Operations Plan:

1 -- Step 1A: You, Mitt Romney, make millions of dollars by buying troubled companies, increasing their debt and then allowing them to go bankrupt, all with the result of reaping millions of dollars (and parking your plundered earnings in offshore tax havens) ( http://www.alternet.org/election-2012/matt-taibbi-reveals-how-romney-made-his-fortune-it-aint-pretty-and-he-shouldnt-be ).

2 -- Step 1B: You, Mitt Romney, make millions of dollars by buying trouble companies and then closing them and shipping their jobs overseas (and parking your plundered earnings in offshore tax havens) ( http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/romneys-bain-capital-invested-in-companies-that-moved-jobs-overseas/2012/06/21/gJQAsD9ptV_story.html ).

3 -- Step 1C: You, Mitt Romney, attempt an effort to make millions of dollars by teaming up with a Chinese company (Haier Group) to purchase an American company (Maytag), with the result of attempting to send those jobs to China (the effort failed) (http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=amvfWt5_l3z8&refer=asia ).

4 -- Step 1D: You invest in companies (Stream International and Modus Media) to assist American companies to outsource technical support services, thus shafting jobs in the United States.

5 -- Step 1E: You increase your earnings by taking advantage of tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas ( http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/04/fact-check-tax-break-for-shipping-jobs-overseas/ ) and "sticking it" to the middle class who have to make up for lost governmental revenue.

6 -- Step 2: You hide the possibility that you, Mitt Romney, as the Republican nominee for President, are a felon for not paying US taxes on foreign earnings (hidden in a Swiss bank account before a whistleblower blew the whistle on some of those accounts) by not reporting your tax returns prior to 2010. Review of those tax returns would indicate whether or not you took part in the IRS forgiveness program of 2009, thus proving you violated the laws of the US and were a felon. ( http://middleclasspoliticaleconomist.blogspot.com/2012/07/is-noose-closing-around-romneys-tax.html ).

7 -- Step 3A: You obtain potential votes from uninformed voters by changing your positions at any moment in time and then changing your positions again and again (you are well known as being a "flip flopper" and "Mr. Etch-A-Sketch"). Of course, obtaining the maximum number of potential voters is required to get your poll numbers within the margin of error in order to safely carry out the final step of your Operation Plan (indicated below).

8 -- Step 3B -- You hide the fact that you are a pathological liar by lying at the Republican National Convention, lying at the Presidential Debates, and lying all throughout your Presidential campaign. ( http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/09/08/mitt-romney-616-lies-in-33-weeks/ ; http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article32719.htm ; http://truth-out.org/news/item/11943-at-last-nights-debate-romney-told-27-myths-in-38-minutes ); http://truth-out.org/news/item/11983-gingrich-admits-romney-wasnt-honest-about-tax-plan-during-debate ; http://cleantechnica.com/2012/10/04/debunking-romneys-90-billion-lie/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+IM-cleantechnica+(CleanTechnica) ; http://www.ourfuture.org/blog-entry/2012104110/its-been-one-week-debate-how-many-lies-has-romney-told ; http://hinterlandgazette.com/tag/mitt-romney-lied-under-oath-stemberg-divorce-case ; etc., etc., etc.). This is required to get your poll numbers within the margin of error in order to safely carry out the final step of your Operation Plan (indicated below).

9 -- Step 3C -- You hide the fact that you were a Bishop in a church (some Christians call it a "cult") ( http://www.biblebelievers.com/jmelton/Mormons.html ) that was "founded on deception and continues to build upon that deception and can be interpreted as a religious Ponzi scheme and swindle" ( http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article32806.htm ; http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/11/02/how-mormon-doctrine-shapes-romneys-world-view/ ) and "has little respect for women" ( http://www.counterpunch.org/2012/08/30/an-ex-mormon-woman-looks-back-at-the-church/ ). You take advantage of the fact that Christian Fundamentalists will hold their noses and vote for a Mormon in order to get rid of "the black guy" in the Oval Office with the result you will get your poll numbers within the margin of error in order to safely carry out the final step of your Operation Plan (indicated below).

10 -- Step 3D: You hide the fact that several Catholic bishops (speaking on behalf of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops) stated that the proposed Ryan budget "fails a basic moral test" (http://www.cathnewsusa.com/2012/08/paul-ryan-bishops-not-in-accord-on-budget/ ), and the "Nuns on the Bus" stated "it does not adequately provide for the care of the poor and the vulnerable" ( http://www.newoxfordreview.org/note.jsp?print=1&did=1012-notes-moment ).

11 -- Step 4A -- You hide the fact that you and the Republican Party exist to serve the oligarchs, plutocrats and corporate masters against the needs and wishes of the 99% (http://archive.truthout.org/bill-moyers-money-fights-hard-and-it-fights-dirty64766?print ; http://blog.buzzflash.com/node/13542 ). This failure to communicate is required to get your poll numbers within the margin of error in order to safely carry out the final step of your Operation Plan (indicated below).

12 -- Step 4B -- You hide the fact that you and the Republican Party are against women's right to "choose", have access to health services, use contraception, define rape, and enjoy a myriad of other women's rights. This failure to communicate is required to get your poll numbers within the margin of error in order to safely carry out the final step of your Operation Plan (indicated below).

10 -- Step 3D: You hide the fact that several Catholic bishops (speaking on behalf of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops) stated that the proposed Ryan budget "fails a basic moral test" (http://www.cathnewsusa.com/2012/08/paul-ryan-bishops-not-in-accord-on-budget/ ), and the "Nuns on the Bus" stated "it does not adequately provide for the care of the poor and the vulnerable" ( http://www.newoxfordreview.org/note.jsp?print=1&did=1012-notes-moment ).

11 -- Step 4A -- You hide the fact that you and the Republican Party exist to serve the oligarchs, plutocrats and corporate masters against the needs and wishes of the 99% (http://archive.truthout.org/bill-moyers-money-fights-hard-and-it-fights-dirty64766?print ; http://blog.buzzflash.com/node/13542 ). This failure to communicate is required to get your poll numbers within the margin of error in order to safely carry out the final step of your Operation Plan (indicated below).
