I’m confused and I need your help! There are supposedly millions of people in the world who believe a Republican is actually going to beat Obama and win the 2012 Presidential election. Of these fine people, many think Mitt Romney will be the leading candidate. You know, the one who on national TV bet Rick Perry $10,000 bucks on something he claims he did not say. Way to really connect with the American people Mitt! The average household income is around $55,000, and you’re talking $10,000 bets?!
Mitt Romney’s 13.9% Federal income tax rate on his $21.7 million 2010 earnings is a lower tax rate than an individual making $60,000 a year. Yet, for some odd reason, Republicans believe the middle class of America won’t be bothered by this fact and revolt against an “evil rich person” who is out of touch with America. Come on folks, people are selfish and greedy! If we can’t have our strawberry cheesecake, nobody else is going to have it too! We’d rather have the cheesecake rot on the sidewalk for the mice to eat.
There are millions of people in America who are willing to vote on a candidate to raise taxes on other people without being willing to pay more taxes themselves. I’ve written time and time again that this is not right, and we should fight for equality every single day. Discrimination is not OK if you are not being discriminated against! But, I also realize people don’t really care what I say, or whether other people are being discriminated against. People vote with their pocket books, baby! Everybody else be damned!
