The Tax Day Tea Parties -- A Great Day for America

n the aftermath of the Tax Day Tea Parties, which were attended by hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans yesterday, here’s one man’s warning about the most prominent threats facing our nation:

(1) Greatly expanded government spending, for missiles, for so-called defense generally, for foreign aid, for every conceivable means of getting rid of ever larger sums of American money -- as wastefully as possible. (2) Higher and then much higher taxes (3) An increasingly unbalanced budget, despite the higher taxes.... (4) Wild inflation of our currency, leading rapidly towards its ultimate repudiation. (5) Government controls of prices, wages, and materials, supposedly to combat inflation. (6) Greatly increased socialistic controls over every operation of our economy and every activity of our daily lives. This is to be accompanied, naturally and automatically, by a correspondingly huge increase in the size of our bureaucracy, and in both the cost and reach of our domestic government. (7) Far more centralization of power in Washington, and the practical elimination of our state lines.... (8) The steady advance of Federal aid to and control over our educational system, leading to complete federalization of our public education....
