No Tax Tuesday: What would the Fathers say?

There is a reason are founding fathers were able to set the course of our great country. They hated government intrusion into their lives and recognized the danger and evil that any government will inflict upon its' people if allowed to become the center of power. 

Thomas Jefferson:
The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

George Washington:No taxes can be devised which are not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant.
I wonder what our founding fathers would say about the government that now inflicts itself upon its' people? Would they call for a second revolution? Would they call us to arms to defend ourselves against the tyranny of big government out of control? What would they say to those who assail their constitution as a group of antiquated ideals?
