How was the power of colonial governors limited?

The colonial governors were free to do what they needed to keep taxes rolling into the royal tax collectors EXCEPT they could not set or order their own salaries, which came from those same tax collectors. The colonial legislatures in each colony had the authority to approve or delay as long as they chose, the paying of a salary to the royal governor. In other words, if the governor made the colonists angry, he might never get paid.It was an early power given to the colonials since the king and crown did not want to pay the governor's salaries out of royal tax revenues. The governor was stuck trying to mollify the colonials and keep tax money rolling in to pay the bills, including his own.

What caused the American colonists' break with Great Britain?

Attempts by the British Parliament, with the support of the King, to exercise legislative powers over the colonies, particularly the power to tax, which had not been effectively exercised previously in colonial history. The colonists were used to making their own laws, and setting their own taxes, through their own elected legislatures. Since they had no representation in Parliament, Parliament's claim to be able to legislate and tax then itself, and enforce those laws with officers answerable to it rather than the colonies, meant the colonists would have no effective means of exercising and protecting their rights. Parliament could undo any of their laws and and tax them into utter poverty on a whim. When Parliament would not acknowledge the justice of the colonists grievances, and it became apparent that the king completely supported the parliament, the colonists decided to declare independence. For a more detailed accounting of just what the colonists were concerned about, read the Declaration of Independence, not just the first few lines that everybody memorizes in school, but the whole thing. Jefferson gives a long list of charges against the king and Parliament showing why the king was a tyrant unfit to rule.
