What they wanted
Loyalists wanted the colonies to remain part of Britain.  They wanted the British King to continue to rule the colonies.
Patriots were people that wanted to leave Britain and have the colonies become their own country.  They felt that the King was too far away to understand the problems in the colonies.
Nutralists These were colonists that did not know what to believe.  They didn't know if it was best to keep the King as their leader or form a new country.
