It amazes me to see how many of the responders to this document are so closed minded when it comes to understanding what Romney means. Those who have no idea of the good this man has done because he is able to, because he earned the resources that enable him to contribute to worthy causes, including adding jobs to the economy.
He is not advocating the dismissal of those who are truly in need; it's a primary tenet of the Church he belongs to.. But there are those among us who spend great effort trying to avoid looking to help themselves.
I am 81 years old; I am far from being "rich" in material things. I have received help from others when in need; I try to return my resources to those in more need than I am. This is the real charity.
