Can someone help me please. I am having a hard time answering this question.

Do you think Great Britain was justified in imposing taxes on the colonies following the French and Indian War? Or do you believe the colonists had legitimate grievances regarding the British policy of taxing them? Could Britain have handled the situation better, and if so, how? And, were the grievances of the colonies really so great that independence was the only recourse? Could a compromise have been found? What form might it have taken?

After I did some research I found that Great Britain had every right to impose taxes. Great Britain invested money into american colonies, solider, food and shelter which ultimately caused them to go into depth. This is all I got so far. Can anyone further assist me. Thank you
