I'm not exactly a Romney fan... but I think he speaks the truth here, and he does so eloquently:


"It is disqualifying for a modern-day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters, especially one who has not been subject to public scrutiny in either military or public service. Tax returns provide the public with its sole confirmation of the veracity of a candidate's representations regarding charities, priorities, wealth, tax conformance, and conflicts of interest.

Further, while not a likely circumstance, the potential for hidden inappropriate associations with foreign entities, criminal organizations, or other unsavory groups is simply too great a risk to ignore for someone who is seeking to become commander-in-chief.Mr. Trump says he is being audited. So? There is nothing that prevents releasing tax returns that are being audited. Further, he could release returns for the years immediately prior to the years under audit. There is only one logical explanation for Mr. Trump's refusal to release his returns: there is a bombshell in them. Given Mr. Trump's equanimity with other flaws in his history, we can only assume it's a bombshell of unusual size.

(Anticipating inquiries regarding my own tax release history, I released my 2010 tax returns in January of 2012 and I released my 2011 tax returns as soon as they were completed, in September of 2012.)"

You guys are so silly, you'll never learn. Trump is simply keeping his name in the news; he's the headline, and you're writing it. If there were anything wrong with his tax returns, the IRS would be handling it.

To me it's not wrongdoing on his part so much as the reality behind the showbiz. Like that Joe Biden who only owns his house gave more to charity, what dodges he uses to avoid tax that aren't available to you or me or what I suspect, that his wealth is a myth.

The IRS would prevent his election?
