You can learn a lot about a candidate from their tax returns.
With Trump not releasing his tax returns, he is breaking a long held tradition of Presidential candidates being transparent with their tax returns.

It just amuses me that here not that long ago (and many other places), the 1% was the big topic of discussion. The injustice.. the sad distribution of wealth.. how a tiny % of the worlds population owns almost all of the worlds money.
And here we have Trump.. who it is rumored claimed nearly a 1 billion dollar loss that would exempt him from paying taxes for something along the lines of 10 years. But.. I guess the whole 1% thing is now passe? Or perhaps it's just selectively passe. Tax returns? Pffft.. irrelevant! Amazing how quickly opinions can blow with the changes of the wind around here.

He does not have to release them!
There is no law that says he does!
It is TRADITION that is screwing up the US political system.
It is broken! The people need to fix it.
