Default Romney Taxes

I don't care. If I were him I would try to evade as many taxes as possible. This indicates loopholes in the tax system.

And guess what, even if he did pay taxes- HE WOULD STILL BE RICH.

Romney worked hard for his success. Obama got affirmative action.

Evade taxes? That's illegal. Some loopholes are legal; some loopholes are legally questionable (people just take aggressive stances when filing their taxes). The other question to ask besides legality is are the tax strategies that he is using ethical?

EXACTLY. Thanks for making the Democratic Parties point. Paying some more in taxes and Romney would still be rich. Yet cutting taxes on Romney and his pals will mean cutting benefits and services to people who will, well, die.

You're right, his prior experience as a community organizer was sufficient.

Well said, many Americans find all kinds of ways to dodge taxes, some of them are rich and others are middle class. There is nothing with finding ways to avoid taxes

Why is it the left wing idiots only focus on romney and his taxes but they never look at all the corruption of bark whosain obama

1) There IS something wrong with finding ways to dodge taxes. Paying your taxes is part of your patriotic duty to keep this country running. You are also fooling yourself if you think that the middle class has the same access to tax code largesse as the top few percent do.

2) Here's why the left is focusing on Romney in this tax return issue: http://www.barackobama.com/tax-returns/

Whats good for the goose is good for the gander....

Income taxes are theft, replace it with some kind of consumption/sales tax

Nope he was lucky enough to have his book become a bestseller when he entered the 2008 campaign.

You can't play both sides of the field. If you are going to insinuate that Romney is illegally avoiding taxes than YOU need to put up some proof.

I'd argue that Affirmative Action IS racist in itself. Reverse racism or what you call it but it gives people an unfair boost based solely on race. In fact AA screws Asians like me over because we are too smart for the CA education system and we feed the top universities around the nation.

Duh, no one thinks AA is a good thing, just a net good thing - a necessary evil, an injustice to keep a much greater injustice from continuing perpetually.

But AA has nothing to do with Obama being elected, and despite his policies and actions all falling firmly in line with 1990s Republican orthodoxy, he's been more frantically and zealously opposed by conservatives than any other Democratic president in recent decades. Combine that with the constant dogwhistle racism ('food stamp president,' protest signs with him as a witch doctor, birtherism, claims that he's a 'secret Muslim,' etc) and it's hard not to suspect that a white guy named Jacob Smith doing the same things would be treated an awful lot differently, even if still obviously not welcomed by Republicans just because of how politics works.

Brain didn't insinuate anything.

OP used the statement: "If I were him I would try to evade as many taxes as possible."

Brain pointed out that evading taxes is illegal.

If there was any insinuation of Romney evading taxes, it was done by the OP.
