Who were the Colonist who argued that the colonies should not separate from Britain?


What abuse did the king of Britain do to the 13 colonies that made them sign the declaration of independence?

"Abuse" is probably not the right word. And it was not the King in person by then who ruled Britain and its colonies, it was the British government and Parliament. What happened was that a couple of taxes were imposed that were highly unpopular amongst the colonists, who then unsuccessfully demanded that taxes should and could only be imposed on them if they were adequately represented in the British Parliament. One of the unpopular measures was that Britain had left a sizable army in the colonies after the French-Indian war and levied a tax on the colonies to pay for its upkeep. Britain held that the army was there for the colonies' protection in case the hostilities were renewed, so it was only right that they should pay for it. The colonies saw the army as an occupation force and considered having to pay for it as adding insult to injury.

How did it contribute to the US government when George III assumed the throne?

The attitude of King George III was that the Thirteen colonies were not contributing what they should have toward either the French and Indian War or the amount of revenue that was generated. He came to view the Thirteen colonies as competitors instead of subjects of the mother country. As a result, George's attitude as well as Parliament's resulted in the relationship between Britain and the colonies disintegrate.

How did taxation lead to trouble between Britain and the colonies?

They claimed, "No taxation without representation." They refused to be taxed because they were unable to elect members of Parliament that were making these tax laws. Hence, they thought it unfair to have to pay them while having no say in the tax-making process or having their views heard in government.
