Questions about taxes

What if the aircraft that was detected by radar had been recognized as hostile on Dec. 7, 1941? What if America had left Europe to fight its own battles in World War I and World War II? What if those people who trained the pilots to fly those planes into the twin towers and the Pentagon had suspected what they intended to do? About 30 years ago, Tooele County had enough money in reserve to run the county for a full year. I wonder where we would be if the county government had followed that example. I wonder where we will be if and when the 41 organizations who now have taxing authority in the county should decide they all need more money. (They will never have enough.) With 41 organizations all setting their own tax levy, I wonder if this could be a contributing factor to the balancing of the county budget. Just wondering where we might be in 10 years if we all asked 10 percent less from government instead of always more.
