    All minority candidates should obviously show their birth certificates. I can’t believe you even had to ask.

    Or if they got any large gifts or loans from foreign heads of state.

    Or if they would personally benefit from certain policies.

    Rafael "Ted" Cruz didn't make it past the primary - stop beating him up over it.

    It could be harmless, and he'd just be embarrassed when it is shown he isn't worth nearly as much as he'd claimed.

    Or it could be more serious than impeachment. Asset forfeiture is a thing.

    People don’t want to view the tax returns to see if Trump cheated on his taxes. Few think he did. I believe he is inside (though maybe leaning up against) the letter of the law. The reason people want them opened is to see if he has any conflicts of interests. See if he has the ability to profit mightily off of a action he can take as president. That’s what wants to be seen. The cheating on taxes has nothing to do with it.

    LOL ! That's why I wouldn't want to do it if I were to run for President. I wouldn't want to have to admit that my financial affairs are so paltry.

    That violating my off the job privacy. Also I don't like the idea of people being able to snoop into my taxes or personal business. Also we don't need Trumps taxes to see that he's shady. Pretty soon people will demand everyone's Social Security Number to be public for everyone to see.

    It seems to me that once again, liberals are willing to give up their Constitutional rights if it serves their political purposes. It's very troubling to me.

    Tax returns, medical info. shopping habits, locations, etc. all made public. Where does it all end? Are we no longer allowed a life with a reasonable expectation of privacy? I hope you're smart enough to know where this could lead. It's not conspiracy, it's reality.

    Rush Limbaugh is under annual audit. He's basically a target. This is why he has to pay millions every year in retainers for legal and other fees. Is this the type of road we want to go down for our elected officials? If this were an actual requirement, it would definitely eliminate average people from running or anyone that valued their privacy.

    Would that include removing the privacy protections on your tax returns?

    Do non minority candidates have to show their birth certificates?

    Rush isn’t holding federal office at a high level and is handsomely rewarded for his entertainment endeavors.

    So the requirements for running differ by what race you are?
