15. Well
If they can't count our votes properly, there's no reason to expect them to count our tax money properly. Right?

Plus, I seem to remember an old saying,

No Taxation without Representation!

A massive tax revolt would be one way to get their attention. However, the IRS and the feds would not exactly welcome this form of free speech protest -- I'm no lawyer, and I'm just guessing here but.....

Since withholding is automatic for most working people, it would not be easy to implement either.

Plus, I don't think most Americans would think we are at that point in our political disgust.
