Bill Bain and All Capitalists, not Mitt Romney, Killed Joe Soptic’s Wife

Political hacks closely associated with the president of the United States recently associated Mitt Romney and his business partners and practices with the death of a woman.  This follows their unending plea for copies of Mr. Romney’s tax returns, as if knowing how much he pays in taxes is more important than, say, whom he’ll name as Secretary of the Treasury or whether he thinks a trade war with China is a good idea.

The resounding responses from the GOP political hacks and the Romney campaign are “Mitt left to run the Olympics long before his partners killed that woman” and “You’ve offended our pristine political sensibilities with all your lies about murder and tax returns.”  What a crock of crap.

That’s the best they can do?  No defense of business as a vehicle to deploy capital and generate profits.  No explication of the complexity of the decisions that advance that purpose.  No “it’s none of your damn business how much money I have or taxes I pay.”  Instead we get a defense of political campaign boundary lines and “Mr. Reid, put up or shut up.”  These people are not living in our America, they’re in a cocoon called Washington, DC.  They’re shocked and disturbed by a television ad, but comfortable, no enthusiastic about a $3,800,000,000,000 annual budget.  Really!?

Why doesn’t someone say that CANCER KILLED HER after she and her husband had been gainfully employed for years, including some years by a company that was owned for a while by a group that included Mitt Romney.  During his tenure at that company, Mr. Soptic and his employer were parties to a contract pursuant to which he traded his labor for pay and benefits.  In no discussion with his boss would Mr. Soptic, a free man, have been told that he owed his life to the company or vice versa.  He worked, they paid – even trade.

In a free country, Mr. Soptic and his wife were not entitled to have another man or woman toil so they might eat or have health insurance as a shield against cancer, earthquakes or any other acts of God.  Mr. Soptic is a free man, and free men care for themselves by working, sometimes with other free men, to create wealth so as to minimize the suffering and damage caused by tragedies.  A free man doesn’t whine about it being a strangers’ fault that he did not provide for his wife’s medical needs . . . unless he is being used by venal men who covet power over other men.

It’s pretty clear who is in charge – political hacks who care more about their ability to use Mr. Soptic as a prop than they care about the loss of his wife.  They are more concerned about holding political power than they are about preserving and protecting your freedom and mine.

They want you and I to toil so they might eat.  I refuse.

Bill Bain did not kill Mrs. Soptic, nor did I.  I’m going to push back – when will Mitt Romney?
