My Democrat friends say Mitt Romney pays less taxes than the majority of Americans. How is that possible?

He pays more.
Gather your Democrat friends and I'll try to keep this simple-enough for them to grasp:
Hi kids. Ready? Good.
Say Mitt and 9 of you Democrats own equal stake in a corporation.
Now say that company's profit last year was $10,000,000. That means Mitt made $1,000,000 and so did each of you Democrats, but you don't get to take-home nearly that much.
First, before passing-out the money among its owners you guys have to pay $3,500,000 to D.C. This is the so-called "Corporate income tax." Yep. 35% of your earnings disappear from the pool before it gets divided-up. You see, it's not a "tax on corporations," there never has been nor can there ever be any such thing, even if someone calls it that. It's a tax on your income that you made through a corporation.
O.K. Your total is now $6,500,000 to split ten ways. Did you think you were getting $650,000? Silly Democrat. ALL Democrats demand your income that you JUST PAID 35% on has to be taxed again as it's parceled-out to you. You're going to pay another $97,500 in "capital gains" tax (the 15% Mitt was talking about) leaving you with $552,500 before you pay your State and local taxes.
Now do the math with me if you know how to subtract and divide: From your $1,000,000 you actually got $552,500 meaning YOU paid D.C. $447,500 in taxes. Yep. 44.75%
Now you have a number to throw around. I want all of you Democrats to stop with the generalities and just tell everyone you think paying 44.75% in Federal taxes is not nearly enough.

By the way, did I mention most owners of corporations are working class people with retirement accounts and Union pensions? Add that to your rant of pride. Be sure and tell everyone that you think Union laborers should be PAYING D.C. WAY MORE than 44.75% of their RETIREMENT income. Don't back away from it. ALL of you Democrats are constantly saying so, you just keep leaving out the specifics of who pays and how much.
Stop it. Man-up and be honest. I won't tell the DNC so you won't be thrown-out of the party.

Why do left wing Americans still see Europe is the model despite the headlines coming from there?

You mean the violent unrest, shooting sprees, uprisings, the welfare state being completely broke and the people rioting to overthrow their governments?
That WHY American leftists see it as their model!

Is mentioning your ex-girlfriend to a potentially interested girl okay?

Of course. You're trying to drive her off, right?
Whaaaa . . .? You're interested in her? That's a shame since it's never going to happen now.
Seriously, when you can't avoid it without lying or inexplicably changing the subject, you should give contextually appropriate information about an ex. To as much as imply that one exists otherwise is to label yourself irredeemably non-datable.
You see, unless and until you have the new girl's unconditional trust, she will assume the only possible reason you could have an ex is because you're a horrible monster of a man who fiendishly and maliciously did all you could to break your poor set-upon ex's little pure heart.
So, bet the house this "potentially interested girl" you mentioned sees you that way now. Good luck with that.

Will Obama have to tear his opponent down, rather than run on his own record this coming election? When taking into consideration that most people seem to believe that this country is headed in the wrong direction according to most polls? What are your thoughts?

Of course. In fact, that's his published plan. It's not hard to get on his campaign mailing-list to learn such things.
According to the Obama campaign, their plan is to ridicule any mention of any fact about his record and to focus on ways his opponent is like a Democrat.
Really. The Democrat message for 2012 amounts to a two-pronged strategy:
> We have no record and have never done anything. Anyone who says we ever did anything is a lying retard.
> Don't vote for our opponents. They're too much like us.

Is instant coffee better than real coffee?

Most instant coffee is real coffee. Coffee is brewed then has the moisture extracted. You reconstitute it.
That being said, the target market for instant is people who aren't big coffee aficionados in the first place so it makes no economic sense to use the best coffee to produce instant.
In other words, most regular instant users will likely be unimpressed by the best of coffees while coffee fans will shun instant except as a last resort.
