    Especially considering I've been saying I won't vote for Romney even months before he become the Republican nominee. Let your religion tell you all "sinners" are Republicans, though.

      When Mitt's percentage is lower than mine, then and only then will I believe all this drivel you keep posting.
      And now for FlagDUDE08's "Lessons on How to Confuse a Democrat"

      Lesson #101: Democrats only understand percentages. Whether it's 1%, 13%, 35%, whatever it may be. So, when you're in conversation with them, throw in the number "101". They won't understand, because you can't possibly have 101%.

        Sure you can. Just like you can divide by zero. I understand the difference just fine. Also the argument works the other way. Basically your argument is if someone making 50,000 a year pays 5,000 in taxes and Mitt makes 26 million dollars a year and pays 10,000 in taxes Mitt has met his tax obligation.

        That's BS, and you know it.

          Amazing how you look at Obama's taxes and he gives very little charity, a much lower percentage than Romney, but we never hear a word about it. But, that would infringe upon the media's carefully crafted re-elect Obama narrative, so it's DOA.

            It's the same argument, because you are still making a percentage comparison. You just aren't putting in a percentage sign. Nice try.

              If that's what the tax code allows, then yes, he has. As a few of us have said to you and others, if you don't like the taxes being paid by the 60% (appx), then petition your elected representatives to change the tax code.

              Why do you think the flat tax and fair tax have a lot of proponents? Because those that make (or spend) a lot would pay a lot. Works for me.

                That's because the left are stingy tippers. They know that, come April, they must tithe. Or whatever the equivalent is for whatever wacky percentage they have in their mind today.

                    True. I recall seeing a study came out, what, a few months ago, and found that most of the states where residents on average gave the highest percentage of their income to charity tended Republican, while most that gave the least tended Democrat.

                        That's because Democrats like being told what to do.

                            And I saw a study that came out that Blue States receive less Federal Tax Money back from the Government than Red States. What's your point?

                              So Republicans give the most in charity, and receive the most from the government. Congrats on that I guess...

                                I think your missing the libstain point. Their argument is not about how much is being donated, but rather who it's going to. It has to go to them. It has to go to their church. It'd be like living in Ithaca and making a large donation to Harvard University. Sure, you're being charitable, but because you're not being charitable to the local Ivy League college, something is wrong with you.
