    worried because he has his money invested in China so it enriches him and his likeminded uberpatriotic friends to keep cycling their money through a country that has the human rights model they wish they had here.

    Romney went to France instead of serving in our military, got rich chop-shopping US businesses and eliminating US jobs, off-shored his money in the Cayman Islands, and now tells us to "Believe in America."

      But if you take away early childhood education…Slash K-12 funding…And cut college aid for middle class families they won’t go far.
      Which is one "pillar: of their goals - to keep people ignorant, unhealthy and fearful.  Add in obedient and it's perfect, for 21st century feudalism.

        Instead of creating wealth, they extract it, like buying a cow on credit and milking her dry until she's dry without feeding her, then selling off the emaciated carcass plus the debt and using the proceeds and a fat new loan to buy the next one. So long as they can keep lining up successive suckers, it's sustainable, for them. And when they run out of suckers or cows, they can live off the profit they've hoarded.

        Romney is a defective and dangerous human being. Incapable and undesirous of producing anything of real value to society yet still very ambitious and greedy, he has eagerly sought out ever more ambitious ways of extracting value from other peoples' hard work and productivity, even if it destroys what they've created. He is a vampire capitalist, which is the RW capitalist model.
