Good point about Congress, John. To be even more specific, who controlled the House, where spending bills originate? Mr.Goodman attempts to strengthen his argument by saying that some of these increases were created by executive fiat, but he does not include any numbers. I think his intent may be to say that electing Mr. Romney is not a solution in itself, which is correct. Conservatives have to be ever vigilant that our candidates hew to conservative principles and, more important, depend as little upon and contribute as little to government coffers as possible. Legal tax avoidance is now a patriotic duty.
