These principles, freedom, liberty, and capitalism are inextricably tied. You can’t have a free market where liberty and freedom aren’t the core building blocks of the society in which it is to thrive. This is a fact. And barry knows it. But he is ideologically not a fan of our Constitution (he calls it a charter of negative rights) or the core tenets of Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness. And thereby not a fan of capitalism.
In a recent speech to the people of Roanoke, VA he uttered this:
“…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.”
Tell that to Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs. He goes on:
“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.” [Emphasis added]
What is he talking about? Teachers are merely doing their job (and being paid very well for what they produce) of “basic” education. Most real education comes from the home and real life experience. “Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive.”???? Those somebodys are OUR FOUNDERS! Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington, they and a host of other like minded liberty seeking Patriots created this system that has let capitalism thrive! Somebody else made that happen?!?!? REALLY?!?!
This man is a danger to our country, our lives, our liberty and our pursuit of happiness. He is a communist plain and simple. If you read the constitution of the USSR you see the same “collective” kind of language.
Communism, and it’s younger brother, socialism have failed wherever they’ve been tried. America has enjoyed, and led the world, with the same form of government for over 235 years! To put that in perspective France over the same time period has had something like 17 different forms of government!
A win for obama in November is a loss for all of the true kind and generous American individuals born of freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
