If the little guys — they pay most of the taxes — suddenly came to realize how hard they are being hit they might do something about it. They might, for instance, declare war on thc big spending politicians who spend public money to curry favor with the voters and. thus, to maintain themselves in office. A tax rebellion and election defeats for the big spenders just might restore the principles of sane economy to the operation of the U. S. government.
