I want to state this up front, I DO NOT SUPPORT MITT FOR BRAINS!

Alright.

One more time. I DO NOT SUPPORT MITT FOR BRAINS ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT.

Got it?

This 47% comment has been a real thorn in Romney’s side for about 2 weeks and doesn’t seem to be dying off…similar to a little gaffe that Obama made concerning who did or did not build their own businesses.

I am not part of the 47% and even if I was I could not speak for all of the other people in that 47%. Much as neither Romney nor Obama can. But they both seem to be willing to do so.

Here is the Romney quote that everyone is up in arms about:

“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what.”- Mitt Romney
He is wrong, but I see his logic. If you are a freeloader (don’t kid yourself there are many many freeloaders on the government dole) you won’t “bite the hand that feeds you”, so to speak. Why would they vote for a guy who might take the free ride away from them? He can’t change the people that are freeloaders so he doesn’t seek to. It makes sense, but what he said is incorrect.

Where he goes wrong is that he makes the assumption that because 47% of Americans don’t pay income taxes they are all free loaders.

What it means is that as a result of the current tax code 47% of Americans don’t have to pay income taxes, just like how the current tax code treats dollars held in accounts in let’s say….the Cayman Islands differently than dollars held in accounts in the United States. Catch my drift?

Don’t blame the workers of America who do not pay income tax….they shouldn’t have to, in my point of view the income tax shouldn’t exist.

I think what Mitt Romney said is total b.s., but I’m not about to waste my time foaming over it.
