If I Build It, Uncle Sam Will Come

  We already know that Barack Obama is the most liberal President ever elected to the office. Conservatives have always believed that he has some downright Marxist tendencies as well. But last Friday, in a speech in Roanoke, Virginia, the President just may have let the cat out of the bag.
  Obama told the crowd, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that! Somebody else made that happen!" I am guessing that is one hell of a newsflash for all of the small business owners in America. You know, only the people who create three quarters of the jobs in this country.
  For someone who has invested time, more hours of hard work than they care to mention, money, sometimes out of your own pocket to pay employees when you are just starting out, and any other personal resources to get that business off the ground, the fact that your President is telling you that you did not build that business can only be making smoke come off the top of your head.
  But wait a minute. There was one thing missing from what will surely be known among Conservatives as "the Roanoke speech". There was no teleprompter.
  Nope. Nowhere to be found. So what does this tell us? A whole lot. It tells us of the contempt and disdain that Barack Obama has for anyone who dismisses the almighty hand of government to do it on their own. It tells us that Barack Obama looks down his nose at the very principles this country was founded upon. Of hard work, and being rewarded for that hard work with success because of sacrifices you were willing to make. It tells us what he thinks of countless generations of LEGAL immigrants who sometimes risked their very lives for a chance at the American dream. It tells us that he has no clue how the American economy works. That when you shove mountains of government regulation, taxation, and bureaucracy out of the way, those small businesses are the very core of the economic engine that runs America. It tells us that Barack Obama believes that government, not people, is what makes America go 'round. Without the comfort zone of the teleprompter, we know what Barack Obama truly believes.
  But this is an election year. it is probably a safe bet that he won't let that happen again any time soon.
