    Both Romney and Obama pay only what they owe and not a cent more. Until you are willing to accept and deal with that, and willing to demonstrate that as a patriot you pay more than you owe, your posts on the subject reek of hypocrisy.

    That is 100% perfectly and completely honest.
    fantastic. I would bet that Romney pays exactly the same rate of taxation that you do on FICA, and that he pays a higher income tax as well.

    I don't think that Obama has enough money to justify a tax haven.

    It doesn't tell me anything, but that he is financially smart. Being a patriot has nothing to do with how much you pay in taxes. There is no "putting the nation first" in your own financial and economic decisions. Business is business, and taxes are a legal, not moral, obligation. I don't tend to judge a president by his feelings and false proclamations, but by his sense and ability to make sound judgements. We don't need a daddy, nor a mommy, but a strong leader who has some actual working ideas and understands how an economy works, not just what he envisions the nation should be.
    Anyone who pursues their own advantage lacks credibility as a public servant by default. Its not really part of the calling.

    He does not since the vast vast vast majority of his income is exempt from FICA due to the current cap of just over $107,000.00. What he pays on FICA is a miniscule percentage compared to what I pay and what 93% of American wage earners pay.

    I am not criticizing Romney or anyone else for taking deductions open to them. I simply am saying that me as a citizen and voter want to hold the President of the USA to a standard as Patriot #1 who places the nation and its people above their own personal financial interests.

    That is not hypocrisy. It is a standard I apply to ALL people who ask me for their vote for President of the USA.

    So, to you, a person is not patriotic unless they pay more taxes then they legally have to pay?

    Re: Did Mitt Romney go a full 10 years without paying taxes?

    The real questions are: Does it feckin matter? Is the answer going to change your mind?

    Damn few people licking Romney anus today were licking Romney anus six months ago. That's a fact, and you can go back and look that up if you are so inclined. I'm going to suddenly vote for Romney because it is determined that he was a tax paying mofo? Don't insult me.

    I'm not voting for Obama either. The presidential campaign has been dumbed down to the point that even I am insulted and I'm originally from Georgia!

    It's all gotten so bad that I don't listen to jack**** about either candidate because:

    1. I am feckin sick of it. I am fed the **** up with it from both sides. This may be difficult for some of you to accept, but I'm more intelligent that 98% of the people that both parties are slinging **** at.

    2. I'm still voting for Gary Johnson. In fact, I'm voting for him with even more conviction than ever before. Johnson represents more of what I believe America can be and should be than the country under Obama and Romney combined.

    3. All the positioning bull****, caca, blather and tripe is so goddamned old. I want America back. The GOP and Democrats took it away. No way in hell do I believe those rat bastards are committed to giving it back.

    So, iyo, is it unpatriotic to buy stock in a foreign based company (like BP petroleum, for example)?

    Is it unpatriotic to buy a foreign manufactured car (like a German made BMW or a Japanese made Toyota)?

    Is it unpatriotic to buy a foreign-made computer?

    Gary Johnson is the only candidate that will not drastically harm America were he President, imo.

    And as a bonus, I think he would actually help America...a rare thing for the guy in the oval office.

    I sarcastically voted for the first one. He paid every bit he was required to. I just support a move to up the requirements
