Oh great Obama, I bow down to thee

OBAMA: “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.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks in Roanoke, VA, 7/13/12)

Thanks for the support
Oh great Obama, I bow down to thee. I kiss the ground you tread on. Thank you for allowing me to make money. How could any of us survive without the government creating success for us? Thank you for allowing me to vote. I want to thank you for giving me the privilege of sending in my yearly donation.........

Wait one second. I need to check something before I continue............. Hey I live in America. Oh guess what. I get to vote. So let me get this straight. My hard work and risk taking had nothing to do with how successful I am or can become?????.......... The last time I checked, which is just a few minutes ago. The only jobs that depend on the hard work of others to be successful is politicians jobs. So Mr. President you should know that your success in November will be a result of .... "you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen." We the people decide whether or not you continue to be successful or in your case try to be successful.

If I recall, I have been donating money to the government every year on April 15th. So that means that if the government built the internet with government money (my money), it is technically built by ....... Me and my hard work. So by making money on the internet I am utilizing my portion of the hard work.

I think you might be too wrapped up in the Washington DC thing. You need to get out more. Talk to people that actually have to work to make a living. You might find that you are a bit out of touch. Besides how do you justify all of the hard working small business owners that have failed? How do you justify that?

Remember people, Obama is not going to pay your bills for you. Money does not grow on trees. His ideology does not work. We have witnessed it in Greece. Lets get out in November and show Obama that we are tired.

I leave you with one final thought, the US Chamber of Commerce puts out a Small Business report every quarter. They survey small business owners, compile the information and publish a report. Here is the report. It makes for interesting reading. I did find one section that was very interesting. Take a look at the graph below:
I think this says it all.
