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?

I like it! Take the money away from them and let them cope with less!
I have to add; it is a bold idea and one has to wonder how the IRS would react to this, I would guess not too favorably!
Oh oh. Looks like Ted Cruz is about to be audited.
It will never, ever happen. Cruz is an amateur. The oligarch has the tax structure it desires. It bought hundreds perhaps thousands of Congressmen to get it that way.
This is corporate welfare. And on this count, I agree with the liberals.
Here’s a piece from Huffpo on how 18 corporations are dodging 92 billion in taxes. You don’t think it’s a coincidence do ya? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/03/apple-tax-havens_n_3378935.html
Privatizing profits and socializing losses- sending all that directly to the minions. It really is class warfare and right now- the minions are getting their asses kicked. (Apple paid a 2% tax rate last year using Chinese labor too)
If you buy an Apple product- you suck. Ha!
The problem comes with the interpretation of the word “fair.” Most Americans — not only those on the Left — think that a progressive tax is fair because the rich should be made to pay.
I recommend reading National Taxation, a recent blog post by my friend Mustang. He is asking important questions about taxation and also pointing out some of the traps in the current proposals.
Was that a disinformation campaign I just witnessed? LOL!!
