It’s not difficult to understand why Romney campaign money and Mr. Romney’s tax returns are being kept secret. If they were made widely known to the American public, there is little chance they would put him in the White House.
The sources of presumptive GOP nominee’s funding says a lot about what kind of president he would be and what kind of America he would try to create. And it is very different than anything America has ever seen before.
The list of Romney’s biggest donors generally have three things in common. They want to be free to seriously pollute and exploit America’s air, water, and soil; they want to pay little or no taxes; and they want no limits on what they can do on Wall Street.
If Romney was completely honest with voters, he would tell them that he is not interested in serving anyone but his campaign donors. He would admit that he plans to turn America into a filthy, polluted dump, with virtually no regulations on Wall Street or banking, and wants to implement a massive shift of the tax burden from the rich, to the poor and middle class.
“The Republican Party is dominated by doctrines formerly on the political fringe,” according to the New York Times. “These doctrines have overwhelmingly failed in practice.” However, Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning economist adds, “Billionaires have always loved the doctrines in question, which offer a rationale for policies that serve their interests. And now the same people effectively own a whole political party.”
Indeed, thanks to Citizens United, the Koch brothers have already used their money to reshape America into the country that they want on the state level. Koch Industries Super PAC gave an estimated $10 million to Wisconsin’s union-busting Gov. Scott Walker in his recall election in May.
Now the Koch brothers and other special interest billionaires have their sights set on taking full control of the House, Senate, and White House in the 2012 elections.
If special interest millionaires and billionaires succeed in using their money to flood the airwaves with misleading advertising, that, along with voter ID laws that may block 1 out of 10 legally registered voters nationwide, mostly Democrats, could unethically swing the election to the Republican side. And once the new, radical GOP has complete control of the government and election process, there is little chance they would surrender that power back to democracy and representative government.
This carefully calculated move to dismantle democracy has been planned and executed in stages, with the culmination now targeted at the 2012 elections.
Mitt Romney is merely a tool in the secret war of the rich to gain control of the U.S. government. He changes positions on issues, keeps his Bain Capital dealings hidden, and has refused to release tax returns, perhaps out of fear that it would prove just how unfit for office he really is.
Rolling Stone followed the Romney money trail, and it leads to people who can fill their already huge bank accounts with more money than imaginable at the expense of the good of the country.
The 2012 elections are not about jobs, as Romney would like the public to believe. A look at his backers and what they want for their donations proves quite opposite. If elected, Romney will end America as we know it. Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, education assistance, programs for the poor, and a clean, safe environment would be gone. In it’s place there would be lower wages, fewer jobs, more people without health care, and a massive rift between the rich and poor.
That’s what happens when you shift taxes from the rich to the poor, deregulate Wall Street, and allow polluters to dump their toxic waste anywhere they want – all in the name of corporate profits.
Right now, Romney is the most dangerous man in America. Not just because of who he is, but because of who he is really working for and how willing he may be to sellout the nation for money.
