Nope, I'm Christian, was brought up that way and such. I think religion should be a personal option, not a blanket "mandatory" for everyone (I know it's really not, hence the quotes), much less someone "ruling", directly, or indirectly, from a set of THEIR values...

Anyone ever watch the vbs.tv series on the Mormon colony in Mexico where Romney still has family?

An AMAZING watch...

He didn't refuse the salary out of any sense of noble suffering. Jobs, Gates, and many others have parlayed this "He only took a $1 salary (or no salary" line of BS into sainthood, (they took no salary while they were rescuing apple, or fill in the blank) when in reality it's a tax dodge coupled with a slick PR campaign.


As to the other resident of MA who would vote for Romney, I wonder if the other resident had to deal with the very real property tax increases and user fees imposed on taxpayers of the Commonwealth while Gov. Romney was busy "saving" Massachusetts without raising (state) taxes but forcing municipalities to raise property taxes and doubling, tripling, and more fees and licensing rates. (In reality, Gov Romney had little to do with the budget situation in MA< but if he wants to take credit for the outcome, he has to take the blame for the route as well. In addition, the raising of licensing and user fees, the Assault Weapons Ban, Romney care (AKA budget time bomb) were all very much under the control of the governor's office)
Thanks for your explanation!
So, if I understand you correctly. Your beef is that Romney had financial gain through legal tax law ? Or is it more of a moral credibility issue ?

So if your posts diddle you off, certainly have fun diddling!! Play with MR.FX4, you guys are clones of each other and PLEASE do your best to ignore my posts!

Bye!
Based on your supposed financial statement that your income is in the seven figures. Would it be safe to say that the 47% that you claim to belong to, would be the 47% that support Obama? And not the 47% who are on Government assistance as you have previously stated ?

Just trying to help you out with your credibility !

Funny how the little details get in the way of the truth ?

I believe i remember that Obama took exemptions to get his taxes down too. Including donating the maximum amount of tax exempt money to accounts in his daughters names. I guess the left only believes conservatives should have to stay from scratch.

Selective moral outrage. Obama can't run on his failed record so he is making a big campaign out of small issues

That really isn't my major issue with Gov. Romney, more of a sidebar.

My issue with the tax exemption is solely that it's being played as a "noble action" by the Governor, doing the job for no salary, when the reality is that the financial gains he made by doing so far outstripped the money he lost while refusing the salary.

If Gov. Romney wants to run on his record in MA, fine.....but show the WHOLE record, and not just selective bits and pieces of it. He's being given a major pass by everyone on this.

Again, no, he didn't raise taxes.........he just forced the municipalities of MA to raise taxes by slashing local aid (if he wants to take credit for the "budgetary miracle of MA"), and raised user licenses and fees through the roof, which was actually something he got the legislature to go along with.

No one is making Pres. Obama out to be a saint and savior of a state because of his tax dodges, either. I haven't seen the fawning media making claims about him serving as President for no salary.

I have not heard anything about his governor salary, not saying purple have not but it is not being made a huge deal. I have heard alot on here and the news about Romneys taxes, something they have NOT done with Obama.
