ACTUALLY...This is the man that is the Republican candidate for President. The man with extreme social agendas; the man that will demolish Medicare; make education more difficult for our young people to afford;  repeal the Affordable Care Act and all it's benefits for women, "get-rid" of Planned Parenthood, and who will reduce taxes on the wealthy while increasing taxes for the middle-class (to the tune of an additional $6,000 per year).

I'm asking you to read these issues and then see if you can honestly, with no hesitation, vote for Mitt Romney for President of the United States.

First of all, he has an aversion to being completely honest, and seems to feel hiding behind his past is a better option than full disclosure.  And, because he plays by his own rules has decided that he won't release past tax returns.

He invests his riches in foreign accounts insisting that he has received no special tax savings from doing so.  Romney owned a shell corporation before it was transferred  to his wife as a blind trust. According to the Bermuda government "non-resident investors can buy, sell shares or fund units, make bank deposits, etc., without the fear of taxation of any kind.  Specialized local exempt companies and trusts are available for those who wish to use Bermuda for asset protection or for holding international assets, and are equally free of taxation". He is, in my opinion, certainly more than lacking in ethics.

Mitt Romney is consistent in one thing.  He lies about his past business experience i.e. Bain Capital; accomplishments as Governor of Massachusetts; and he did not save the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games - the American taxpayers did. 

The SEC has forms that show he didn't leave Bain Capital when he said he did.  It's hard to argue with the SEC, but give him credit, he tried.  When indeed did he really leave Bain Capital and all the responsibilities that went with his office as CEO? 

Romney is very vague about everything he is asked, and sometimes doesn't even answer.  He has a habit of changing the subject and often ignores the question.  He is famous for flip-floping on issues - of course he says he doesn't flip-flop, he "evolves".  He is known by some as "multiple choice Mitt".

He is now facing scrutiny as he courts veterans and makes his case to those who have fought in Iran and Afghanistan, while asking for their vote as commander-in-chief.  In 1994 he told the Boston Herald, "I was not planning on signing up for the military.  It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam, nor did I take any actions to remove myself from the pool of young men who were eligible for the draft"  But according to the Selective Service records he received four draft deferments....then ran off to France.
