Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Another Look At The Democrat Sob-Phrase “You Didn’t Build That”

One will recall Barack Obama and Elizabeth Warren putting down and denigrating the businesses established by people of forethought and intelligence who, as entrepreneurs and industrialists, have built their dream, employed tens of millions of people and improved the lives of all Americans. These leftists believed that the electricity, natural gas, water and the roads that allowed businesses to be established and prosper were provided by government and not by the efforts of past entrepreneurs. President Obama and Senator Warren clearly stated that America’s past entrepreneurs “didn’t build that”. Well, they did build this great nation with their hard work and intelligence, and socialists can only make their big-government, socialist points if they are successful in making Americans believe that only the government can create wealth. In fact the opposite is true: the government can only create poverty and envy for those who go on the dole, and people who establish for-profit businesses create wealth for themselves and all who work for them and buy their products.

So for Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey or any other entrepreneur who set up a business and created jobs that have improved the lives of all Americans, for those entrepreneurs to be credited with the businesses they built, is just phony rhetoric if you believe America’s big-government leftists like Obama, Warren and Bernie Sanders, whose Socialist position is that all jobs and all wealth are provided by government, and individuals whose intelligence and hard work provide millions of jobs and create vast wealth that benefits the entire nation, have no part to play in a successful nation.

Currently we see a serious push from liberal Democrats who insist that we let all of the poor people of the world enter America and settle here, even though they did not build the wealth that they will be enjoying when they get here. And if they don’t have the skills to further this wealth by getting a good job when they arrive, they’ll end up on welfare, which is exactly what Democrats want them to do. We don’t need this kind of immigrants here, and they should be kept out.

What is the logic behind these uneducated and impoverished immigrants insisting on coming here and benefiting from our nation’s wealth if they did nothing to help build our nation and improve it? The only logic is that liberal Democrats want more Democrat-voting, dependent, poor people here to keep them in office. But Obama and Elizabeth themselves stated it best: “they didn’t build that”, so they should not enter.

Similarly socialists, like today’s Democrat politicians, take advantage of America’s wealth and political stability, which is assured by our constitution, even though they did nothing to build our great nation, and do very little to protect and preserve our constitution once they are in office. Per the Democrats’ own argument, they didn’t build the constitution and do precious little to protect it, so why should they be allowed to serve in responsible governmental positions when all they do is trash the constitution when they do take office?
