"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I've commented a lot, but I don't think I've taken a position. I think that a canidate for office should, early on, be complete about his financial history. In MI we had a canidate that had off shore ownership of a logo that was essentially rented back to his corpperation. Nothing illegal about that, but I find it very revieling about how he might behave in office; and, I think other voters did also. Also, when looking at a canidates businesses, it was interesting to find that a business address, one of many associated with a canidate, when looked up on Google Maps street view was clearly inapropreate for the type of business. I couldn't find where the real HQ offices were.

Please show me what law he has broken?
And please show me where in the Constitution that it requires that a POTUS candidate must publicly release his tax records?
If he has broken no laws and no rules on the subject - then he has done nothing wrong on the subject.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
