The recent brouhaha concerning Mitt Romney’s tax return was finally settled when he release his tax returns earlier today. What, wait, what’s that? This just in, Romney releasing his tax return settled NOTHING! All it did is provide fuel for the class-warmonger’s fire. The Reuters headline: Romney returns show low tax rate; questions linger. There’s a real surprise. Let’s review this a little more.

Romney made a bunch of money and paid a bunch of money in taxes. Well, to those who love to stoke the class-warfare fire, this is a giant bellow to get the embers white hot. Romney paid over $6 million in taxes, and that’s not enough because the tax rate is about 13.9% of his income. How dare he only pay $6,000,000.00 in taxes? It’s an outrage!

Here is what should really happen: Mitt Romney should pay 100% of his income in taxes. That’s what will fix it. So let’s do some math:

Romney made $42,000,000.00 million in income.
The national debt grows at approximately $49,000.00 per second since Obama took office. (Source. Please read the whole thing before you reply that the debt only grows at $16,000.00 per second)
So, if you divide $48,000,000.00/$49,000.00, Mittens would pay for 979 seconds of the national debt. That is 16.32 minutes of interest free living because of old Mittens. WooHoo! That’s it…it’s settled! Take it all from every rich guy!

Well, when the class-warmongers realize that you could take every penny, from every rich guy and it wouldn’t make a dent, you can bet that they will look for you. Their appetite is insatiable. Stop worrying about what the other guy has. In the end, it’s envy and jealousy.

At LibertyInfusion we are not very big fans of ol’ Mittens the RINO, but we do like those who struggle to succeed and don’t condemn those who have. It’s also worth quoting Martin Niemoller who was interned at Dachau Concentration Camp by the Nazi’s:

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.

It’s only a matter of time before you’re rich.
