Wingnuthead sticks his foot in his mouth, and 90% of the country is, I fear, too fucking stupid to understand it.
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.
yeah, it’s a good thing Government has such a great job that it can afford to pay for all those teachers, roads, fire departments, etc. so we can all ride the backs of eagles to attain our own small success.
Wait, the government isn’t a producer, it’s a parasite. it produces nothing and consumes everything it can get it’s greedy mitts on.
Look, wingnuthead, WE built those roads. WE pay those teachers. WE pay the fire department. WE PAY FOR EVERYTHING. We did not get where we are as a RESULT of government, we did despite it. Everything that happens, every business that opens, everything you see around you, people have had to fight the government tooth and claw to succeed. At no time is the Government an aid to enterprise, it is the opposite; it is an obstacle to success, and the more the government the greater the obstacle. Socialism always collapses under it’s own weight, and only the ignorant maintain otherwise, ever.
The morons in the political arena as well as their butt buddies in the media consistently screw this pooch, and we let them get away with it. Why oh why do they not report to their desks every monday with the bleeding marks of horsewhips across their midsections? Why do we let this stand?
