What did the Patriots do?

Patriots (also known as Revolutionaries, Continentals, Rebels, or American Whigs) were those colonists of the Thirteen Colonies who rejected British rule during the American Revolution and declared the United States of America as an independent nation in July 1776.

Furthermore, why is it better to be a loyalist than a patriot?

Colonists/Patriots had no rights; Patriots didn't like British taxes because they were unfair. Colonists that wanted to remain with Britain were known as Loyalists. Loyalists thought the taxes were a fair method to pay for the British Navy's protection, in addition to the protection of the Colonies by the British army.
