12 The Tea Act, 1773 To save the East India Company from financial ruin This act eliminated all remaining import duties on tea entering England and thus lowering the selling price to consumers The company could also sell its tea directly to the people Both of these actions lowered tea below the cost of smuggled tea The colonists didn’t care about the price; it was the principle of taxation without representation

13 This law would corrupt Americans into accepting the principle of parliamentary taxation by taking advantage of their weakness for a frivolous luxury Dec. 1773, the Boston Tea Party – 50 disguised men (plus others) dump forty-five tons of tea overboard

16 First Continental Congress Because of the Intolerable Acts Suffolk Resolves was the first action: colonies owed no obedience to any of the Coercive Acts; provisional govt. should collect all taxes until the former Mass. Charter was restored; defensive measures should be taken Voted to boycott all British goods and cease exporting almost all goods to Britain

17 Not all delegates supported this plan They settled on a Petition that stated the following: – Affirmed Parliament’s power to regulate trade – thus indicating they respect elected assemblies, but only if they have a voice – Also stated that all previous paramilitary efforts to impose taxes, enforce laws through admiralty courts, suspend assemblies, and unilaterally revoke charters were unconstitutional Bad Britain!
