quote: A) A man who personally dodges most of American taxes and was fiscally tied to a policy of job outsourcing, who claims that the ability to balance a small affluent state's budget magically means he'll balance the bloated rotting carcass of entitlements and loopholes that is the federal budget.
quote: I personally really wish there was somebody besides Romney going against Obama, cause I would like to see him go, but Romney is not the answer and just comes across as a slimeball.
quote: No it's disgusting because he simply parroted the current stereotype on Romney as if it was fact. And used that to infer he somehow wasn't fit to be President.
quote: Basically Jason Mick has made Romney a criminal. Just like Obama has tried to do. But I don't think that's going to work this time.
quote: You're delusional if you think I'm praising Obama.
quote: I mentioned explicit facts.
quote: Also you either don't care, or don't seem to be aware that Obama's claims of Romney being some kind of mass "outsourcer" of jobs has been debunked.http://factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-ove...But see that's the danger of this stuff. The truth doesn't matter as long as it sounds good and juicy I guess.I don't have to make up stuff about Obama. I know the truth because it's evident in his record.
quote: "Facts" from a certain biased point of view maybe. Surely you realize it's intellectually dishonest to call someone a "tax dodger" who, in fact, paid all taxes legally owed. When Romney gets charged with tax evasion, you can make me eat my hat. Until then, chill with that rhetoric.
quote: However, you're quite naive if you believe lowering the corporate tax rate, income tax rate, capital gains tax rate, etc. will somehow lure those who use tax shelters (like Romney) out of regions where they pay virtually no taxes.
quote: Oh I'm not claiming that Romney was in charge of outsourcing, but what is true according to the link you sent me was that he maintained direct financial ties to firms that outsourced heavily.
quote: Jason taxes and tax shelters are not our problem.
quote: . The simplest way to shrink the economy in this country is to increase Government spending.
quote: 9. Public healthcare, implemented on a regional (as in several smaller states per jurisdiction).
quote: Outlaw PACs, corporate donations, union donations. Only allow capped direct individual campaign donations. Allow up to four candidates to run for president, regardless of party affiliation, based on a single national primary race.
quote: Outlaw PACs, corporate donations, union donations. Only allow capped direct individual campaign donations.
quote: It is part of the problem and there's one and only one solution -- a flat tax on all forms of income with zero exceptions.
quote: The simplest way to shrink the economy in this country is to increase Government spending. If people would just understand this simple fact, we would be a lot better off. By vastly increasing the spending and size of the Government, Obama has depressed economic activity and hampered growth. The Government doesn't have money, it TAKES it's money from us.
quote: My opinion is that neither Obama or Romney is fit to be president in the sense of fixing all the mess of the U.S. federal gov't from welfare entitlements, to special interest handouts, to a wasteful defense policy.Are either man fit by some other criteria (e.g. a track record of moderate successes, a measure of patriotism, etc.)? Sure, probably both are qualified.
quote: parroted the current stereotype
quote: Romney/Ryan is so much more stronger than Obama/Biden it's a joke. The choice is obvious.
quote: Are you debating the validity of some of those criticisms?
quote: My opinion is that there's a fair amount of truth in both sides' attacks. That's why they're so stinging.
quote: I give Ryan some credit for his fiscal conservatism, but Romney is hardly going to save the nation any more than Obama was going to bring "Hope" of ending the recession.
quote: Thus the only logical conclusion is to vote for romney. When the senate and house are republican controlled the proposals will fly through and they will litteraly, save the nation from the januari 1st doom. If Obama gets re-elected, the republicans *will* stall in the house, which is time you simply do not have after the inaugeration (which was januari 20th in 2009, 19 days longer then you have now). I'll add it in here that yes, while it is a hostage situation, the democrats would do exactly the same if the situation was reversed.Do note: I haven't said it fixes anything. By the time romney's first term is through the national debt WILL BE $20+ trillion, and $22 trillion is looking very likely if not more. It might very well be the economy collapses before his term is over because the hits you don't take in 2013 you will take in 2014. And the world's economy is no longer waiting for america to make decisions, the chinese have already made their move.
