Mr. Romney,

You seem to have forgotten your civics and history lessons from school, but that's ok, I'll remind you in very simple terms. Redistribution is "government of the people, by the people and for the people."

See, it is easy to remember, Abraham Lincoln said it in the Gettysburg Address. And that's what our taxes do for all of us. It doesn't matter who pays how much taxes, only that we pay a fair share appropriate for the circumstance of our live defined by the tax laws of this country.

That means everyone gains by and for the common good. You remember common good? That's also what redistribution is, government for the common good, all of us, like roads, schools, teachers, firefighters, police, national guard, etc.

You should know as a former governor working for all the people of Massachusetts, not what you learned and exercised as the head of Bain Capital, carving up companies for profit and firing employees to ship jobs overseas.

You see Mr. Romney, it's easy if you think of we instead of me. But then I don't expect you to remember it, let alone believe in it. You haven't yet.
