NEWT SAYS HE’LL GET RID OF CASTRO AND AMERICA IS HAVING A COLLECTIVE COW OVER MITT’S TAX RATE OF 13%.
But haven’t we seen this movie before?
As a Cuban I can tell you going back fifty years that all the Republican candidates for President came downto Calle Ocho, Little Havana, USA and shouted out “VIVA CUBA LIBRE” and the Cuban exiles bought it. That is why there is a disproportionate number of Cubans with a Republican Party affiliation; unlike other Hispanics, the Cubans are gullible and not well informed. The typical recalcitrant Cuban will tell you that only a Republican will overthrow Castro and I have seen from Eisenhower to Obama eleven Presidents have come and gone and Castro is still there.
When it comes to Mitten the Kitten we suspected that he was not paying his fair share. No, he is not doing anything illegal nor is he stupid. Romney is simply protecting his interests, his immense wealth is the motivator to make him say things like “Corporations are people, my friend” so that it is the fact that he has such low tax rates points to the unfairness of the way we tax our people. It is not a fair system, it is rigged by years and years of tax reductions for the wealthy and the placing of loopholes that allow them to amass all this wealth. And amass they have to the point that we are living under a terribly unfair and askew distribution of the wealth.
