    Illegal tax-free gasoline is great for Democrats but bad for the American people? Democrats break the law to cut their cost of gasoline? Where is this change?

    Report: Democratic Convention’s Hosts Getting Tax-Free Gas

    Report: Democratic Convention’s Hosts Getting Tax-Free Gas - America’s Election HQ
    The committee hosting the Democratic National Convention this August in Denver has been taking advantage of tax-free gas through the city of Denver for the past four months, according to a report by the Rocky Mountain News.

    The newspaper reports that, once the practice was made public, an aide to Mayor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, issued a statement Tuesday saying that members of the committee would pay full market price for gasoline, including the 40 cents a gallon in state and federal taxes.

    Committee members apparently have been allowed to fill up their tanks at city pumps. The city doesn’t pay taxes on its gasoline, prompting questions over whether the host committee would be exempt from the taxes as well when they reimburse the city for the gas.

    Colorado Attorney General John Suthers said the practice “would seem” to be illegal, and he referred the matter to the state Department of Revenue, according to the Rocky Mountain News.

    Hypocrisy and corruption in a political parties? What a shock. Anyone who supports either the Dems or the GOP is a fool.

    I think it's time to stop paying income taxes in protest.
    This is the only lingo politicians understand.

    If 50 million taxpayers did it, what would happen?
    Do you think the Treasury Dept will arrest and prosecute 50 million Americans?

    Can you think of a better way to take the Govt back?

    The debt would sky rocket? Is this a serious comment?
    The debt is sky rocketing and the media has brainwashed conservatives and Liberals to think this is good. Example, cutting a Govt program is viewed as bad.

    Yeah, vote, but not for the establishment.
    You have not noticed, but the media controls these elections for the most part, not the people.
    You do not see the bias in the media and the flat out lies?
    The media promotes the candidates that will bring them the most advertising revenues from their daily reports.

    I'm a former lobbyist, it's all about Lawyers making laws that benefit Lawyers.
    The media brain washes Americans that are potential jurors. Example, the hate for Corporations.

    You are the establishment, you just don't know it.

    IMO, the key is to get "Lawyers" out of politics and 90% of the battle has been won.
