...he employs shady tax avoidance strategies
...he receive numerous military deferments during the vietnam war
...none of his military age sons have served in iraq or afghanistan
And you are, of course. So, you would know exactly what a patriot is and how they should earn, spend and save their capital. And you, with your infinite grasp of American histroy, are setting the gold standard of patriotism, truth, justice and the American way.
In fact, what you know about all of this, and what you know about tax law, could easily be engraved on the head of pin. By the way, those shady tax avoidance strategies you're #$%$ about were created by your patriotic congress over the last 75 years to foster capital accretion, sound fiscal and monetary policy, and allow producers to create wealth.
Tax laws created by the IRS are, in their own words "...designed to allow citizens to pay the least amount of tax necessary to comply with their civic and personal responsibilities..."
THey were NOT designed to shake down American citizens in order to confiscate their hard-earned money and then transfer it to mush-filled skulls like you.
You don't seem to have noticed that over the last 60 years that as government got bigger, the country got poorer.
But as long as a patriot like you gets yours---who gives a shyt, right?
I have a small business and I don't get the tax breaks these guys get. I pay 35% in Federal taxes and 20% in capital gains taxes. If guys like Romney actually paid their fair share, small companies like mine might be able to compete. Our tax code definitely favors large companies.
I'm unable to hire today because of lack of demand and because I can't obtain bank funding to grow. The banks we bailed out do not lend to actual small businesses regardless of the rhetoric.
There are several good articles out today about how Paul Ryan voted against small business funding in 2010. A country who will not fund small business where most of the job growth and creativity comes from is in deep trouble.
Romney = GWB with lipstick on = Reagan = Secret war mongering government
Copy and paste below text into Google search and click on the first link it finds and watch the video:
"The Secret Government PBS"
Watch and learn what happened 25 years ago, repeated in GWB's administration, and will repeat with Romney's administration. History will indeed repeat itself.
Romney should ask Obama to show his birth certificate. He is a good man and do not want to lower to that level.
Do not support people who shows hatress all the time. Look at the way our president talks. He is not inspiring people to do good. Enroiging us to think poor. Please, the sky is the limit. Romney, Bill Gates, Buffet are the blessings to others. When you have money you can help others.
The mindset of waiting for free money is the the way our country should have. Do not attack...it is unhuman. Be kind and you will be blessed.
The top 25% pulled in almost 70% ($162,279 each )of income, the bottom 50% around 13% ($15,000 each )of all income and payed almost 3% of all taxes. In the statistic of 50% of taxpayers not not paying in, is not exclusive to the bottom 50%, take Frank McCourt the and his wife who have paid 0 in income taxes for years now and they are in the top 1% of income. When was the last time GE, PG&E, Boeing, Wells Fargo, Honeywell, Mattel....... paid any income tax? So after standard deduction and exemptions what is the fair tax on $6,000?
