President Obama’s Collectivism is Showing
As a son of a small business owner, and an employee of a small business, I easily see the moral blow that President Obama delivered to the American economy over the weekend with his “you didn’t build that” comment. It’s mind numbing, and it’s a dark sign of this President’s twisted, Marxist mind.
In the past 35 days, we’ve seen multiple examples of a President, who has zero private sector experience, try to lease the world’s largest economy out of a recession. While the President continues to live like “the 1%,” the nation is struggling and families are having problems putting food on the table. The President’s response to all of these economic problems?
For starters, we see this.
“The truth of the matter is that, as I said, we’ve created 4.3 million jobs over the last 27 months, over 800,000 just this year alone. The private sector is doing fine. Where we’re seeing weaknesses in our economy have to do with state and local government — oftentimes, cuts initiated by governors or mayors who are not getting the kind of help that they have in the past from the federal government and who don’t have the same kind of flexibility as the federal government in dealing with fewer revenues coming in.”
This is a very revealing fact that President Obama is clearly not in touch with the economy, or the American people for that matter. His idea of economic relief is to grow our government, and paint the federal government as the single driving force behind America’s economic supremacy over the rest of the world. In his mind, slowing down the growth of government is bad for the economy. The solution to shrinking government then is for the federal government to step in and fix local governments.
Need another example? Look to the most obvious and recent. Here is his widely unpopular quote which has angered most bussiness owners across America.
This was a crushing blow. With many small business owners ready to close up shop in Obama’s economy, it’s obvious that he isn’t on their side. He’s on the side of party politics and party appeasement. Screw economics, prosperity and American supremacy, those are for fascists, homophobic, sexists and racist. Or so our President seems to think.
However, American free enterprise wins, every single time. And now, they are drawing battle lines to replace Obama in 2012.
In fact, an online Fox News poll shows that only 3.11% approve of President Obama’s statement and agree with him, while 79% disagree with the President’s statement and agree that he knows nothing about economics. Meanwhile 14% voted under ‘Nothing surprises me anymore.’ I concur.
The simple fact of the matter is, conservatives need to stop being surprised. This isn’t going to change. President Obama is a does not understand business whatsoever, and that won’t change either. What we can change, is the direction of the country by replacing him in 2012.
So, President Obama, I’d like to remind you as a son of a small business owner of 20 years, that free enterprise builds America. America does not build free enterprise. By attacking that purely American philosophy, you have single handily angered a lot of other business groups. For example:
“Unfortunate remarks over the weekend show an utter lack of understanding and appreciation for the people who take a huge personal risk and work endless hours to start a business and create jobs. I’m sure every small-business owner who took a second mortgage on their home, maxed out their credit cards or borrowed money from their own retirement savings to start their business disagrees strongly with President Obama’s claim. They know that hard work does matter.” – National Federation of Independent Business
“We should applaud the risk-takers and the dreamers who are willing to stand out from the crowd, rather than denigrate what these people have done, we need to encourage more people to be like them.” — David Chavern, Chief Operations Officer of the Chamber of Commerce
Obviously, people aren’t happy. And the President will continue to make these comments to gain support of people like George Soros and green energy Super PACs in order to keep his campaign afloat.
