Lol... You guys are just so butthurt it cracks me up.
We don't hate him for being rich, we hate him for being a bullshitting succubus who's only out to further his end of the financial spectrum, squash any social progression into the ground and lock us into perpetual international war.
How old are you, anyways? I'm just curious.
Apparently too old to laugh. How sad.
When the fuck did I say that? Never. What I would say is that those who are more successful feel they are less responsible towards their country nowadays. Let's be honest, if I can afford to give up, say, 25% of my income to taxation without any additional loopholes, exemptions and such that someone who makes 100x as much as I do could easily afford the same and still have 100x more than I do left over. Where this got lost along the way I have no idea but the notion that once you've made it, fuck everybody just doesn't fly with me.
Let me just say that you have no idea how hard I've worked to claw my way to where I am now. I've taken our small family company and grown it into a pretty successful outsourcing firm that now deals with fortune 50 companies on the regular. Romney fucked my company HARD when he passed Romneycare- have you looked into what he did here in Mass??? It's a law now that we have to carry insurance- which we did anyways- but now that it's a law and he did nothing to regulate the industry itself our insurance premiums have skyrocketed. That cost me a CNC plasma table, two product lines and untold income. I mean shit man, all the junkies love Romney- Romneycare here in Mass means that MassHealth recipients owe NOTHING, get care that makes mine look like a slap in the dick for free, and if totally fucks the working people among us because we literally pick up the tab in our premiums.
At least know what you're pushing for or angry about, because Romney is so far from what he says he is it isn't even funny. I mean can YOU tell me how Romney plans to balance the budget while increasing military spending, going to war with Iran and signing promisary pledges to change the constitution in favor of religious doctrine if he's elected?
If you can tell me how, I'm listening. Seriously. I've been waiting for his plan to be released, but he has none. His track record speaks volumes to his real intent and it has nothing to do with what he says he's going to do. I'd LOVE it if we had an actual conservative person to vote for, but he is not what he says he is. That's where my problem with Romney lies. I don't mean it as a reflection of any class warfare because shit man, I want to be rich someday too. I don't mean it as an insult to your personal beliefs either, I just think you're holding steadfast to an IDEA rather than the reality of the situation. No hate, just don't aim that bullshit at me, man. My stances are based on direct experience with the tax code, legislation and until I see some black and white that tells me what he's planning or he repeals this bullshit romneycare that makes the dems look downright stingy, he doesn't get a fucking atom of props from me.
Please direct your anger elsewhere in the meantime, thanks and have a great day.
