When questioned why the colonists had lost respect for England's Parliament, Benjamin Franklin answered: "To a concurrence of causes: the restraints lately laid on their trade, by which the bringing of foreign gold and silver into the Colonies was prevented; the prohibition of making paper money among themselves,* and then demanding a new and heavy tax by stamps; taking away, at the same time, trials by juries, and refusing to receive and hear their humble petitions." --Memoirs of Benjamin Franklin, Volume 1, page 206

* Some of the colonies had been reduced to the necessity of bartering, from the want of a medium of exchange.
