The Creoles believed they could run the government better, protect their economic interest, and that the revolution was spinning out of their control. The Creoles led the fight against Spain because they were egotistical. They believed the government, economy, and society would be more beneficial in their power. The Creoles believed
1.Great Britain controlled the economy in the colonies through trade. 2.Every culture or country traded so that they could receive all of the essential goods that they needed to survive. 3.Great Britain forced the colonies to trade only with them so they could make a profit, and also so they could obtain the things they needed from. 4.As a result of the New World not having all that the colonists needed, Great Britain would have those goods that the colonists could use to survive; so they traded their goods back and forth. 5.Great Britain received the colonists goods for cheap, and they gained more money than necessary due to the raising of the prices on the goods that the colonies would need.
England wanted to land in the Americas because they believed that it had the same type of climate as the Mediterranean. Rum played an important role in the American Revolution because it was the only alcohol that the settlers would have. People turned to whisky and left rum because of the importation and taxing that came with it whereas whisky could be made there. Sugar and rum became an important import because it was needed in order to produce other things such as Whisky. Whisky began to be taxed in attempt to increase the income of money.
The idea of independence and freedom from Britain was a large concept during the time of the Revolution. The taxes that the British were imposing on colonists often led to uprising that amalgamated the colonists together. The idea of the Homespun virtue was a symbolism for American economic independence from the British imported good it also reflected the self- sacrifice colonist made from the luxury good of Britain. This idea united the Northern and Southern colonists to fight British imported goods. The schism during the time of the Revolution came from the wealthy plantation owners fearing that the their land will be taken away and divided amongst the poor after the revolution.

The English assumed that because they were from a large and powerful society, they could assert dominance over the Pamunkeys and their allies and use it to their own gain. They also believed that inevitably their relationship with the Pamunkeys would turn to violence, and so, alongside their assumptions, they committed violent
The European countries founded colonies in the Americas because they could buy cheap resources from their colonies, the colonies would serve as captive markets, and they could collect taxes from the colonists. Colonies were only allowed to trade resources with their mother country and their mother country wanted to buy resources as cheaply as possible. This meant that the colonists had to sell resources to their mother country at low prices even if they could sell their resources for more elsewhere. After buying resources from their colonies, the mother country would make refined goods to sell back to their colonies at a high price with a large profit. The colony would have to buy the goods from their mother country because they could not buy from anyone else, thus creating captive markets.
In the struggle for Latin America Independence, the peninsulares who were born in Spain and had major power of Latin America. The Creoles who were born in Latin America, but with the ancestry of the Peninsulares, had lower power than the Peninsulares.Why did the Creoles, which were dense populated and most were officers at the time lead the revolution? The Creoles lead the revolution because the Creoles had a massive economic issue as well as a fight for political power against the Peninsulares and the issues of the social classes. One reason that the creoles lead the revolution is the massive economic issue that occurred in Latin America. There was a drought in early Mexico in 1808-09 this destroyed the harvest, as well as tripled the food prices.
After the French and Indian War, the English government wants to increase the tax to get more money from the colonists. Therefore, they add many taxes such as the Stamp tax, Sugar Tax and Tea Tax and ask the colonists to be paid for the overwhelming national debt. The colonists in America were annoyed because this war was not for them but they are required to pay for the high tax. So they did acts for many times just like the Stamp Act. British soldiers wanted to suppress fact and clash with the colonists who were acting.
As has been noted, the Spanish conquistadors wanted gold and exorbitant commodities. They did not conquer far lands to learn about their culture, religion, or advancements, but for their own greed. Another improvement they would boast was not only new items and products to trade, but untried trading ports and routes and new territory to trade and acquire even more materials. Spain also wanted more and more land. They wanted to secure more territory than Portugal and to demonstrate their superiority through their fief.
Another example of Jacksonian Democracy giving a helpful hand to the common folk was with the tariff. The tariff gave the small industries in America to have a chance to rise. When the industries raised so did the workforce, which helped support the common white male. Countries in the south disliked this tariff because it forced them to buy domestic materials at a higher price, but this
Mercantilism was a way that the British kept economic control of the colonies. This way, the colonies would make money for Britain. The navigation acts and the sugar act were both laws enacted to restrict trade in the colonies. These acts only ended up causing corruption and rebellion, as the colonists tried to evade the
