In researching the reason that individuals, trusts and other entities choose to deposit their money in offshore accounts, such as in the Cayman Islands and in Swiss accounts, the overriding element seems to be secrecy. So much secrecy in fact, that the CIA had to make stronger attempts to monitor these funds, their sources and its flow, because it was suspected that Al Qaeda used offshore accounts, the same ones used by Mitt Romney as disclosed in his income tax reports, to channel money to its operatives.
It’s actually good to see that while money definitely plays a huge part in how an election turns out, that when people feel that they are being pressured to vote a certain way, they generally rebel against that and vote another way. You could feel the coronation of Mitt Romney was underway since the beginning of the Republican Primary, endorsements from the most high-profile Republicans came fast and furious and it rained money on his campaign and PACs. GOP favorite son, Chris Christie, in exchange for the “King Makers” promise of a Vice-Presidential nod, became Romney’s fan club presiden
We hold nothing against Romney and the amount of money he is worth, estimated to be around $300,000,000, in fact many Americans, as Romney said it himself, hate on me because they are envious of me. We would not take it that far either, we know of people that have nothing, but yet smile all day long, while working, eating, playing with the kids and enjoying sex with their loved “one”. Then we know those that have it all that seem miserable all the time, worrying who’s after what they have and making sure they never lose it. Of course most of us would welcome the chance to see if we could
It’s hard for us to know who the Tea Party will support in the upcoming Presidential election, but it appears they cannot stomach Mitt Romney, who himself does not openly endorse that movement either. His support for them is tepid and ends with the ideal that the Federal Government should spend less and be shrunk. The Tea Party support is easy to track, it went to Michelle Bachmann until Rick Perry jumped in, to Herman Cain when Perry imploded, to Newt Gingrich when Cain was publicly undressed and finally to Rick Santorum when Gingrich got “citizened” by Mitt Romney’s Super-Pac, but by th
The Iowa vote is in and it’s Romney by eight votes, and even though the Republican Party Chairman of that State said that the vote could not be certified for up to two weeks, he still congratulated Mitt Romney. You just get the feeling that before the Chairman went on television to report the results, he was advised to “seal the deal” for Romney as much as possible. Santorum is the story of the day, his meteoric rise after Gingrich got “citizened”, shot him up to practically tie for first place so fast, that Romney’s PAC could not get their attack ads up in time to attempt to sink him. R
That statement was made by Mitt Romney recently when asked a question at the latest debate. No, idiota, that’s not the theory of Democratic rule, it’s that Corporations should make record-breaking profits, but without breaking the backs of their employees or customers and it wouldn’t be a bad idea if in the future more Corporations shared some of those profits with their employees. This Democratic principle means you have happier, probably more productive and long-term employees than under any other scenario.
You hear Rush Limbaugh saying that this story is brought by the left-wing media, however more vetted and better sourced the story could not have been. You compare the stories that run on Fox News that end up disappearing after other media and people begin scrutinizing them and you can see the difference with the Cain sexual harassment story, because instead of going away it is beginning to escalate. That could be because of the gravity of the story, which we do not know yet or it could be based on the fact that Cain denied everything at first and then has been dribbling admissions every d
