The current kerfuffle about Burger King moving its headquarters to Canada in order to avoid the astronomical taxation rate in the U.S. illuminates the mental attitude of liberals. Instead of understanding that businesses voluntarily established themselves in, or
relocated to, the United States during the 20th century when taxes were low and prosperity was the norm, and thus intentionally deciding that lower taxes lead to a more prosperous country and a higher standard of living for its citizens, liberals would rather heap shame on Burger King and call them unpatriotic for moving its headquarters to a foreign country with a lower tax rate. The charge of non-patriotism goes to the heart of what big-government liberals don’t understand about a corporation and its fiduciary duty to its employees, customers and stakeholders to make as much profit as possible via the sale of the company’s product or service.
Directly related to a corporation’s fiduciary responsibility to conduct business responsibly is the government’s Constitutional responsibility to assure it’s citizen’s liberty and security. Thus, it’s as obvious as the next gaff on Joe Biden’s lips that Obama and his liberal cohort in Congress and the EPA don’t understand their own duty to protect American citizens (examples: Obama was surprised by the military might of ISIS and has admitted that he has no strategy or plan to eliminate them after a year of daily security briefings in which their threat was clearly described to him; consider also the threat to America’s economy and its physical health presented by Obama’s open border along the southern United States; denying Americans the right to select their own healthcare and forcing Obamacare on us) and to assure an ecomony that allows our citizens to work, save and prosper.
