From Moveon.org, Check out these brave people who’ve responded to Mitt Romney’s comment that 47% of Americans think of themselves as “victims” and will never “take responsibility for their lives.”

This first video was submitted by Donna & Bruce StClair from Forest, Virginia.

Submitted by DeEtte Beghtol Waleed from Multnomah, Oregon. She says “Mr. Romney… I take responsibility for my children, my grandchildren, and my great-children, and have done that for more than sixty years.”

“I was born without arms… but these are circumstances beyond my control.”

“I pay my taxes, I work to give my students a good-quality education…”

“Mitt, the wife and I live a very modest lifestyle in our little California bungalow.”

“Growing up, my family was part of Mitt Romney’s 47%.”

“This is my message to Mitt Romney.”

“Now I’m a full-time tenured professor… I’m not a victim, I’m a voter, and I’m grateful.”
