Although it would not be right for government to put the bigger burden on the poor as both rich and poor citizens lobby FOR THEMSELVES.. only rich fools try to pay as much taxes as possible and Romney is no fool.. The important information is that Romney gave a lot in philanthropy (almost 40% which is VERY GENEROUS) and that tells you something about the man.. he also walked away from a lucrative CEO position from Bain to seek public office which is similar to Obama that sought public office over wealth.. Both have noble intent to serve, though different ideologies.. I like Romney and I think both Romney or Obama make excellent choices though they will both implement their own "experiments" and that's exactly what it is... an "experiment"..
Personally, I like Obama's concepts slightly better but Obama also had his chance and he's accomplished most of what he sought to do.. Not sure what he's aiming for now.. Romney needs clear ideas and convey what he's out to accomplish and how he will do it if he wants a chance at the presidency.. I don't discriminate against the rich..
Globe article highlighting the ability of the Canadian government and electorate to face up to the deficit and take out the axe back in the 90's and the challenge the US is faced with.
American politics at the moment seem incapable of that kind of consensus. Neither side gives ground until one of two things loom -- disaster, or a congressional holiday. (And the former tends to cause lawmakers to punt, rather than embrace a real solution.) In Canada, electoral losers tend to behave as such, clearing a path to getting things done. In the U.S., the electoral losers do everything in their power to block their opponents. And these days, there are more checks than balances.
So where does this leave us? After an ideologically charged election, the U.S.’s political leaders will have to take steps to shift the debate to neutral ground – as Mr. Martin said Tuesday, make it a question of “arithmetic” rather than an unwinnable struggle over the merits of “small” and “big” government. That could take a second deficit commission, or at least a president who is focused on little else. It seems unlikely that could be done in less than a year. If interest rates stay low, that’s enough time. Mr. Martin said he senses that U.S. officials believe that will be the case. He’s not so sure. “I would suggest to you there is a tipping point,” he said.
An elite new world order banker paying a lower tax rate than the middle class is very difficult for most people to understand. I do understand any person's desire to minimize their taxes. What tell's me a lot about Mitt Romney, however, is that he prefers a rigged game to a fair game when it comes to taxes. Why wouldn't Romney support a flat tax so the poor and middle class, who have mostly had their lives turned upside down by his elite class, could pay a rate down at his level?
Attention Mitt Romney: Russia Has a Flat Tax and Almost no Debt
Romney was simply doing his job by helping Monsanto reinvent itself. Financially speaking, he succeeded immensely. However, he’s signaled that he would lift up the agricultural giant even higher should he become president; for one thing, his Agricultural Advisory Committee is packed full of Monsanto lobbyists and partners.

How Mitt Romney Helped Monsanto Take Over the World
Dr. Earl Beaver, who was Monsanto's waste director during the Bain period, says that Bain was certainly "aware" of the "PCB and dioxin scandals" because they created "a negative public perception that was costing the company money." So Bain recommended focusing "on the businesses that didn't have those perceptions," Beaver recalls, starting with "life science products that were biologically based," including genetically engineered crops, as well as Roundup, the hugely profitable weed-killer. "These were the products that Bain gave their go-ahead to," Beaver contends, noting that Romney was a key player, "reviewing the data collected by other people and developing alternatives," talking mostly to "the higher muckety-mucks."
Let me sum up for you; he has a MBA but works as a cab driver working 60 hours a week while trading full time. He can't afford a pair of shoes but has trading account. " It's complicated" he said. Oh, did I mention he has posted 400 times in the last 2 week from 8 am to midnight. I guess they do not sleep Canada. You can make your own conclusions on what he is actually doing here.
I putting him on ignore because I am tired of his diatribe he perpetrates on this thread.

Trade what the market is doing; NOT what you think its going to do.
What I always find funny is how vitriolic some people are about US politics ... who themselves aren't Americans.
That doesn't mean that you aren't welcome to your opinion - you are, of course - but why is it that you never see Americans opine with such fervor and alacrity when it comes to, say, Canadian politics?
And, I'm glad that you clarified that you believe that Mitt Romney is at the vanguard of the New World Order.
I'm a Survivor. My life got steam rolled by the financial crisis, caused by Romney's people in the NWO. I've taken my skills and abilities and invested 100% of my soul into learning the markets and becoming a professional trader. I lived through the financial crisis the hard way. Your insults are not welcome. Neither is your candidate. I'm tired of bankers running the world.
