So as my 1 reader may have noticed I have been negligent in my blogging for a while. Well I am planning on returning at least until the election with more political feelings and leanings.
As it turns out the spy cam footage of the now confirmed GOP candidate at a fundraiser has piqued my interest, as it turns out Mister Romney while answering a question gave an honest answer (ZOMG I know) and that honest answer seems to have touched off a firestorm. Personally I don't see what the issue about what he is saying really is.
Not to mention that the video, and audio as admitted by the eavesdropper is missing at least a minute of Mitt Romney's answer. So how does one respond to this fact. Well easily I think that what Mitt Romney is talking about are those that game the system, those that don't work because they have found it easier to just sit at home and be on the government take.
He was not talking about those that put in the effort and either succeed or fail in finding a job that may eventually supplant their dependency on the government. Though what he did say within this video is that 47% of the voter base has a built in interest in voting for mister Obama over either himself or Gary Johnson, and that is that 47% of the voters want the status quo when it comes to their taxes. Though that isn't to say there aren't those in the 47% including some green soldiers who can see that our President isn't actually looking out for them. But none-the-less Mitt Romney is not saying that he wants to beat the poor into a pulp. And, as far as I can tell never has, but is merely asking for the other side of the everyone should pay their fair share. If, as the left loves to crow, that the 1% should pay their fair share of income taxes (and another question what is their fair share is it 40%, 60%, 80%, the left never cares to answer this question), Then why is it so terrible and so wrong to ask that the 47% put some of their skin in the game. Currently they don't, at least on the federal level.
Why is it so wrong for we as the 53% ask for the 47% to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
Just 2 cents for a return starter,
