ROMNEY WORKED HARD THE AMERICAN WAY? Romney earned his living by working hard selling of the stock, little by little, he inherited from this father. Blacks did not inherit anything from the hard work they slave ancestors did for 200 years of free hard labor. They started from the ground up with nothing. Not even 40 acres and the mule this country promised them. Romney started from the top. He never worked a day in his life either so how can he run a country that is at the bottom. Obama started from the bottom when he took office. Bush had cleaned out the Governments bank account. How much of what his dad and granddaddy made their millions was inherited from the hard work of slave labor? Starting at the top is not the American way . This country was built on immigrant labor and some of them were Blacks stolen from their homes in Africa, put on slave ships, brought here and forced into 200 years of free labor. No cheap labor. Blacks on welfare and food stamps are just inheriting from the 200 years their ancestor provided free labor. Native American nor Blacks could never be compensated for what was stolen from them by this country. How much taxes has Ann paid for her hard labor? Ann/Mitt its hard to be something you are not. ______________________________________________________ "Slavery was abolished, but something just as evil took its place.
