Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has come under pressure to make public his tax returns: We know he pays tax, but how much tax? A moment of disclosure from the former Massachusetts governor who says most of his income comes from past investments. Most of us pay, lets say a little more: Mitt has told us he may release his tax returns in April, but his rivals want him to do so sooner. Grover Norquist, is the president of Americans for Tax Reform.

He needs to open his eyes. There is nothing wrong with raising revenue. In fact, in my opinion, if my country needs my money, they can have it!

There is no doubt about it: Mitt Romney is the pure representative of the 1%.

He does not work and gets the yearly wage of a MainSt worker in one DAY if it is true what I heard and I calculated right.
When I immigrated to the USA somone told me, welcome to capitalism central. Yes, welcome to a country that blinds its people by boasting about being the land of the free. A groundless claim because one truth is not considered but valid. The rich rule over the poor and the borrower is servant to the lender, as Salomon says.

So what went wrong? You cannot serve both, God and riches says the Bible.

And in this respect the 99% of the USA are responsible as well. As long as they refuse to accept Christ as King of King, supreme lawgiver and head of all governments, they will not have a free society. Democracy is a smoke screen. It is ruled by the rich. Currently more than ever because of the huge national debt.
