    Why should I care? None of my business.

    I should put a "none of your business" option.

    It's page 2, the answer is 15.

    What is it you think the very wealthy do with their money? know what they do? They spend it. Their consumer habits drive our economy far more than yours ever will...probably more than your whole community's spending habits ever will.

    If you're unhappy by the distance between your own self and Romney? Get a better education. Take some risks. Get a second job. Or, more likely? Get a first one.
    Good idea I'll go steal some money for my self. This is the real "redistribution of wealth".

    I'll reveal the answer on page 2.

    As many as Harry Ried,Nancy Pelosi or some other rich democrat owns?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    TBH I don't like Nancy Pelosi much either, she tends to yap and complain too much and as speaker thought she was more powerful and liked than she really was. As for Ried he's not that rich, and of all the politicians lets say there's a lot of people I like less than him.

    I don't consider his Mormon church tithing obligation charity, take that away and he's pretty much a skinflint for someone with his fortune.
    Romney hasn't spent over $250 million of his income so how can you say he spends it ? He spends a small % and socks the rest away. Romney along with the rest of the top 5% have socked away over $40 Trillion and counting. It is unsustainable. We are a consumer economy and we need people to spend more than 10% of their income or it all comes tumbling down.

    I'll arbitrarily take away the vast majority of his charitable donations to prove he's cheap.

    i don't care how many homes he has, how rich he is, or if he used a bunch of loopholes to avoid taxes.

    i do care that his main platform is more trickle down nonsense and hawkish foreign policy. no thanks.

    But you have nothing against him. Yeah, right.
    You must think alot of the peeps here are stupid. As a general rule, you would be mistaken.

    Ok firing massive number of people WHILE collecting huge bonuses for doing it. THAT I do hold against him. He gets paid for the short term cuts to cost but doesn't get punished for the long term effects of driving companies to the ground?

    Ya if he really does donate 10% to his churches that's all he donates, he doesn't donate anything to the public.

    He also didn't build his business unlike many small business owners and true entrepreneurs like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg. Who by the way DO donate their money.

    ...But that doesn't matter. This isn't a poll to show Romney is evil.

    The reason I vote for Obama this election is because he's implementing better policies for the nation and it shows in the economy.

    Don't really care, but having 15 places to crash at must be awesome.
