens- have a fair right to trial because so many colonial rights were taken away!
