"Republicans oppose taxes generally."

Not true. You have to have tax revenue.

"Avoiding taxes is not hypocritical, it is illegal.....and dumb."

Not sure what you are talking about here. Avoiding unnecessary taxes means doing so legally, to me. It is just being smart with your money. Doing something illegal is a crime - what you are talking about is criminal, not simply 'avoiding taxes'. With good planning, you can pay less than you'd have to, by simply following the advice of a tax professional. There is nothing wrong with that.

Mitt does it all the time.
