A boycott that might actually make sense.

I've long thought that the biggest mistake we've made in terms of surrendering to limitless federal authority is the enlistment of employers as tax collectors.

Every so often we see the chain letter go around: On a specific date, everyone should refrain from taking part in some routine activity. [Buying gas, shopping at McDonald's, etc.]

Here's a variation on this theme...a way of telling Uncle Sam in no uncertain terms that we don't want our dollars going to bail out Wall Street firms' bad choices.

Would the message get across if millions of employees across the nation went to their HR departments with new W-4 forms claiming enough exemptions that little to no income tax would be withheld?
