    He who controls the means of communication -- can  prevent being exposed.  Secrecy is important to the sleezy. And it is good business to eliminate competition.

    An educated populace is dangerous to plutocrats, oligarchs and just general bullies.  

    Kill the messenger is a business tactic.  

    We should expose what exactly is wrong about Mitt's "25 years" in business.   (It is also the main flaw of "privatization" of public functions.)  A private company has the right to hide ---- to protect from theft by competitors --- it's formulas, production techniques, and business practices.   He has depended too long on being able to thumb his nose at truthseekers -- even subpoena can't usually defeat this ploy.

    Public Service is not just a nice sounding set of words.  The moment you seek publicity in pursuit of election ---- you give up your right to privacy.  You have become a public figure.  You can't sue people for libel  for saying stuff about you that you don't like -- even if it is untrue.    Journalism 101 -- John Peter Zenger.

    He DOES want to run America like a business -- with all the monkey business shielded from scrutiny.  Trouble is that in this scenario WE are the boss --- not just stockholders to be bamboozled.    WE are the boss and WE do have a right to know the truth.  

    He still thinks we don't need to know if his offshore companies are dealing with enemies of the US -- which could show up in tax returns.   He still thinks Nixon "secret plan to end Vietnam War" is a good pitch --- so we should be okay with his "secret plan"  to use magic math (voodoo economics) to turn less straw into more gold.

    Willard Romney went to town,
     riding on his phony,
     stuck a feather in his cap,

    and repeatedly denounced those who claimed it was plucked from Big Bird after his hard work hunting that varmint - --

    47% baloney.
