Try the year 1954'
Not sure the anger started then. Pols have expanded govt because the people have demanded it. Eisenhower expanded it with the National highway system, Kennedy and Johnson with Medicare, Medicaid, war on poverty, etc, civil rights over states rights,, Nixon had the EPA, Reagan expanded the military indrustial complex, Bush sr with ADA, Bush jr with homeland security, medicare prescriptions. Obama with expanding the private and public health care system for 30 million.
Problems occurred over the past 30 yrs when pols cut taxes on the rich and corporations and cap gains tax cuts while the middle class have to work two jobs to make ends meet!!
I would have guessed soon after Prohibition. But then again, most simply ignored that.
My voter anger started about 1968.
