Don't worry your free ride is almost over. Romney is going to stop the 46% of Americans who don't pay tax from getting a free ride. He is going to stop all welfare handouts!! And the 40% of Americans who don't pay ANY TAX and are on Social Security and Military retirement handouts your free ride is also over, as it should be in the new America.
I disagree

The briefs, so-called temple garments, worn by Mitt Romney, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, are quite different from those worn by Pres. Obama, a mainstream Christian.

I'll vote for a non-Christian who acts like one than a confessed Christian who acts like anything but.

I don't care what or who their God is, the job is running the government, it’s not a religious position. Separation of church and state is a founding principal of our government.
I am just tired of the 15 year financial slide the middle class has endured. We keep going downhill when the net worth of the richest Americans grew by 13 percent in the past year alone to $1.7 trillion according to Forbes

Romney ia firmly on the side of money and not with the majority of hard working Americans who need money to survive, not just a way to keep score. YEA Romney.

Explain how one class of people getting a better deal than another class of people is fair. I pay 18%, Romany on a good year pays 14%, on a bad year a whole lot less. My 18% actually has MUCH MORE impact on the way I live than 14% does for Romney.

"Criminalizing success" is just another stupid comment you heard on TV by some well-paid talking head trying to pump up ratings. As Hitler once said, Tell a lie often enough it soon becomes the truth. The rich in this country have the money to tell that lie till hell freezes over. They have told the lie about “trickle down” until a lot of folks believe its true. When fact is it has NEVER worked. Money is the root of all evil has a ring of truth in today’s world.

Quit whining like a child and grow up.
Your 18% equates to how many dollars? And Romney's 14%?
Get a life.

I have tried, but you are just too dense to understand. If I make $60,000 and pay 18% I have 49,200 left. If Romney makes 50 million, and pays 18% he still has 41 million. My $49,200 is gone in 9 months with house, car, insurance, utility payments ect. Romney on the other had is not going to miss the 2 million in extra taxes he pays. He also consumes more tax dollars than I do. I don't need an airport to go to work, I also need a harbor and the Coast Guard for humongous boat, etc. Got any idea how much the Feds spend on local airports and harbors!?!?

You can’t tell me why its not completely fair for the very rich to pay the same percentage as middle class Americans can you?

You might take a moment to get to know Mitt. He is the equivalent of a Pastor in the mainstream Christian religion. Read this article by a Mormon explaining the subtle differences between what Mitt believes and what conservative Christians believe.
Its a huge difference, but is that important?

In an interview days after Romney announced on a Saturday that he had picked Ryan, George Lemieux said,“Based on what Romney did this weekend, I would not vote for him.” Lemieux, a 67-year-old Vietnam War veteran who spent 26 years in the Army, declared that “Ryan wants to decimate Medicare; he wants to decimate the V.A. I have a brother who is dependent on V.A. disability, and he wants to cut it out entirely.”

http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/0...

Your source for news is only giving you the information they want you to get. DON'T watch FNC, MSNBC or listen to talk radio for a month, it will do you and this country a world of good.
Stop bringing rational thought and analysis to the table, dammit.

We're old, we're white, we're dependent on government programs, and we gotta pretend we aren't.

We live in a state that is subsidized by other "blue" states, we can't survive without government assistance and programs, we're old, we're white, and we gotta pretend that black guy who saved us from the greatest depression ever created by Right Wing Wackos, is a bad guy.

We hate him, because when we see him, he puts the lie to the paradigm through which we see life, and it scares us no end.

Your damn facts get in the way of our fantasy, and we don't like it one bit.

Now take your facts and rational analysis and go back to Planet Earth, we'll stay here in Right Wing World.

economic growth helped narrow the gap by $207 billion compared with last year.

The Treasury Department said Friday that the deficit for the 2012 budget year was DOWN $207 billion dollars. Tax revenue rose 6.4 percent from last year. The national debt is down, government's revenue is up. More people got jobs and received income. Corporations also contributed more tax revenue than in 2011, up 6.4 percent from last year, according to the Treasury Department. The stimulus spending is fading and the effects of the investment incentives are showing.

Independent economists are also predicting exactly the same increase in JOBS as Romney claims he will add with his "plan". Only problem is the independent economists say this will happen no matter WHO is President.

Sorry, the debt is up not down.
The stimulus extended the recession and the national debt is up 50%. The stimulus was and is a wretched failure.
The taxpayers will continue to pay for the government purchase of GM and the education funding to the states was used to pay for unfunded pensions by diverting what would normally be spent from states' general fund. Keep spinning if you like, but most know that this guy, even after 4 years of OJT is way out of his league.
