If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
Alright so this little tidbit came from a speech this socialist weasel gave in Roanoke VA recently. Once again our President shows how little he understands about economics and really human nature in general. I really shouldn't have to explain the flaw in this sort of socialist bullshit but I'm sure to some of you I need to. So lets examine this. In one sense I suppose the President is right. I didn't build this country and neither did you. We were all born into a pre-existing society. Not only that but a society that despite it's flaws was the most prosperous and free society on Earth. We did nothing to make that happen we simply inherited it. So in one sense we do all stand on the shoulders of those that came before us. And we are all inter connected. If I open a business it is only successful because people have the money to buy what I am selling. And I am only successful if there are already businesses out there to provide me with the goods and services I need to run my business and so on and so on. But does that mean if I start a business I owe society for my success? Well yes, but my success in and of itself pays society back. By being successful, starting a business, or even just simply being a functioning member of society I help perpetuate said society. A small business owner is already 'giving back' by nature of the people he hires, the demand he creates within the economy etc etc.
Obama, and liberals in general seem to believe that if you become successful it is because you have taken from others. I think Obama believes that because for Obama and those like him it is true. Obama truly owes his success to others. He has never had a private sector job in his life. All public sector shit. And the public sector does not produce anything. Everything it has is taken from the taxpayers. So Obama it is true you sure as fuck didn't get where you are on your own. Doesn't mean the rest of us are as parasitic as you.
If you own a business, or if you even just work for a living, you have no business voting for this socialist Chicago gangster.
