    Then you might have a problem with fvoring other nations and other people instead of the USA.
    Using the tax code to your advantage does not equate to "favoring other nations and other people instead of the USA."

    Let me ask you this -- do you take any deductions on your taxes? Since our debt and deficit are so large, maybe you should stop -- and put the interests of the USA first.

    This statement is true for Obama as well.

    Democrats who plan to block the man want those tax returns.

    Me, I look only at the taxes Romney paid.

    HE pays more in income taxes than Obama earns.

    So, since this is true, why do Democrats want returns on the man they do not support?

    Bear in mind that Democrats did not watch the republican convention.

    To them it was just lies so why watch it.

    Had they watched it, they would have learned that when Romney got married, his table to eat on was an ironing board.

    I mean, with all his advantages? LOL

    Yes, the man started with virtually the shirt on his back and has paid far more income taxes than Obama has. I do not see Obama ever catching up to Romney as to paying federal income taxes.

    Exactly. If Romney's tax returns showed that he paid 75% income tax rate, Obama supporters still wouldn't change their mind and vote for Romney. So why do Obama supporters care whether or not Romney releases more of his tax returns?

    What were Romney's earnings? Don't democrats claim he makes 21 million dollars per year? They sure claim they know all about his income since they run about making all kinds of claims about his income.

    I have two statements.
    Romney pays more in income taxes by far than Obama pays. Obama has real guts talking about how much is paid in income taxes.

    Romney by virtue of the religion he belongs to pays just his church a tithing of 10 percent. If he really earned 21 million dollars like democrats claim, since that is money donated for charity, he pays a lot more to charity than Obama does.

    It takes Guts by Obama to make this an issue given that Romney pays far more to the Feds and the charity.

    the fact that Romney is not in prison with Wesley Snipes is all the proof we need that he has paid all the taxes he was legally required to over the past 10 years. how much is irrelevant.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Paying taxes isn't the only qualification necessary to become president.... I'm not voting for him because I dislike his economic policies. More so, I'm in stark opposition to the conservative movement in and of itself. Paying taxes is cool, but so is presenting a viable economic solution.

    so what "viable economic solution" has Obama put out that makes him any better than Romney?
