Letter: Look at what rich are doing right, not wrong
In his column Aug. 22, Tom Cantlon gives us a near perfect example of "the politics of envy."
Tom would have us believe because Mitt Romney has been successful and is rich, that somehow makes him a bad guy. Tom wants the government to take from the rich and spread it around. In all the times that system of government has been tried, it has never worked. Everyone becomes poorer, and freedom is lost.
The truth is Mitt Romney and others like him help provide the jobs we need. Mr. Romney gives almost half his income to charity, pays millions of dollars in taxes every year, and by all accounts lives an honorable life.
I like rich people - someday hope to be one. And I wish the same for Tom.
