This is in response to Ms. Emma Cline’s letter concerning Mr. Romney’s tax records.
Since he is not under IRS investigation we know he paid all taxes owed. We also know he is a very successful businessman.
The personal attacks on his character and honesty show the depth of fear his opponents have.
Ms. Cline I ask you, Why does Mr. Obama keep his college records sealed? Why is it a secret, how he financed his college education?
Your party publicized and beat to death George Bush’s college days, especially his being a member of a secret society, “The Skull and Bones.” So, Ms. Cline, if it is good for the goose, it should be good for the gander.
If you believe Mr. Romney should open his tax records, then Mr. Obama should open his college records.
Your quote from Roosevelt, is to me, paraphrasing a quote of Karl Marx, from “The Communist Manifesto,” “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.” Since Roosevelt started our network of social programs we have slowly digressed from a country of prideful givers, to a country of you-owe-me takers.
I close with another of Marx writings, the theory of communism may be summed up in one sentence, “Abolish all private property.” This Ms. Cline, to me is what you and your party are seeking. Recent history has shown that socialization cannot, and does not, work.
