Who spoke out taxation without representation?

The British colonists in America before the War of Independence (no taxation without representation /in the British Parliament/).

What did the patriots want?

The patriots wanted Independence from Great Britain because they protested that Great Britain had no right to tax them without the consent of their own colonial assemblies. They called the British policies "Taxation Without Representation." Some colonists refused to buy British Products.

Did the Americans or the British have the better argument with regard to the taxation problem?

Primarily the Colonists argued that because they had no voice in the distant British Parliament they should not be subjected to British taxes (and some other British demands). The slogan was, "No taxation without representation." Then when Britain decided to require the Colonists pay taxes to help with the debts Britain incurred in their war with France, the Colonists rebelled.

Which of these is the slogan adopted by colonists angry about British taxes?

One of the most significant reasons why the colonists were against the British taxes was because they had no say over them, as they were not represented in the British government. The United States Declaration of Independence was ratified on July 4, 1776.

Which contributed the outbreak of the Revolutionary War?

The battlecry was "Taxation without representation". The British government imposed taxes upon the colonists; but the colonists had no say in what was taxed and by how much.
