During the first debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Trump did something that he has done many times during that night and throughout his campaign: he put his foot in his mouth. When Clinton pointed out that the last time Trump's tax returns were made public, he was paying no taxes, Trump responded 'That makes me smart.' This was of course a dumbass thing to say. It implied that people who don't have gaping tax loopholes and top-notch lawyers available to them are not as smart as everyday people.Not to mention, there is abundant evidence that Trump is anything but 'smart'. The left has seized on Trump's remark as an opportunity to slam him. I will join them in calling for tax loopholes to be closed and for Trump to release his tax returns. I will not, however, give him flak for not paying taxes. There is no evidence that Trump has done anything illegal by avoiding taxes. There are tax loopholes Trump can take advantage of that ordinary taxpayers can't. This is no doubt an injustice, but ask yourself this:would you pay taxes if you weren't legally required to? I wouldn't. I would like to think that if I had a fortune like the Donald's, I would spend more of it on liberal causes and legitimate charities than personal aggrandizement, but I would not voluntarily hand over my money to the state.
