"This is why America needs a Romney presidency. Romney will empower entrepreneurs by reducing taxes and by stemming the gusher of new regulations that are making life irrationally difficult for too many small businesses and startups."

But is it really taxes that make it difficult to get a start-up off the ground? Arguably, America needs a lot of things, but I'm not sold that Romney as President is one of them.

I've started three companies.

Taxes are not what make it difficult to get a start-up off the ground.

Finding a good investor is what makes it difficult to get a start-up off the ground.

Good investors will exist regardless of taxes, but good investors are hard to find.

"empower entrepreneurs by reducing taxes"

Yeh, the last thirty years of trickle down have sure done wonders. For the 1% of 1%, that is.

Oh, how I aspire to be that 1 in 10,000.

So? Go out and loot and pillage the economy and get everyone else to pay for it.

It takes money to make money. I don't have enough to loot and pillage.
