Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul managed to “fire up” the Internet with a photo he posted on social media. It shows him burning the U.S. tax code.
Going after everyone’s favorite target, the Internal Revenue Service, the senator from Kentucky on Friday posted the image of himself sending the code up in flames — all 74,608 pages of it.
And yes, he was condemned by the tree huggers.

Despite President Barack Obama’s affinity for the IRS, the photo struck a nerve with some people.
