    After Romneys shot in the campaign "bank arm" from the Koch Bros "millions"(which he does not have to tell how much the superpac gave him) he is spending it in Colorado.
    Where are his tax returns he promised the american people in December, he would produce in June?
    Why all the secrecy? I guess you cannot claim the Swiss bank accounts and Bermuda bank accounts. Legal tax evasion? Another wealthy perk.

    Dims babble on and on about Romney's failure to disclose his tax returns, but Obama spent millions to have ALL of his records hidden and don't think that is a shroud of secrecy? Any campaign donations made by the Koch Brothers are more than offset by the George Soros and Dim billionaires contributions.

    @Ancient-name calling? So it is okay for the GOP "people", to go on and on about a produced birth certificate. But the dems cannot point out that Romney has not produced his tax returns?
    Sheldon Adelson has spent more on the GOP superpacs than Goerge Soros spent on all the 2004 election cycle.
    What records are you talking about and how much?
    Talk about "dim" he has not really said what he stands for or bases his campaign bid on and you are putting him up on a pedal stool. Just against the dems,he has no moral standings but to get President Obama out. In Romney's govenor tendor he voted and did more in a democratic way than a republican. He is whishy – washy at best. Fippy – Floppy at least.

    That would be none of your business, and why we have curtains at voting booths.
    But for your info, the last man I voted for was George Wallace. I was in the third grade (mock election held for students). And the only reason I voted for wallace was b/c my dad was voting for Richard Nixon and mom, Hubert Humphrey.
    Even before I reached legal voting age I figured out it's all a scam. Government, Wall Street, Religion, Medicine, even what is passed as "science" is mostly theory. History? LMAO. each country has their own version...mostly all lies.
    Until a man runs on the premise of abolishing organized religion, I won't even be considering voting.
    OK. My turn to ask YOU a question: Who did Jesus and his early followers support or vote for? The apostle Paul was a Roman citizen. Who did he support politically?

      Not to put too fine a point on it, but to turn your kind of reasoning back at you: is Romney running against Carter?
      Lol. Couldn't resist.

    Good morning, all.
    Obama Mama, still fighting the good fight, I see.
    The political climate in this country is SO polarized, it's not even remotely funny...
    I saw this to the people who do not vote, (as I have said to people I know who do not exercise this privilege): political opinions mean absolutely zip if one is not going to use the easiest, most basic tool one has to try to effect change.
    I have a friend who says she doesn't vote because (get this!) She doesn't ever want to be called for jury duty!

    I would think that he could not vote being jewish and that slaves could not vote.
    Stature in the time was considered and I do not believe he was of high stature. So I do not think he could vote. Who he supported I do not know. Who?
    I would not have voted for Paul (saul) because he did not support women in the church, to vote, to have any say in the church, to hold any kind of authority in the church.

    @Obama Mama. Jesus was raised by jewish parents. But even as a boy he was correcting the false teachings of jewish religious leaders. By the time he was 29, he was calling them children of satan in public.
    Israel was occupied by Rome at the time, and only Roman citzens were allowed to vote. Israel's internal affairs, like liquidating christians, were handled by the Jewish High Court, The Sanhedrin. (Paul, before abandoning Jewry for Christianity, was himself a Pharisee leader)
    Jesus nor his followers, including those like Paul who enjoyed dual-citizenship, ever voted for anyone! They were taught that God's kingdom is no part of this worlds governments, and became true believers.

      Then if you do not vote, you cannot say or change anything. If you run though, you can change and make what is wrong right.
      You have to have a dog in the fight.

    Paul was also a trained athlete. Trained to hunt down christians and kill them as many jewish men like himself did. Paul admits in his bible writings that he himself was "foremost" among jews killing christians for sport.
    Of course Paul abandoned this jewish traditional killing of christians when he became a christian himself. And of course he didn't support any Roman political movement that would take the pagan Roman Empire and forge it into the Holy Roman Empire.
    He rather predicted that men calling themselves followers of Christ would get involved in politics and do this very thing!

      History repeating itself? And did he go to Hell because he was a murderer?
      If you change your color does it make you more pius?
      In changing himself to a christian or trying to make himself seem more pius, try to make himself more gracious in the eyes of the people he converted?
      I think that being less religious makes you able to not be distracted in what needs to be done, and do it because it is the right thing to do, not because someone says it is the right thing to do.
