The media, the Left, and the evil Obama are either ignorant or flat out stupid.
These people have now idea how wealth is created. These fools are pushing forward the idea that government is the end all be all.
Government is the creator of all wealth and freedom.
Without government “We the People” wouldn’t know how to live or fend for ourselves.
Yet one must realize that for government to build bridges, run schools, and all the services that government provides has to have bucks.
Where does the money come from?
I suggest you read a basic ECON 101 book.
Wealth is created in the private sector.
Individuals have a dream.
The person has an idea.
They make a product.
The product is produced.
People buy the product.
This is how wealth is created.
Sure a government can print money.
Who in government can make the products so one can buy them?
Can the government create and make the goods and services that are essential for us to survive?
Does government design or built cars, make and design oil wells and then go out and look for the oil?
Can government grow food?
Did government invent the cotton gin?
Did government create the vaccine for smallpox?
Did government figure out how to grow tobacco? Corn? Wheat? Or any other products we use on a daily basis.
This is created in the private sector.
Government can build bridges and roads without the private sector.
Rome did it.
The Romans conquered nations and used these folks to build roads and bridges.
They were the slaves of Rome.
This is how the evil Obama and the left look at us “We The People”.
We are the servants.
Obama is the King.
We are the subjects.
We the people do not have any rights except those given to us by and through the government.
This very logic flies in the face on the principles that this country was founded upon.
Here are some of the words written by our founding fathers.
A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.
James Madison, Federalist No. 51, February 8, 1788
A just security to property is not afforded by that government, under which unequal taxes oppress one species of property and reward another species.
James Madison, Essay on Property, March 29, 1792
A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
James Madison, letter to W.T. Barry, August 4, 1822
An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among the several bodies of magistracy as that no one could transcend their legal limits without being effectually checked and restrained by the others.
James Madison, Federalist No. 58, 1788
As the cool and deliberate sense of the community ought in all governments, and actually will in all free governments ultimately prevail over the views of its rulers; so there are particular moments in public affairs, when the people stimulated by some irregular passion, or some illicit advantage, or misled by the artful misrepresentations of interested men, may call for measures which they themselves will afterwards be the most ready to lament and condemn. In these critical moments, how salutary will be the interference of some temperate and respectable body of citizens, in order to check the misguided career, and to suspend the blow mediated by the people against themselves, until reason, justice and truth, can regain their authority over the public mind?
James Madison (likely), Federalist No. 63, 1788
A nation under a well regulated government, should permit none to remain uninstructed. It is monarchical and aristocratical government only that requires ignorance for its support.
Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1792
As parents, we can have no joy, knowing that this government is not sufficiently lasting to ensure any thing which we may bequeath to posterity: And by a plain method of argument, as we are running the next generation into debt, we ought to do the work of it, otherwise we use them meanly and pitifully. In order to discover the line of our duty rightly, we should take our children in our hand, and fix our station a few years farther into life; that eminence will present a prospect, which a few present fears and prejudices conceal from our sight.
Thomas Paine, Common Sense, 1776
Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.
Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791
