Mitt gave the money to the LDS Church in order to insure he will become a God of his own planet according to Mormon teachings. Obama wants to pay the bills with the top incomes money. Mitt wants to hide his money in off shore accounts to not pay taxes. Once upon a time there was a middle class that built and made America thrive. That class has been dying for 30 years while the rich on Wall St make billions trading money with each other and calling it making money. Instead of the top 400 Richest listed in Fortune magazine being owners of companies that build things the list is now made up mostly of bankers and hedge fund managers that make nothing and hire no one. The biggest exception being number one Bill Gates. Gates closed his American factories and shipped the jobs to China to pay .30 cents an hour slaves.<quoted text>
I totally agree too. I would like to have $57,000 dumped in my checkbook every day too, as someone on here said. But it's not going to happen, so that's the way it is.
Mitt Romney did not take any salary when he was governor. Nor did he keep the legacy left to him by his father. He gave it to charity. In fact their family gives a lot to charity - charity of their choice, which is what he believes in and that's his business, not for anyone to criticize.
He admitted he lost some, and won some. That's the gamble you take in business, but I do think he has a better business head on him than Obama, who relies on his advisors because he didn't get his money without help and input from those who did have it.
Obama wants to take it from those who have it and redistribute---- those who worked hard, saved, invested wisely and made sacrifices and are now in a comfortable position. He feels that these people somehow owe it to those who have less. Easy for him to say because our government will see to his life-long security where he won't ever have to work again if he chooses not to - even after he is no longer president - assuring him that taxpayers will foot the bill for his comfortable lifestyle for the rest of his life.
Obama is not a democrat. He is a socialist plain and simple.
Among other things!
