Obama: 'If You've Got a Business — You Didn't Build That. Somebody Else Made That Happen'

So insulting…that a president would demean success…the very people that pay taxes to keep his corrupt, government waste machine running. The government would not exist without them. Government services would not exist without taxpayers. Infrastructure would not exist without taxpayers. Taxpayers pay for and build infrastructure. A lot of it contracted out to private sector business.

Obviously we all have help, we are all in this together, but he has no idea how much work and long hours it can take to develop an idea, and start and build a business. Many dreamers fail a few times before they succeed. Others work a full time job and then work after hours to plan and build their idea. Once you have your business running it often takes long hours, including weekends, to keep it going. Often there are no vacations for you or your family. Sometimes after a small business has several employees, the owner may make less and be paid last. If there is not enough for payroll that week, they may have to put their paycheck aside until there is enough in the bank to cover it. It can be a real struggle to build a successful business. These days it is often not worth it. In fact, because of Obama's economic policies, more small businesses are going out of business than are being created. There will never be a recovery as long as this continues. Small businesses create the jobs that fuel a recovery and Obama's economic policies decimate small businesses.

Everyone who pays taxes is already paying for government services. They are also paying to fund the corrupt government waste machine. They pay for the good and the bad. They don’t owe anything more back to government. They’ve paid taxes and fees all their working lives. They will continue to pay taxes and fees until they die. Even after they die the government takes a sizable chunk of whatever they have. In 2013 the ‘death tax’ will jump to fifty percent. These days one has to overcome the hardships placed on them by government to become successful. Government has its hands out and takes at every level. Excessive regulations are hidden taxes, unnecessarily increasing the cost of doing business. Not only did the entrepreneur build their business, create jobs, wealth and prosperity for themselves and others, but they also pay for the roads, bridges, school teachers, fire fighters and everything else. This should be encouraged and celebrated not denigrated and punished.

Most people want to give back, so they fund charities and help in other ways including funding venture groups that help others start-up their businesses or venture capital firms that help failing businesses. It would be poor judgment, and a waste of your money to pay more to a government that would waste it. If you want to help others, give money or time to charity not government. Maybe start a charity or a foundation of your own. The free-market people of the United States of America spend their money a thousand times better and more efficiently than corrupt and incompetent politicians. Until they cut corruption, spending and balance the budget they don't deserve our money. Everyone must pay the least amount possible and whatever you do, never vote for a politician who would raise taxes on anyone. We must hold them accountable. One great benefit of cutting government spending and keeping taxes low is that the economy will actually grow and recover. This will drastically lower the number of people who 'need' government handouts. Why give your hard earned money to a government that not only hurts you and others but makes it more difficult for everyone to succeed?

Does Obama despise business, success, the American dream? This would explain why his policies are not helping you grow your business. In fact his policies are punishing individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses. Individuals, entrepreneurs and businesses are the job creators. They create the wealth that keeps America growing.

To all the young people out there just starting out, anyone out there toiling away, you may have an idea, a dream and you are ready to take the next step and turn it into a service, a business. Obama and this administration do not have your back! In fact, they are out there denigrating you, criticizing success. They are trying to make you a victim, held down, content to live off of whatever they think you deserve. Are they trying to make it a stigma to be a prosperous citizen, to turn the rest of America against you? Is it now heroic to be a victim, heroic to NOT be a contributing member of society? Is this the America we have become?

It is not too late! Rescue America 2012!
