In a speech at a Fire Station in Roanoke VA, Obama said that you can’t achieve success on your own.
If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
“There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me because they want to give something back,” the president said. “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.”
Sounds a lot like Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, a liberal candidate for the US Senate in Massachusetts, in August 2011 when she said: “There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody.”

Unbelievable! Does Obama really think that businesses didn’t become successful without working hard and being smart? Does Obama really believe that you will accept this example of the Socialist Marxist Collectivist Communist Big Government rhetoric that Obama and people like him believe in?
Apparently so! Or more to the point, what Obama is saying is that the government made you successful and that you have to share your success with everyone else. This is why Obama is running around with more of the Class Warfare campaign message.
So your success is because you stole it from someone else. It is pure redistributionist talk. Suppose you were in college and someone wanted to redistribute your grade point average GPA.
So those students with good grades should share their GPA with those that didn’t earn it? Listen to how students justify and compare that taxes are not the same thing. How is that not different? You’ve been successful in your studies and made a 4.0 GPA and now you have to share your points with others that didn’t work as hard. Compare that to taxes; you have a business that is successful and you’ve made over $250,000 in income to grow and continue your business. Now the government wants to tax your success at a higher rate and redistribute your money to those that aren’t that successful.
When the problem isn’t taxation, it’s spending. After 3 and ½ years of malfeasance management of the economy, Obama is still blaming President George Bush. Obama now claims that your success is not yours and that someone else contributed to your success. You know what that means, you’ve got to give your hard earned money to whomever the government feels deserves it.
What’s my motivation? Where’s the desire to go create a business and be successful? If the government (Obama Regime) is not going to allow me to keep my money, then why should I work?
It’s very apparent that Obama wants to rewrite the U.S. Constitution from the Declaration of Independence to Dependence. A European Socialist, cradle to grave, nanny state government. We all know how well Europe is doing economically right?
I believe this has been Obama’s plan all along. His vision of “Hope and Change” is to fundamentally transform America into a welfare nation. The regime has been issuing more Food Stamps (EBT) than any other administration before.
Because the United States is and has been the most successful nation in the world, Obama believes that success was at the expense of other nations. If anyone hasn’t noticed yet, but Obama has been redistributing American wealth to other countries, even to our enemies.
You can call the Obama regime the greatest outsourcing administration in American history. Let’s take a brief look at this regime’s accomplishments:
Brazil got 2 billion dollars to drill oil for us. Columbia got 2 billion dollars to refine the oil for us. Fisker got $500 million sent to Finland to build electric cars. $91 million went to a Texas wind farm that got their windmills from Mitsubishi — a Japanese company. Jobs that Obama outsourced!

Obama the Outsourcer in Chief! Then there’s the Solar panel companies that received billions of dollars that have all either gone bankrupt or moved their operations to Mexico and China. All of it was taxpayer’s dollars that went overseas to employ non-Americans. The success of Obama’s program has been creating jobs in other countries, but not here in the U.S. The purpose of the stimulus was to stimulate other economies, just not ours.
Now the Obama regime wants to raise taxes on the “wealthy” people. Wealthy means anyone making over $250,000. With Obamacare now deemed a tax by the Supreme Court, taxes on everyone will be going up, not just the wealthy. In those Obamacare taxes are some of the cruelest forms of punishment. For example, parents of disabled children using Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) will be capped at $2,500, it is currently unlimited. There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education.
Obama thinks you are stupid. That you’ll believe this nonsense that without government, you will not be able to care for yourself, your healthcare and your future. The government wants to control how you spend your money, so much so that they will tax it out of you by hook and by crook. How much is enough?
