Remarks recently made by Presidential usurper B. Hussein Obama have caused an uproar amongst Republicans as well as independents and probably one or two honest Democrats.
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” Obama said. “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.”
As if by magic our entire rail and highway system sprang into place the instant the Constitution was ratified. No taxes were required for this miracle – the government simply fired up the printing presses an voila – money gushed forth. With a slight re-writing of history, it also explains how the Native Americans either fled to Mexico or Canada or voluntarily confined themselves to reservations.
The federal government is hasty to provide aid to cities suffering from natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires and tornadoes. Now we know why. Since the federal government rather than private investors built the cities the federal government is, of course, obligated to rebuild them.
The Wright brothers did not invent heavier-than-air flight. Somebody else did that for them. Henry Ford did not create the assembly line, somebody else did the work for him. Ford simply took the credit. All the inventing, building, creating and re-building the federal government has done helps explain the $15 + trillion national debt.
And I’m sure that somewhere in the heartland a farmer, hearing Obama‘s declaration, leaned against his tractor, wiped the sweat from his brow, shook his head and said, “Well Glory be. If I knew how simple it is to farm I would have avoided all the sweat and worry about crop failure and just laid back and let somebody else do it all for me.”
