649.) President Obama has finally exposed his true self to the American people. He has finally revealed the his true beliefs about we simple minded Americans, and the country that we love.
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.
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. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
This is how progressive logic works. You didn’t earn anything, you haven’t accomplished anything, so therefore you deserve nothing. You didn’t earn your education, the teacher did. It was the teacher who did your homework, the teacher who spent many a countless night burning the midnight oil forgetting that luxary of sleep, it was the teacher who took the tests and completed the projects. The teacher earned the grades that allowed you to graduate, not you.
What progressives don’t understand is the concept of drive, ambition, and will. Sure there may be other people out there who are just as smart as you, they might even work just as hard or maybe even harder than you, but if they lack the will, the vision, they will not succeed. That is why progressives are okay with the concept of union’s deciding how a company should be run as opposed to the people who own it. They do not respect the fact that it is the owner of the company who is reponsible for its exisitance. Sure some people may have helped along the way, but who was it who took the risk, took that first step to bringing that business into being? It sure as heck wasn’t the government, or the union bosses.
I love how President Obama likes to say that if you own a business someone else made that happen, then has the audacity to say that the government has created something. The government didn’t create the internet, invidudual Americans did, funded by money generated by private business. The government doesn’t pave roads, private contractors do. Government doesn’t create anything, like fire it can only destroy.
This statement by President Obama is justification for his belife that the government can just take from you what it wants, and give it to someone else, sense after all you have done nothing to earn it, and it all belongs to other people any ways. Sure you took the risk, you work your ass off, but other people might need what is yours and deserve it more than you do.
The word communist comes to mind when I hear someone speak like President Obama (cue the progressive attack machine).
