To be fair, the OP is a pretty good person. She's just passionate about the results of the past election. I'd never let her passion in that regard affect my views on her as an individual.

I can see why they do it though.

If they DID succeed in getting him to release the tax returns and they show, well, whatever it is that they hope it will show, then they could easily just send the paper back in time and alter the outcome of the election.

See, it does make sense to totally ignore the actual politics going on and march for the release of tax returns instead!

(Seriously, you coordinate a 150 city wide march, and this is what you protest? My God..)

Nevermind that, what the ef ever happened to reining in the IRS?
Institute a flat or fair tax and whack the IRS down to size by firing 95% of them.

It's amazing to watch people defend Trump hiding his tax returns yet were on board with him accusing Obama of being a Kenyan Muslim who needs to release his Birth Certificate. Then when Obama obliged, these same people accused it of being fake. Whatever moronic opinion they hold, Obama did release something.

But these people defend Trump in hiding his taxes, something no president has done in decades.

Such hypocrisy, much ignorance. They shouldn't be allowed to vote because they're all partisan hacks who don't give a damn about the country, only their party and hating anyone who isn't apart of it.

Politics is a joke.

Actually, they COULD march and protest some things that just might be a little bit more important than demanding a citizen reveal private information that the law does not require them to show.

Like say: World Hunger?
Disarming Nukes?

Cleaning up water around the world?

The IRS in general?

Term limits for ALL politicians?

Child Abuse?

But nah.....let's make a bunch of signs and whine about someone's private tax information.

This is what is wrong with the world.

After how liberals decimated the antiwar movement, just about any activist efforts of any sort at this point are entirely awe inspiring. Milk & cookies in place of bread & butter!

I didn't state my opinon as fact and it wasn't meant as a insult. That is just always my impression when i read about these "important" marches who in the end accomplish nothing at all.

HUH!?!

I'm not a Christian, or a Conservative. For the umpteenth time.

I am now worried that you might have some sort of anti-memory neurodegenerative disease, that you're not even aware of, at this point.

Get well brother. The worlds needs you appeal to humor!

So typical. Trumpets blaring for fearless leader.

He's a messiah.

He does no wrong.

We love him.

Well hopefully nobody at these marches gets themselves so worked up and scared that they start crying.

Looks like nice weather for a walk in the park, though!

Life must be good when all we have to protest is the idea we cannot see someone's tax returns.

Yeah why are people so stupid to not see that Fat Kim,Assad and Daesh are just normal people who are just misunderstood and did nothing wrong. Please. People who i consider braindead rushed to defend Daesh because a MOAB was dropped on them in the middle of knowhere. You have the audacity to call us hypocrites? Look in the mirror. Btw the other side voted for a cheating Leprechaun who got caught and people still didn't care and voted for her. The tolerant left alienated Trump supporters left and right but if they dared to give contra the left hid in there Starbucks and accused us of being bigoted,racist,fascist and whatever.

I wished both sides of the fanatics would clash once and for all and the sane american people could finally move on from all this bs. They behave like Kindergarten children. We are not glowing in the dark and that means Trump did the right thing calling Fat KIms bluff. Trump is not stupid no matter how many times you repeat it it dosen't make it true.

Lord knows Trump supporters sure have a lock on being partisan hacks and not caring about the country, right?

Shouldn't be allowed to vote?? Do you see the problem with that statement? I won't point it out for you.

Clue: since you have a different opinion, you shouldn't be able to vote!!

So we can know if the reform issues he tackles arent for his own benefit.
To make sure he has no conflict of interests.

Obama didn't need to show his birth certificate either but public pressure from the alt right required it.

The irony of complaining about a group of people that dislike those who disagree with them...

..while simultaenously suggesting that they shouldn't be allowed to vote because the member disagrees with them is amazing.
