It is frustrating to me to listen to people who's intellect and consciousness can't travel far beyond the "Gotcha Politics" that can bring a warm, soothing spirit upon them for the moment.
The latest scheme that has been running involves Mitt Romney's use of tax havens around the world.
I must be honest - as I listened to the above radio broadcast I found myself saying "I WOULD DO THE SAME DAMNED THING if I had the money". The most logical defense against a group of people with a mindset to confiscate your money is to PROTECT your money from their slimy hands.
In as much as moving out of the city, county or state has not worked, it is reasonable to follow the law and park one's money outside of the country.
What many of these people can't accept, however, is that there has been far, far, far more deprecation in the TAX BASE of the places that they now control after they erected their "confiscatory taxation scheme" than there is in the estimated $9 billion loss in corporate revenues that the tax avoidance schemes have produced.
There is not a single post that I have made endorsing Mitt Romney. I plan to leave my vote for President blank.
These series of observations are focused upon YOU - and how you are made to act AFTER OBAMA has taken the stage and caused you to compromise yourself.
