Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has suggested revolt if taxes get too high.
While the conservative justice acknowledged, in an April 15 speech at the University of Tennessee College of Law
, that the federal income tax is constitutional, he said revolt may be necessary if those taxes become too big a burden.
Asked about the comments, Sen. Rand Paul warned that those law students might want to be sure they revolt in the right way.
"I hope he warned them of the consequences of revolt against the government," Paul said Monday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."

"If he means the form of revolt should be at the ballot box, I wholeheartedly agree," Paul said.
Such a revolt against the current tax system might bring U.S. companies back from overseas, he said, where they flee to escape "our onerous tax system."
"We should throw a lot of people out who have given us this crummy tax system," he added.
Paul is considered a favorite in the GOP presidential field for 2016, though, like the other favorites, he has said he won't make a decision on running until 2015.
