Only Mitts dad is allowed to use welfare guys, only he can be a "parasite", a "moocher"..etc. Duh!! Get with it.

Listen to the amateur again. He's talking directly about people that created business and stating that they didn't. He's an ignorant socialist spewing nonsense. Our earliest businesses were built when we only had cart tracks and ferries and Indian Traces.

"but you should pay less tax?" he gave away more to charity than he pays in taxes. all totaled about 40% of his income goes back out. when the obamas where working professor and lawyer and making $200,000+, they donated under 2% to charity. biden even less.

"the working poor and the elderly should pay more tax" these people you speak of pay zero income tax. when the dems want to raise they head straight for 'sin taxes' on gas, alcohol and cigarettes, all the stuff poor people buy. those are the most regressive taxes out there.

you only see a couple dozen people and many of them seem hispanic. you must not be aware that america is 70% non-hispanic whites so i don't know what your racist head thinks a true american is?

What a dipshit. Once again you can look behind him and there are NO blacks, hispanics or really true Americans. You see just the puppets.

except that obama wants tax the living shit out of anyone who's made some money, only to waste it on bureaucrats.
