As Benjamin Franklin, the oldest and arguably wisest Founding Father, once said, "In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes".

According to WCPO-TV in Cincinnati, however, the people of Amelia, Ohio, believing local tax policy and leadership had begun to verge on tyrannical in recent years, took drastic action last month to evade the excessive burden of Franklin's second unavoidable reality of life.

Disgusted with "cover-ups" by town officials regarding misuses of public funds and infuriated by an income-tax increase passed by the city council in an unannounced 2018 vote, residents banded together with a common goal: to trim away layers of government waste.

On Nov. 5, the people of Amelia did the unimaginable to make that happen, voting 843-479 to entirely dissolve the 117-year-old village and its government.
