More, More, More: Democrats on taxes, spending, Romney tax returns, etc

No problem is ever solved and unless Republicans vote for the next bill the Democratic Party introduces, they are racist-sexist-homophobe-bigots that care not for the poor and disabled

It appears that Mitt Romney has learned a Rush Limbaugh lesson that also answers the question posed by the Andrea True disco song’s chorus:

More, more, more
How do you like it, how do you like it
More, more, more
How do you like it, how do you like it
More, more, more
How do you like it, how do you like it

Conservatives don’t like it and are happy that the GOP presidential nominee says no to higher taxes, no to increased government spending, and no to the release of decades of personal tax returns and the inevitable anal exams by the pro-abortionist party meant to distract the attention of voters from the economic misery they are experiencing. Rush Limbaugh has long bemoaned Beltway/Establishment Republican attempts to appease Democrats by accepting their premises, treating them seriously, attempting to respond to them with reason and expecting them to anoint us with their imprimatur as caring human beings.

Poppycock!

The game started in the late 1960s with LBJ’s Great Society explosion of social welfare spending. How were elected representatives to prove that they cared about the poor? By fostering a vibrant economy with policies that encourage investment and private sector job creation? Please.

No, the way Republicans have always been judged by Democrats and their liberal media sycophants is whether they are for the NEXT law that asks for more spending or more taxation or more regulation. The ante has now been ginned up for over 40 years (see chart above showing how Obama tripled the Bush deficits) with Americans now at a debt-crisis tipping point with the see-no-evil Democrats again demanding more, more, and more of the same.

And by the way, Mitt Romney, show me your papers!

Did you pay taxes on the profits of that lemonade stand you ran in Michigan as a teen and Bain Capital compensation as an adult? Import duties on escargot you brought back from France as a young adult Mormon missionary? No word on whether Barack Hussein Obama’s family declared any dog meat at Hawaiian Customs upon return from the Indonesian years.

Mitt Romney and all Americans that earn a minimal income and higher must file tax returns with the Internal Revenue Service. If one breaks the tax laws, the IRS can charge you with a crime. Only then does one lose their privacy.

Mitt should maintain his privacy and, rather than provide David Axelrod with more opposition research material, focus his time on scrutinizing tax returns that President Obama’s policies have fostered that report so much less income earned by so many unemployed and underemployed Americans.
