Obama: Success is Only Achievable through Government

By Bobby Eberle

What an incredible few days it has been. Barack Obama has been trying everything in his campaign... pulling ideas from the same, tired leftwing playbook used in the past. He has called for higher taxes. He is using class warfare. He is using character attacks rather than hitting the issues. But with just one speech, Obama showed that he far surpasses left wing presidents of the past. By implying that no American can be successful without government "help," Obama showed that it's impossible for him to lead, because he has no clue what the American Dream is.

It will be interesting to see in the upcoming weeks what the media have to say about Obama and his actions. Yes, they are all firmly in his corner. Yes, they buy into the same "big government" mentality as he does. But Obama is so far out of touch, one would think even some of the "normal" leftists would catch on.

In a speech on Friday, Obama -- whether he intended to or not -- blasted small business owners and entrepreneurs by saying that if you were successful, "somebody else made that happen." Incredible. Incredibly stupid. Incredibly out of touch.

Here's a sample:

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.

The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. There are some things, just like fighting fires, we don't do on our own. I mean, imagine if everybody had their own fire service. That would be a hard way to organize fighting fires.

Here's the video:

His statements are flat out unbelievable! I am so offended, I don't even know where to start. And as a side note, I AM a person who built a business, and I did it without one loan, one grant, or one ounce of help from Big Government.

Obama knocks smart people. Obama belittles hardworking people. He is saying that yes, you can be smart, you can work hard, but you can't be successful without government. Unreal!

Oh... and of course, he throws in the "want to give back line." Like taxes are some form of charity. Does he think everyone is stupid? Actual charities are funded by wealthy people, and thank goodness for that. But taxes are NOT charity. If wealthy people want to "give something back," they can donate to a charity. They can help an organization that means something to them. We are talking about TAXES, and the so-called wealthy already pay for most of government.

The Obama speech has certainly hit a nerve.

Andrea Soul, a spokeswoman for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, told Fox News, that Obama's comments "reflect just how unqualified he is to lead us to a real economic recovery."

She added, "They are also insulting to the hardworking entrepreneurs, small-business owners, and job creators who are the backbone of our economy."

Brit Hume, in a commentary role, summed up Obama brilliantly by saying, "It is fair to say that we know more tonight than we ever have about the President's view of business and the economy. His assertion over the weekend that 'if you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen' explains nearly everything. He wasn't talking about God. He was talking about government."

Just watch his comments. They are right on!

According to Obama, business owners are simply the beneficiaries of government. Government gave to them, so they should happily give back. Hello! WE... the people of America... give to government! Actually, government takes, and it takes PLENTY from us!

Please let your friends know about Obama's comments. To me, this is the MOST revealing speech Obama has ever made. From day one, he has used race as a tool to divide. From day one, he has made the "successful" person the target. But in this speech, Obama went beyond anything he has said in the past. According to him... if you are not reliant on government, you are the bad guy.

    Well, friends there it is…Obama has finally exposed himself as the socialist and big government believer we all knew he was. It is incredible how little he knows about how our private industry works and the role of entrepreneurs and creative Americans in the process. He actually thinks that Henry Ford could not have deigned and built his automobiles without the government. Or that the Wright brothers could not have invented their first airplane without government. He totally is missing what our Founders meant for the role of government and has bought into the socialist dominate role which undermines individual freedom and the whole capitalist based system that has made America the most powerful,country in the history of the world. The cat is out of the bag and this should be his undoing in the upcoming election.

      You are missing it all. obummer does not care about business or entrepreneurs or inventors or their role in capitolism. HE IS A C-O-M-M-U-N-I-S-T! Yes the cat is out of the bag it has been for 4 years and if Romney does not jump on this and hit him over the head with it. He may as well give up. Romney must get much more aggressive with obummer! Time is running out and he better get on the stick! I cannot wait until the debates start. That will destroy obummer (if he does not have his teleprompter next to him) or make him stronger if Romney does not take the bull by the horns! We will be finished if he is re-elected! God only knows what he has plans to do if re-elected.

      Obama stated “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.”
      Yes Mr. President, that one statement is true. The unbelievable American system is called “free enterprise” which was aided by a “limited government”. Again Obama is putting the cart before the horse, he firmly believes in a government with few limitations which actually impedes free enterprise.
      We were also taught that an upstanding citizen should give back to their community. It was taught in a simple statement, “charity begins at home”. Government is not a charity, it is an institution that forcibly takes ones money and after giving as much as possible to their friends then sparingly doles out benefits to many that believe it is their right to receive them.

      “I cannot wait until the debates start.”

      nickster, the “debates” are nothing more than a theatrical production. They are moderated by some lefty from one of the media, the questions are approved by the candidates beforehand, the answers are all scripted, and Obama is not going to allow ANY discussion about his record or any issue that is important to the people. He will do nothing but attack Romney and keep repeating his talking points such as “fair share”, “forward”, “millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jet owners”, and all the other class warfare he has been using. If you want to watch the debates for entertainment and enjoyment, don’t expect to learn anything.

      I think the questions asked in the debate should be:
      1. “President Obama, can you explain to the American people why you still refuse to allow access to any of your background records while you continue to insist that Mr. Romney release all of his records”?
      2. “President Obama, can you explain why you continue to insist on raising taxes on the higher income people and refer to them as refusing to pay their “fair share” when it is common knowledge that the top 10% of wage earners pay over 40% of all federal income taxes”?
      3. “President Obama, can you explain why you consistently use class warfare, race warfare, economic warfare, and other divisive tactics to keep the public separated into special interest groups”?
      4. “President Obama, can you explain to the American people why you have violated federal laws you disagree with, circumvented Congress and ruled by executive order, and always favored blacks and unions whenever making a decision”?

      Success is only achievable through government if your perception of America is that of a socialist organized chicken coup and Americans as chickens who can only be hand fed and fattened up by Socialist farm collectives of consumers who raise them to be consumed, then cooked in the Federal frying pan of tax slayers and political correct meat processing. Success is then only achievable by government vultures who provide air cover for the political chicken hawks who rule their Democrat roost who not only soil their own nests but defecate in the very place they eat.

      True Americans are built of sterner stuff and were designed to be Eagles who dwell and gather among the clouds and mountain peaks where their perspective in life is a lot clearer than the Coo Coo birds that dwell in the forest trees and cannot see the forest through the trees, or the ground pecking chickens that peck at the worms, peck at the handouts and then peck at each other and can only grow up to be non-productive tele-prompted crowing roosters.

      We of the last true American Eagles who hunt for our own food at the top of the food chain now find it lonely at the top because of the Democrat Demonic DDT that has contaminated our Constitutional environment and poisoned our food and life giving freedoms to the point of extinction.

      Mathew 24:28 – “Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will be gathered together” Portents to come of the Democrat Convention. Obama now shows us that the feathers are just beginning to Fly.

      Just watch in November when they come to the voting booth once again with more pro-offered handouts for the chickens and find themselves confronted with Eagles who turn the tables and consume THEM for a Change and who resume their rightful and proper place at the top of the food chain. Now it is the American EAGLES that are gathering and it will be the vultures who duck for cover.

      With O’s logic, then the government is the factor more fail than succeed in business.

      In other words if one succeeds because of the government then one fails because of the government.

      They aren’t talking or acting like they are representing the people but espousing a Communist Party Line. Hope and Change, if O’ is elected, will change to Dope and Flexibility.

      Response to comment by bna42:
      You don’t have to ask him for release of any of those documents. Most were submitted to the South Carolina Supreme Court when Obama’s eligibility to be on the South Carolina Ballot was being considered and the validity of the submitted information was sworn to by those who submitted the documents. For example, on Obama’s Occidental College application for a Fulbright Scholarship released under the Freedom of Information Act, he lists his nationality as Indonesian, and I presume his other transcripts are similar. He went to the most expensive private high school in the nation and always had extra money from somewhere. When he decided to run for president, he suddenly had 100s of millions in his campaign chest from crypto-contributors who used the Internet, and he opted out of releasing the names of his contributors.

      However all of the above is history, judge Obama by his record. When he took office our national debt was 9 ½ trillion and at the end of his first four years it will be 16.1 trillion or in plain terms a 40% increase in our national debt in just 4 years. If he is re-elected, we can expect a similar increase in spending and a major devaluation of the US dollar to perhaps half its present value. If you’re a welfare mom, you can expect states to again issue warrants that will be discounted to match the state’s income from taxation. Thus your $23,000.00 in current welfare checks will be half that amount and your only joy will be that the wealthy are being hit harder and either struggling or have gone overseas.

      What a total blowhard this man is. He has no more idea of how to build a business and what it takes than Pinocchio does. My dad came to this country in 1912 from England. He had been a bakery apprentice and when he got here, he took any bakery job he could find. Then in 1923 he started his own bakery from scratch with money that he had saved for 11 years. That bakery was still in operation until 1992, when my brother retired who had taken it over when Dad retired. That bakery ran for nearly 70 years, without one loan, not one penny from the government, nothing.

      It took hard work and perseverance. Dad went through the great depression in ’29 and managed to keep that bakery going.

      So for Obama to stand there and make these comments is so insulting it is unfathomable and unbelievable.

      I believe that the stupid fool has put his stupid foot in his stupid mouth again and even more solidly, so that all Americans can grasp the absolute idiocy of his thinking and his incompetence. Or perhaps it should be called treachery. It would appear that the destruction of America were his and his allies intentions from the very first. This presidential election should be the biggest landslide in our history. We must get rid of these vermin if we hope to survive in freedom as our Founders intended.

      What people need to focus on and what the Romney administration is allowing the people to forget, is the while Mitt Romney was productively and successfully running Bain Capital, Running the Olympics and running for office, the only thing Barak Obama was doing and succeeded in doing was the very thing he has been doing the last 4 years, which is unsuccessfully , non-productively running his mouth. That is all he does. He is a professional politician and that is what they do best.

      He who lives by success dies in success, he who lives by the mouth dies by the mouth and Obama just withers in each of his mindless unsubstantiated attackes on Mitt.

    Perhaps the current president is unaware that all Americans who pay taxes (the 50% 0f us left, that is) already pay for roads and bridges through taxation at many levels. Has Mr. Buffett offered up any billions to reduce the deficit yet? His wealthy friends talk the talk, but do they walk the walk? I hope they feel free to donate to the government at any time. Anyway, it should be up to the individual to decide how to best distribute their hard earned funds. This is insulting to those of us who work hard for every dollar, only to have so much of it taken away by wasteful government programs. This president was poorly vetted by the American people who voted for him. Have nots who rely on government/taxpayers assistance: beware. If you vote for this individual again, personal wealth will be stripped away, and we will have nothing left to offer anybody.

      Obama is fully aware of that ‘girl.
      His entire purpose was to belittle ‘producers’ in order to make his sit-down-and-ask-for-a-handout base feel like they are … when they know they aren’t.

      The people of this country who Do instead of TAKE know exact;y how our American system has aided their success, and how it has been other DOers paying taxes that created that environment … while the TAKERS don’t pay in, and simply leech off of the ‘producers’.

      Obama was just trying to make them feel less guilty about being absolute losers … like him.

    From the stimulus to Obozocare to card check, Obozo has proven again and again that he thinks people should turn our entire lives over to government control. And he wonders why he can’t get the Republicans to support his asinine programs.

They filed a lawsuit against the company and my cousin….wanted him to pony up $35,000. REALLY?????

      Obama go back to Illinois? I wouldn.t wish that on my worst enemy. I also have 3 kids and 5 grandkids still there. Here are the results of their former Community Organizing in Chicago, now run by former cronie Rahm Emannual.

      3rd largest American city
      2.7 million
      240 sq miles whites 42%, blacks 36% (Twice the Average of Black Americans)

      Homicides Jan-Jun 2012

      147 Los Angeles
      189 New York (three items the population of Chicago)
      272 Chicago up Jan-June up 36%

      Estimated 5000 black youths killed during the past 7 years.

      Chicago was better off when Al Capone ran the city, and you want them to be running our nation for another 4 years? If this is the type of success you get when life is run by government we need to get rid of government.

It is too expensive the taxes are murder and not a very safe place anymore with the thug mobs roaming through the downtown areas. You hear it in the news everyday of people being beaten and robbed.

    “By implying that no American can be successful without government ‘help,’ ” he is continuing a government tradition that has been practiced for many years. If you do not go along with government policies, government will declare and treat you as “disabled” and compensate you for that disability. The fact is that American businesses have not always been financial capable and safe to the extent that they could keep people from having to apply for unemployment, workmen’s compensation or public assistance. It is good to know that, when American businesses can not “help,” good old Uncle Sam is there with everything needed to keep you alive and well. Undoubtedly, there is abuse of the system, but that there is an outright conspiracy (communist/socialist) to keep people from achieving in the private sector is really a stretch of the truth. Where the private sector succeeds, the government can not, nor does it have to.

    Yes, the general, taxpaying public – you and I – HELPED provide the infrastructure that allow new businesses to grow. But, did we, all, spend 16 hour days, 7 days a week, forgoing family, risking, perhaps, our life savings and more, spend weeks learning all the applicable regulations and how to succeed within them and so VERY much more? NO! the entrepreneur, HIMSELF, did all that usually WITHOUT OUTSIDE HELP! This fellow who all but sold his soul to build a business and EMPLOY PEOPLE would have gotten just about as much help (if not more) from his fellow taxpayers if he did nothing more than flip burgers at McDonald’s or even sit on his a$$ on welfare!
    You say that a businessman owes his success, primarily, to the rest of the immediate world and that that world ought to be unabashedly proud of making him the success he became. I guess we ought to be equally proud of our magnanimous support of meth labs, crack houses, pot growers, illicit brothels, terrorist cells like those involved in the 9/11 attacks and criminals of EVERY hue who, likewise, would be unable to function if it were not for our grandiose largesse.
    AND, it’s said that only ONE in FIVE new businesses will see their second year despite the fact that they have the loving graces of city, state and Country making it possible for them to open the business – ought we be equally “proud” of those failures as well?
    This infrastructure is created and preserved for EVERYONE, from the bum sleeping in the alleyway to the multibillion dollar – multinational corporation that we may have a functioning, progressing society! To denigrate the fellow who makes an effort to do something USEFUL through his above average efforts with his share of this system is repugnant to say the least!
    A corollary to “You get what you pay for” would be “You do NOT get what you belittle or condemn”. Why should a fellow even try to make his little corner of the world a bit better if, in addition to the hurdles named above, he knows he knows his, often Herculean, efforts will be taken for naught?

I want to know where all these jobs are that he supposedly created. I have a college degree and am unemployed and would like to get off government assistance but I can’t get another job I’m still trying after 6 mos still no luck while he talks about giving amnesty to the people coming across the border being paid under the table to work jobs that americans need now more than ever. Meanwhile they are given a place to live, food, medical, and alot more. They drive better cars than I do…..oh wait I dont have a car cause I lost my job and my apartment and everything else with it and forced to live with my ex-husband or be homeless.

      Obozo is likely to hold the title of “Worst President Ever” for the rest of recorded history…at least he will if American voters are willing to learn from this big mistake.

    The government may be forced to admit that the bulk of their taxes do not come from individuals, as the media portrays. If it is individuals, then there has had to have been a lot of wealthy ones in the past, for the government to have taxed, in order to provide the means, as Obama preaches, for individuals to become successful or wealthy ??? Which came first, the chicken or the egg?

    Obama is part blaque, everyone in that community gets special government help, so that is all he sees and is too Stupid to know everyone else gets their success without the Special Classes of people that the GuberMint assists in everything they do. Everyone that is except the only Class that gets hindered in everything they attempt, by the Gubermint, White Males are blocked at every road and intersection. So Commie President, stick it where the Sun doesn’t shine.

    I feel like a mosquito looking at an elephant…I don’t know where to start. I guess we should start at why are we surprised by any of this? It is clear from every lying word that drips from this adder’s tongue that he hates American exceptionalism, hates everything that America stands for, and is driven to turn America into that socialist utopia that his mentor Saul Alinsky promised him we could become. Obama mistrusts anyone who doesn’t believe as he does that the government is god and that only the government can handle the problems of today’s society. He believes in the Marxist-Leninist value system that says that anyone who has more wealth than the average must have stolen it from the “exploited” masses. I find it fascinating that there are so many wealthy socialists in the country, Obama included. I guess the fact that you got wealthy through capitalism doesn’t count if you believe in socialism; only those who BELIEVE in the free market system are actually exploiting the masses. It is blatant hypocrisy in all its unveiled glory. When you examine Obama’s pedigree, his comments make perfect sense. No business owner did it on his own; there were all those “poor, exploited workers” he had to step on to get ahead. He didn’t do it on his own; the government had to step in with ridiculous taxes and regulations to make sure these “poor, exploited workers” got their pound of flesh. After all, these rube business owners surely don’t know what to do with their wealth. They need the government to step in to tell them how to spend it wisely. I submit that the government has been an impediment to business growth in this country far more often than a help, and just looking at the average start-up costs for businesses these days bears that out. Most of the cost of starting a business these days isn’t tied up in inventory, employees, distribution or location. The start-up costs are very heavily influenced by all the regulatory permits and taxes that have to be paid to get permission to open a business.
    Unfortunately Obama speaks the absolute truth as he sees it, because his words are based on his completely convoluted belief structure. He is as anti-business and anti-capitalism as any president ever, and he needs to be voted out as soon as that can happen. Make sure to tell anyone you know that owns a business to send Obama a personal thank you card. I’m sure they’ll be happy to know that if it weren’t for his all-knowing eminence, their business would have likely failed years ago as he’s convinced they’re too stupid to have made it without Uncle Sam’s help.

    When I hear the President talking off of the teleprompter he sounds very naive and uneducated as to the American free enterprise system and our basic traditional American way of life. It is as though he is from another country or something. He just doesn’t get it.

    I just cannot believe that he was elected our President. How could this happen? How could someone as inexperienced and with such a radical background end up the President of our country?

    I have made comments in the past that he is a modern version of the Manchurian Candidate which is someone trained to basically infiltrate our government and undermine it to the extent of “taking it down” in a form of bloodless coupe supported by radicals that hate America.

    Barack Obama can be charming, he is handsome, is an extremely articulate speaker, and is supported primarily by the socialist/communist activists in the country. His view of the world revolves around a huge central government that basically controls the public and dictates policies and behavior through goverment regulations and laws.

    He is very close to nailing it for these radicals. If Obamacare is not repealed and replaced with something totally different and not government centric, that will end up being the final nail in the coffin of our free enterprise and capitalist country. Once the government controls our healthcare system, they will have us where they want us and can force us one way or the other by extortion and other techniques and most of us will have no viable options.

    Our individual freedoms are methodically being eroded through government regulations all aimed at creating the socialist “collective” of massive income and wealth redistribution that brings down the higher standards of living and attempts to bring up the lowest standards of living with the goal being some middle ground that removes any incentives for the “makers” in this country to continue to work hard just so the government can confiscate and give to others.

    This is the Obama dream as he attempts to “transform” this country into some form of socialism that “takes down” those capitalist pigs and rich corporate dogs that are getting rich off of the backs of the “people”. Where have I heard that before…oh, I know communist countries like the Soviet Union.

    The only way Obama’s statement makes sense is if he’s talking about corrupt politicians…………and he certainly knows a LOT about that subject.

    The rest of us use brains, ingenuity and a huge heap of imagination to make a success of what we attempt. Sometimes depending on the project it may also take a lot of “sweat”!

    Government, if involved in any way with a person’s private sector business, will muck it up until it is unrecognizable.

    Dr Eberle, How dare you think that you are smarter than BO? How dare you claim that you are successful without any help from Govt??

    The President is the smart one. Afterall his conclusion he is the one who came to the conclusion, that if you are successful, it is because someone else made it happen!

    It is BO who should be offended because WE the People are so stupid that we dont get his idealogy of Big Govt and Govt is the solution to all our woes! Hey,maybe if we enrol a few chimpazees in school, teachers can teach them to do math and science and help make them successful! Wouldnt that be brilliant??

    This man is despicable and he owes every successful person/business and apology but I dont think we should be holding our breathe for it.

    If Govt is the solution, how come the number of people on food stamps have gone up and poverty rate have gone up?

    This is an excerpt from moneycnn “The number of people in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has soared to an average 44.7 million in fiscal 2011, up 33% from fiscal 2009. Obama’s stimulus act made it easier for childless, jobless adults to qualify for the program and increased the monthly benefit by about 15% through 2013″.

    Govt interference with doling out food stamps, unemployment benefits and welfare work waivers does nothing but encourages laziness

    When Obama explained his dream for America, didn’t Russia’s Putin tell him “we’ve tried Communism and it doesn’t work”? However, no one sat on their fanny and watched TV in Soviet Russia; they had work camps for the idle and gulags for those who dissented. One sixth of our population is on government support and many of these could work, but choose not to. When this is combined with almost 50% who pay no taxes and expect others to support their activities, this is not Marxism, Communism, Socialism or any other type of economic system. It is living on borrowed time.

    Well, once again our faithful leader is trying to obscure the truth. For all of you that have endured sleepless hours as you grew the bussiness you have. I say thank you. The anointed one says that the government created your bussiness. After all they built the bridges, and the roads that lead to your place of bussiness. The anointed one would claim that you did not have any part of of paying the taxes that achieved that goal. While the 51% of the people paid little or no tax for those roads and bridges. While the anointed one says that many of the hard working small bussiness owners agree that they should be giving more back to those that have done little to improve their lifestyle. I have not seen any of those people give their bussiness or any part of it to someone that would not work to keep it flourishing.
    The Anointed one says that there are a lot of smart people out there, there are a wole bunch of hard working people. If you succeeded you had help. I guess this says that if you became successful you need to giveit to those that are not successful. Just how did he become President? It must have been someone did it for him and gave it to him.. I am one that will help give it to Mitt in November.

    Sen. Patty Murray gave essenially the same speach on Monday to the folks at the Brookings Institute. There are 8-9 points in what could be described as the democratic manifesto moving forward.Obama’s talk on friday was first and what brought the house down was the” you didn’t build it” comment.Murray said the same thing in a slightly different way but surrounded it with tugs on the heartstrings that endless food stamps were ok,government was an essential part of ones life and of course the rich vs middle class routine and more.Read it.
    At first she began talking about her family, personalizing her story. As I listened I knew I had heard much of what she was saying before. It was close to the Obama speach with the same talking points.Silly me ,and I thought she was going to disseminate some new individual thinking and expound on the unponderable of the democratic social agenda.
    No, there is a neatly packaged compilation of interwoven contrivances all bent on government dependence and mocking free enterprize and the rewards it brings.This will not be just spouting off on Mitt Romney and Bain Capital they just happened to be the launch pad for the New Declaration of Dependency and Distributive Wealth.

    People created something that became a government, it kept getting abused each year by outspoken politicians that wasted the taxpayers money just like Obama but Obama took it many steps further. His first offense against the people was faking a Birth Certificate then came the showmanship which swung from him to Hawaiian’s within local government trying to claim they believe his story however someone stood up and defined the responsiveness of the Health Dept Vitals which would have supported a fake document. Obama has allowed the fake information to be tossed around for four years and little has been done to force correction, this is a prime example of who is abusing government of the people, Obama and Hawaii both believe they are superior to anyone else and can make it happen with the help of others so he claims he is not responsible for the fake documents but they serve as instruments for dedication to be broadcast or shown and they certainly were like they meant something special like a LIVE BIRTH. So there are omany more examples that Obama worked hard to commit to others memory and not his own which served to protect information so he never had to point to say he or she knows the answer DO NOT ASK ME. Sound familiar to you, Ask Not? However against the will of religions Obama crushed the U.S. Constitution to give Gay Rights such as being married, and parental rights plus hospital healthcare rights to Gays which infringe upon our santity and honor, the military will never be the same once the confusion began but who cares if they are Don’t “Ask Don’t Tell People” in America that had no ability to stand up and say honestly they are Gay Individuals. Obama was a dope addict prior to him getting into a real-time job and also a terrorist with a local street gang that made fire bombs who married one day and became a straight faced “I DID NOTHING WRONG” People whom just like abusers cost taxpayers everyday. It would not surprise me if government one day attempted to enter a unification phase where three governments would exist and there become three Constitutions with our original completely beside the point. A Stamp would appear on our flag which would be likened to a vehicle license plate to acknowledge the presence of other government officials within a government complex, so you would know there are Spanish/Hispanic or French present or American or all three or just a choice of either two. Obama sort of screwed that processing up once he finally acknowledged being a Islamist who denounced Islam as his faith to claim he is a Christian. That was a choice only Obama had to accomplish by his lonesome after he graduated from helping William Ayers. Obama’s attempt to right the American Economy could not have been done had he not leaned on Unions and Automakers that needed government money in a hurry, but it was the taxpayers whom would end up biting that expense.

    Obama is trying to say the word “RETROACTIVE” but he don’t know how he can get CONGRESS to believe in “RETROACTIVE”. The word simply means the law will revert back to a younger age for anyone whom needs Healthcare, that is why Obamacare will not work cause it involves a BRIBE from individuals which is called a TAX both by Obama and The US Supreme Court, taking their money first makes it a legal tender proposition. It really isn’t a law at all, it is written as the same thing only exclusions stand out as main purposes. One is Islamist are exempt from it since their religious activity denies Insurance or working for a Insurer. Obama forgot that the class was not to be degraded and stepped n to destroy their opportunity to be wealthier in what they have accomplished as he has since becoming President his other income is above millions of dollars a year. Why should we ask, do we really care, when its over its over. All Obama will have is a retirement home in Hawaii where he can have a nurse maid care for him before he dies of old age while the rest of us will be lucky to get into a nursing home and not have to pay because Medicare changed to 150-days then Medicare exits leaving you stranded without money to pay it, this leads to your bankruptcy which consumes any property you have and destroys your savings or investments you have since something has to happen for your situation to remain in a nursing home, many people would rather leave. The cut-off age will still be 65 years of age for qualifying for Medicaid so nursing homes are trying to BRIBE you to believe your “RETROACTIVE” don’t worry about it.

    What everyone seems to be missing is the next step in the Presidents war against achievers. The next step will be the subversion of the masses. On my way to my work for wages job, I stopped at a stop sign and realized that we were next. It was the government that put that stop sign there to keep me safe. It wasn’t me that paved the roads and painted the lines that I used daily to get to work. It would be ungrateful and selfish of me to think that the wages I earned at my job were mine when the government does so much for me. When I drive on the streets that someone else provided I should feel guilty to want to keep anymore of my wages than I need. And that folks is where this country is heading if we do not defeat the Marxists.

    Where the hell does he think the Government got the money from, to be the helpful agency he claims it to be?. The Government didn’t do that, the taxpayers own the Government, small business owns the Government, We the working class own the Government, they didn’t do that, so maybe at times the Government helps some of us out a little, but only by giving back some of what we gave them. HOOOOOOAAAAAAAA.
    Stop paying taxes, stop letting the Government borrow trillions from China, and see just how far the Government runs, and who they help then. We are the Damn Government, We Own the Government, and we are about to take it back, come November. We did do that, so that we can send your sorry butt back to Kenya to help them go Communist and run that Country, if they are stupid enough to follow in our steps and put you in charge there.
