    I think Mitt Romney's refusal to release his tax records is because he has been hiding his TRUE pre-tax income from the Morman Church.  If he releases his records, the Church will know that he has been stiffing them for years!  Just saying.....

    I couldn't agree more.  If the Crhristian Right folks see that Romney has been lying about his tithe as much as he has been lying about everything else they woulld abandon him in a heartbeat. What chance would he have then?

    Greygoose - Topiary Donkey - I was thinking on the same line as the two of you. His Church donation and many more others.  Mostly, his Church Donation.  His claim that he is giving his church the 10% yearly income donation. He make $20 Million a month X 12  =$240 Million/a year and 10% of that   = $2 million 400 thousand  Wow!  This would be his yearly donation to the Mormon Church, no exception. OK, maybe he does not want to give that much every year.  And if he makes more that $240 Million, that's gonna be so stiff for him.

    Mona, I am  OK with how you feel our money has been spent, I am not OK with disrepecting our President.  Just that discredits any thing you have to say or how you feel. Our President, Barack Obama has done more for you and your money if you only looked into it.  Our taxes are at there lowest ever, I mean ever. And this is going to you not someone that really can go day to day not having to worry about what will happen to thier family.  Be less critical and try to find the facts not rhetoric.

    I think it would be very difficult for Romney to stay up in his high Bishop status, leadership of the Mormon church, if he betrayed the church by not paying his 10% donation to the church (called a "tithe"). A "tithe" is actually Biblical. And in the Mormon Church, a 10% tithe is Mandatory, not Voluntary. It is required by all Mormon church members, whether they
    are rich or poor. But their church has a lot of helpfulness in it, built in, to aid those who need help. So I try to keep an open mind about it.

    But if Romney happened to have a few extra million$ hidden away in secret offshore bank accts, and did not pay the required 10% to the church, it would not only show him to be dishonest in dealing with the church, but he would OWE them potentially million$, -- & then owe tons of extra taxes to Uncle Sam.

    Not only is "tax evasion" a serious offense (maybe a felony?) -- but what would the repercussions be if the church leadership thought that Romney was being deceitful to the church, & to the Latter Day Saints?  Who would be deceitful & dishonest to GOD??  What kind of personal character would that exhibit?

    I think Romney may be more afraid of the Mormon church elders, than even of the IRS.  I hope he is not in serious trouble, It would not
    look good for the USA, in general, to have a major candidate for President of the World's SuperPower, who is a "crook."

    Also, why would a devoted US citizen want to keep their money offshore?  Doesn't he TRUST the Banks of the USA?  And WHY would he
    not trust the US Banks?  Does he know anything indicating an imminent collapse?  Or that the CEO's may all be crooks?

    I try to keep an open mind about Romney. Since in the past he took a few stands for "liberal" ideas, (like pro-choice), and good healthcare for Massachusetts, similar to Obamacare (alias Medicare) --- I think deep down he may be a good guy. Time will tell.

    If you think that Romney, a smart business guy would not cover all his bases before even throwing his name into the presidental fray, then you underestimate not only his business savvy, but also his intelligence and moral convictions.

       WOW......... never thought of it that way.  But, you know...... you've probably hit the nail on the head.  Funny I haven't heard that one before.  Good thinking though.

    Obviously he didn't otherwise he wouldn't have kept his money 'off-shore' and be afraid to release his taxes.

    As for his moral convictions - He has NO morals whatsoever. He will say and do whatever he has to to obtain his goals. He is nothing more than a spoiled brat, bully, self-centered, lying SOB! The only people he respects and treats well are his family and I have to believe they are no better than he!

    In my opinion Romney is a psychopath ( Medically defined as someone who chronically lies and steals). That is why people can not warm up to him and why he does not inspire trust. He is not a man of vision or compassion.He is a bankrupcy manager who is presently a schill for a small fraction of the 1%, and he is lying to the American people. If he is elected there is no reason to believe that he will treat the country any differently than he did with the businesses! Remember the auto sector, he said to let it fail. If that had happened there would a depresson and not just a slow reccovery.
     The trouble is that the the media is in the hands of too few and over 40% of Americans have been brainwashed by the pro republican media and those are the very people that he will hurt. Obama, is a good man who needs  the voices of all democrates to overcome the lies of the 1%, their republican schills and the compromised media.

    This is very possible. Not certain why he is so adamant about not releasing more returns. His wife saying "the more we release, the more we will be attacked"... is simply ridiculous. Hello, you're running for President of the United States. You NEED to be MUCH more transparent about your life and finances.
