The first president or presidential candidate to release tax return information was Richard Nixon, our 37th President. Every president since Nixon has released their tax returns except for Donald Trump, our 45th President. Income Tax, the basis for tax returns, came about due to the 16th Amendment to the Constitution which was ratified in 1913. So 10 Presidents before Nixon also did not release any tax information.
Releasing of tax information is not a requirement to become President. And quite frankly if President Trump hasn’t paid a dime to the Federal Government in income taxes then good for him. The income tax is one of the worst amendments to our Constitution that should be repealed and replaced with the Fair Tax.
The enforcement of paying of income taxes through the IRS is a violation of the 4th Amendment where we as citizens of the United States should be secure in our persons, houses, papers, and effects. It is also immoral, please pick up the book “UnFair: Exposing the IRS“ for details on that subject.
President Trump has the right not to expose his income tax returns to the public. And we the people do not have the right to view them under any circumstances.
To announce a running mate before securing the nomination is generally a bad move. This holds true in both major parties. History will repeat itself. On Wednesday Ted Cruz announced that Carly Fiorina would be his vice president. This is of course if he wins the nomination and the election. Both are unlikely at this point.
Almost immediately after Carly Fiorina dropped out of the presidential race herself she endorsed Ted Cruz. I always wondered why she did that. During her campaign she never had anything nice to say about Ted Cruz. It was a bit of a surprise when the endorsement came. But now we can see why. She gets the VP spot should they win.
Does Carly know or even care that Ted Cruz is just using her? Ted Cruz is a political pimp and Carly is now his girl. To be used as he sees fit. And discarded when no longer useful. Does she even care? Or is she, just like her master Cruz, a seeker of power for powers sake?
As for Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina is but a tool. One that he has now in desperation plugged into his failing campaign. She is to be used in the Indiana effort to block Donald Trump’s coming victory in that state. She is to be used as his token woman. The flip side of the Hillary Clinton coin to garner support of women. And since she is a native Californian, Ted hopes to gain delegates from her connection in the Golden State’s primary. But that’s just California dreamin’.
In truth, Carly Fiorina will do little to help Ted Cruz’s campaign. Her views on a number of subjects makes my skin crawl. She is hardly one in support of Liberty. If she were VP or even President. She would have further forced the issue between Apple and the FBI. Siding with the FBI. She made it very clear during her own campaign that our 4th Amendment Rights were revocable for the security of the nation. Her campaign failed against Donald Trump. Ted Cruz’s campaign is failing against Donald Trump. Tag teaming The Donald isn’t a winning move.
