How about we makers let the takers have it. Lets stop making and sit back and take a well deserved vacation. Seriously. When tax revenues hit bottom and the economy totally collapses what will the takers do. they will be forced to give power back to the grown ups, the makers.

I say we hold out until they have no choice but to give it up. I am saying the same as your quoted proverb. Do not protect them from their follies. Then they will stop playing the fool.
