How did we get here?
How did we get to the place where a candidate for the highest office in the land can have and hold millions of dollars offshore, in offshore accounts, outside the country just so, clearly, he can avoid taxation by the same country he is wanting to lead? How did we get here? How is that not against the same country he is trying to lead? How is that not rather a betrayal, at least, of this same nation? How is that not considered immoral? Are we not allowing anything-- virtually anthing --all in the name of profit and profits? And are we not even allowing this kind of thing for anyone and everyone if a potential next-president of the nation can do it? How and why do we allow this? Don't we all recognize that this has the effect of weakening the country, financially, at least, if not also morally?
