<quoted text>when did Romney pay no taxes? his income tax records show @3 million per year in taxes. the many homes everyone makes jokes about are free of property tax? in CA?!?!? really? he pays no sales tax at all?
He wouldn't release his tax returns, so I guess we'll never know, will we??

Have you seen a return, or are you quoting a Rmoney statement??

Can you think of a good reason for a Presidential candidate not to release his/her tax returns??

Because I can't.

----------

""Mitt Romney has been employing yet another strategy to avoid paying taxes, according to a new report.

Romney legally avoided paying taxes through a charitable remainder unitrust he set up with the Mormon Church in 1996, Bloomberg News' Jesse Drucker reports.

The trust, which is only a small fraction of Romney's $250 million net worth, has been paying Romney 8 percent of its assets every year, according to Bloomberg. Since charities, including the Mormon Church, are tax-exempt, Romney hasn't paid taxes on the money for more than 15 years. The Romney campaign declined to respond to questions from Bloomberg and only said through a spokeswoman that "the trust has operated in accordance with the law."

Romney has reportedly sidestepped taxes in other ways. He has been avoiding gift and estate taxes through a trust that he set up for his children and grandchildren, according to a separate Bloomberg report. He also holds a Swiss bank account and investments abroad, including in the Cayman Islands, where he does not need to pay U.S. taxes. In addition, Romney avoided taxes by playing an "active" role at Bain Capital even after he had retired, according The Huffington Post.""

----------

I think we all know why he wouldn't release his tax returns.

It would be even more embarassing than the rumors..........so much for Repugnetard transparency.

No son. bushie boy saw the ENTIRE country as the enemy.

Thus his request to make the Patriot Act permanent.... something along the lines of your 1930's Germany.

Fortunately, Congress wasn't that dumbed down!

Naziism is a right wing ideology.
Here's the definition in Wiki, nitwit.
----------
Nazism, or National Socialism in full (German: Nationalsozialismus), is the ideology and practice associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party and state as well as other related far-right groups. It was also contemporaneous or promoted in other European countries, particularly those with large ethnic German communities such as Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia.
Re-read the line:
""associated with the 20th-century German Nazi Party and state as well as other related far-right groups.""
----------
You're so stupid, it's like correcting a really dumb child.
Please try and at least resist being used as a tool for the state.

There are many people who were also on the wrong side of history who regretted they didn't.

The M A J O R difference between Bush's bipartisan Patriot Act and Obama's expansion of the Patriot Act is Bush invaded Iraq and then signed an agreement pulling all our troops out.

it was President George W. Bush who,
On Dec. 14, 2008, signed with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) calling, in Article 24.1, for the withdrawal of all U.S. forces—not just combat forces—from Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011. Anyone who doubts it might consult on the White House website an "In Focus" release of Jan. 15, 2009 or a Congressional Research Service analysis of this SOFA by R. Chuck Mason, July 13, 2009

Saddam duped everyone! Do some friggin' research once in a while!
Not only did many civilized countries contribute to Saddam's biological and chemical programs which he claimed were for medical research when he was considered an ally against Iran...but why do you think it took 15 different resolutions over many years' time for the UN to finally issue a "severe consequences" warning the last time?
Are you this stupid on purpose or do you just love agitating people for your own weird personal pleasure?
Germany, France, Italy and Turkey warned BushCo that they were making a huge mistake__walking into a minefield. Israel, our ally, also knew better but kept mum because Israel believes that the only good Arab is a dead Arab.

Pay attention doll__Bush's neocons had the Iraq war on the table even before he stepped into the oval office.

Is it amnesia? Stupidity?

Or something else that drives you to post such nonsense?

Hillary evades federal income tax by diverting speaking fees to nonprofit Clinton Foundation......
meanwhile, the middle class gets hosed.....
At least, unlike George Bush, the Clinton's allow their speaking fees to be made public.

"Bill Clinton accepted a $225,000 speaking fee from the nonprofit Washington Hospital Center...The $225,000 payment wasn’t made public by the hospital on its annual Internal Revenue Service forms, but rather appeared among dozens of lucrative speeches by Mr. Clinton reported on his wife’s final ethics filing as secretary of state."

"Former President George W. Bush was a keynote speaker at the same conference this year, but a hospital spokeswoman said she could not disclose a fee because of a contractual arrangement with his speakers bureau." You can always count on republicans to hide the truth.

Of course it will. The only time Obama and the Democrats do anything for the good of the country is when it's also politically advantageous - which is more important.

Funny, it wasn't Obama who got reamed for the "47%" comment.

Obama won a majority of voters. You lost.

Your stupid attacks are just that.

A communist in charge with the best stock market performance in history!!

Thaty's why the capitalists on Wall St. supported him over Rmoney.
