Rand Paul began a two day tour of Michigan today, and it kicked off with a bang: or a more aptly, a raging fire. Paul, wearing a "Detroit Republican" shirt, filmed an ad in Michigan where he literally sets the federal tax code on fire after piling it in to a wheelbarrow.

From the Washington Times:

"Sen. Rand Paul hates the tax code so much that he literally burns it.

“Join me in Michigan where I’ll be talking about destroying the tax code: rand and watch for my new ads where it literally happens,” the Kentucky Republican posted to his Instagram account on Friday.

Mr. Paul’s picture featured him in a “Detroit Republican” T-shirt while a wheelbarrow filled with paper goes up in flames."

Paul's Michigan tour continues tomorrow, with stops across the state...

  1. Exciting!
    America set the world on fire with wealth creation, before the income tax, Federal Reserve, and the Leviathan government became omnipresent.

  2. I say destroy all the socialist programs! The Fed, IRS, Socialist inSecurity, Medicare, Medicaid, Dept of Uneducation, FDA, Food Stamps,housing, Labor, Energy and much much more. We are not the USA we are the United Socialist States of Amerika USSA.
