    I think the longer Mitt Romney sits on his tax records the worse he will look if he ever releases them. In a previous interview Romney had claimed that he would consider releasing tax records, when and if, after a general election victory and not before. The longer he waits, the more deceptive and guilty he looks.

    Why aren't candidates and campaign supporters mandated to tell the truth and nothing but the truth to run for political office or face severe consequences.?

    How can the new super pac ruling by the conservative Supreme Court be over ruled? Isn't this ruling an affront to equal representation for all and allowance for the super wealthy to gain even more control and influence for their agendas?

    All I know is the personal scale used to determine if things are going in the right direction. Am I better off now than 3 years ago? No, lost 1 job, got another, but at lower pay.

    I wonder why none of these Republican hopefuls have been asked to produce their Birth Certificates.
