The blogosphere is abuzz this morning with a Senator Ted Cruz tweet advocating the abolishment of the IRS:
I am really beginning to like this Texas Senator,, aren’t you?
In yesterday’s post at Bunkerville, Bunker asked:
What happens if most Americans went to their employer and changed their W-2 and claimed 10 dependents?
Now, my friend made it clear that Bunkerville was not suggesting that Americans do such a thing. I thought that was a good idea and I commented that I would not suggest that people claim addition dependents on their W-2’s either.
So, to all of you, my dear readers, I want to be clear. I am not suggesting you should claim more dependents on your W-2 than you actually have. Further, I recommend that each of you not suggest to everyone you know that they should claim more dependents than they actually have. Just imagine if 50 million advocates of small government didn’t listen to our advice not to claim extra dependents. The beast would begin to starve. Starving is a terrible way to go, don’t you think? So, go forth, my friends, and do not suggest such a thing every chance you get!
And, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
