A Dialogue with Mitt Romney & Supporters

Hello Friends & Critics

No, I am certainly NOT entitled to Romney’s money. I am ONLY entitled to what I earn.

However, Romney and the ELITE class, those SUPER RICH who firmly believe that they should NOT be subjected to higher taxes are plainly wrong. There are millions of Americans who religiously pay their taxes to the government.

Unfortunately, historically the ELITE have and continue to pay taxes that are much lower than the average American in comparison to their annual incomes & accumulated wealth.

The average American also does NOT evade taxes by siphoning off millions into off shore accounts in Switzerland, Cayman Islands, Bahamas and other countries that are tax havens for the SUPER RICH, narco-trafficers, arms dealers, diamond and bullion merchants & many other unscrupulous people from around the world who do not want to pay taxes to their respective National governments.

The tax evaders conduct constitutes nothing more than a crime against his / her own country. Whether that country is named United States of America, Colombia, Iran, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Norway, India, Singapore, Malaysia or Australia.

Paying taxes is a legal, moral and a patriotic obligation of every person in America. Whether they are citizens, green card holders, seasonal workers or tourist.

Yes, even tourist pay taxes but not on their incomes but on the products and services they buy while they are on American soil. Examples, hotel taxes, food taxes at restaurants and supermarkets, gasoline taxes at gas stations, entertainment taxes at the cinema and recreation & theme parks such as Disney World in Florida or Disney Land in California.

Americans who indulge in causing self inflicting wounds to themselves by coming to the defense of unscrupulous Americans who wear a garb of respectability, thanks to their wealth need to learn how society, government and citizens are inter-related in forming a NATION such as beautiful America.

I hope this clears up any ambiguities or misunderstandings that may have risen in the reader’s mind.

Thank you.

SCREW EVERYONE…FOR I AM MIGHTY MITT

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE – MITT ROMNEY‘S NET WORTH IS ESTIMATED TO BE OVER $200 MILLION (USD)

Only hard working fools pay taxes, while Romney gets to hide his millions in Switzerland, Cayman Island & Bermuda. Off shore banking Mecca for drug smugglers, crooks, thieves, politicians from around the world and unscrupulous people who actively cheat their countries, citizens and governments, by hiding their illegally accumulated wealth.

Mighty Mitt is truly a patriot for taking care of his own country, pay no taxes, evade taxes with the help of like minded lawyers, tax consultants and bankers.

REMEMBER WHEN THEY QUESTION YOU?

BOMBARD THEM WITH FALSE INFORMATION, HALF TRUTHS & MIND BLOWING TALKS ON THE WAR ON TERROR

AND YOU CAN ALWAYS LAUGH ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK IN GENEVA OF COURSE …

Hello friends & critics

I would like to share a list of good books, that I have read over the years.

Government Sanctioned Killings Around the World – Capital Punishment

CAPITAL PUNISHMENT BY THE NUMBERS

THE KING CAN DO NO WRONG…at least that is what they want us to believe in. I for some reason was under the impression that Thomas Hobbes theory titled “Divine Rights of Kings” was ancient history. However, this is not the first time I have been proven wrong.

Well here is a synopsis of Amnesty International’s report titled “Death Sentences and Executions 2011”.

  • Total of at least twenty (20) countries executed people.
  • The youngest country in the world South Sudan too carried out capital punishment.
  • In the year 2011 at least 676 executions were carried out worldwide. In the year 2010 at least 527 executions were carried out worldwide.
  • The 2011 figure jumped significantly due to “increase in judicial killings in Iran, Iraq and Saudi Arabia”.

(A)   Capital Punishment in USA:

  • Amnesty Int’l is at odds with Washington D.C. for being “in its dubiously bad place on this fundamental human rights issue”.
  • The USA is the only country in the western hemisphere or the among the G8 countries (USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Russia & Japan) to kill its prisoners.
  • USA has the 5th highest number of executions in the world.
  • Number #1 spot goes to China
  • Number #2 spot goes to Iran
  • Number #3 spot goes to Saudi Arabia
  • Number #4 spot goes to Iraq
  1. The State of Texas, located in southern United States, carried out the largest number of executions in 2010.
  2. Texas executed thirteen (13) human beings in 2010
  3. If Texas was a country it would take the 7th spot in the world. Ranking between North Korea and Somalia.
(B)   Capital Punishment in Mainland* China: 
*The death penalty is not practiced in Hong Kong or Macau, which are separate jurisdictions under the “one country, two systems” principle.
  1.  The minimum age one can be sentenced to death is eighteen (18).
  2. Fifty-five (55) crimes carry the death penalty, ranging from murder, treason, drug trafficking, aggravated murder, armed rebellion to bribery and smuggling.
  3. Crimes such as theft of cultural relics, killing of Pandas, no longer carries the death penalty
  4. Thirteen (13) other crimes, including VAT fraud, smuggling relics and credit fraud, were only recently removed from the list of capital offences.
  5.  Many human rights monitors, NGOs & watchdog groups strongly believe that actual numbers are astronomically higher than the official records on executions.
  6. According to Dui Hua Foundation, China executed some 5,000 people in the year 2009. This number is higher than all the executions carried out around the globe.  The exact figures may never be known, since the Chinese government regards them as a “state secret”.

Organ Transplants & Capital Punishment in China:  

  • In 2009 Beijing publicly admitted that two-thirds of all organs used in transplants in China are taken from executed prisoner.
  • For decades a underground economy flourished at the expense of the dead and young conscripts in the armed forces.
  • Under the prevailing law, organs can only be taken from condemned prisoners if they give written consent, however the law is rarely followed.
  • Today, the Red Cross Society of China educates the public and encourage them to offer their organs for donation. The Chinese Red Cross has created a vast database of potential donors & financial assistance is given to under privilege families of such volunteers.

Author’s thoughts: When a government puts an individual(s) to death, it is nothing more than premeditated murder. Here, the state is the (bad) actor who commits a crime which wrongfully causes the death of another human being. Wrongfully because, life belongs to the liver [no pun intended], the intended recipient and NOT to Kings, Queens, nobility or governments. The human institutions do not have a right to take life away from the “condemned” in the name of justice or retribution.

The state actor rationally considers the timing, method and means of the execution so as to bring certainty that death occurs and the “condemned” will die when such methods or means of execution are applied on his humanly body.

In my humble opinion violence begets violence. Life is too precious and government’s have no right to take it away. Two wrongs do not make a right. The alternative is life imprisonment without possibility of parole. Live & Let Live. ~ Please, spread the word. Thanks.

Voltaire – Freedom of Expression is the right of every man, woman & child.

Francois-Marie Arouet de Voltaire, commonly known by his pen name Voltaire was a satirical polemicist, who criticized many of the intolerant, religious dogmas that were practiced in France and on the European continent.

He was a strong intellectual challenger to the French government, laws, & its officials. For his free thinking and outspokenness he was jailed several times and even sent into exile. His books and commentaries on civil liberties, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, and most important of all his arguments on separation of church and state helped shape the world in many respects.

Voltaire’s arguments, principles and maxims are embodied in the written Constitutions of many free democratic countries.

Voltaire is credited with the following quotes – 

(a)  “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it”.

(b)  “I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write”

Author’s thoughts: Exercise your fundamental right by joining me in spreading the word. Please, share the blog with your family, friends, acquaintances, and everyone in your community. Keep the communication flowing and help transform the world for the betterment & prosperity of humankind ~ Thank you.
