From a man that has never run a business a day in his life.
A Man that has NOT produced anything with his bare hands.
From a “Union” President that condones Union’s taking money from their members for political causes.
From a President that “shares the taxpayer wealth” Crony Capitalism style giving money to bankrupting Green companies because they donated to his campaign in 2008 (Solyndra, Tonopah, Serious Windows, etc.) and supported his Green Initiative.
From a President that has sent MILLIONS of taxpayer dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and has sent taxpayer dollars to Palestine to “Green” their buildings.
From a President that condones regulations through fiat and the EPA to strangulate the Coal Industry forcing coal plants to shut down and hundreds of coal miners to lose their jobs.
In the past year 400+ U.S. Citizens have expatriated themselves to avoid the Obama taxation.
From a President that chastises Mitt Romney falsely accusing him in the Bain Capital expose, yet fails to tell America he himself has received campaign donations from Bain Capital and will not return that money.
From a President that chastises Mitt Romney for overseas accounts (Romney reported them on his tax forms), yet fails to tell America that Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and “daddy money bucks” George Soros ALL have accounts and investments overseas.
From a President that complains Congress is NOT doing enough, yet Senator Harry Reid, in the Senate, is holding up 30+ bipartisan House jobs bills in the Senate and will NOT bring them up even for discussion. Why isn’t Obama chastising Harry Reid? Did Obama give Reid the order not to do anything until after the election?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ‘IF YOU’VE GOT A BUSINESS — YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT. SOMEBODY ELSE MADE THAT HAPPEN’
July 14, 2012

The White House has released the transcript of President Obama’s recent speech in Roanoke, Virginia, and it holds a number of noteworthy statements.
“Channeling Elizabeth Warren,” in the words of Jazz Shaw at Hot Air, Barack Obama said that successful Americans “didn’t get there” on their own.
The official transcript relates:
There are a lot of wealthy, successful Americans who agree with me — because they want to give something back. They know they didn’t — 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. [Emphasis added]
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]
Watch a clip of the remarks, via C-SPAN (the clip begins with Obama’s declaration that we asked the wealthy to pay more taxes during the Clinton administration, and did better for it): VIDEO HERE.
Last September, Elizabeth Warren made made news after she said that “there is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody.” Her speech received wide criticism, and now Barack Obama seems to be saying almost exactly the same thing.

Hot Air concludes:
I suppose this is the part where you [Barack Obama] remind them that when you jack up their taxes, it’s really just so you can give that money back to all the other people who actually built their business. But seriously, this is straight off the pages of Elizabeth Warren’s mind bending remarks from early this year. Those came crashing down around her ears, even in some Left leaning circles, so it’s a serious puzzler as to why Barack Obama would try to pick up that ball and run with it. Rather revealing, though.

Karl Marx was paid by the “League of the Just” (later named the “Communist League”) in 1847 to write the Communist Manifesto, and paid again to rewrite it in 1848. The Manifesto was intended to incite violent revolution, was a recipe for tyranny itself, and was later used as propaganda (a ‘glorious goal’ to believe in) to blind followers to the realities of the brutal dictatorships that oppressed all workers and slaughtered millions under Communist rule. Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” and Mao’s “Little Red Book” served similar evil and deadly purposes. Many dictators throughout history and today attempt to disguise their tyranny with fancy labels and phony philosophies to make slavery seem somehow just and essential–another example was the earlier doctrine of “divine rule of kings.” These 10 steps are just a part of the Manifesto, the full text of which can be found on the web.
Western nations including the United States have gradually implemented virtually all of Marx’s 10 key steps toward creating a dictatorship. What are some examples can you find? Americans would be wise to study the “Ten Planks” and demand that the President and Congress abolish all laws, regulations and agencies which govern these (and all other) unconstitutional seizures of power.
Communism was never intended to free man, but to enslave him; indeed the Communist Manifesto promised a “dictatorship of the proletariat” and history proved it always ended up slaughtering and enslaving millions of the proletariat.
Karl Marx’s “10 Planks” to seize power and destroy freedom:
Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.
A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.
Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.
Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.
Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.
Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.
Extension of Factories and Instruments of Production Owned by the State, the Bringing Into Cultivation of Waste Lands, and the Improvement of the Soil Generally in Accordance with a Common Plan.
Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.
Combination of Agriculture with Manufacturing Industries; Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between Town and Country by a More Equable Distribution of the Population over the Country.
Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children’s Factory Labor in it’s Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.

“What a disappointment to hear President Obama’s revealing comments challenging the significance of America’s entrepreneurs.
“His unfortunate remarks over the weekend show an utter lack of understanding and appreciation for the people who take a huge personal risk and work endless hours to start a business and create jobs.
“I’m sure every small-business owner who took a second mortgage on their home, maxed out their credit cards or borrowed money from their own retirement savings to start their business disagrees strongly with President Obama’s claim. They know that hard work does matter.
“Every small business is not indebted to the government or some other benefactor. If anything, small businesses are historically an economic and job-creating powerhouse in spite of the government.”
Whatever happened to the “Dream” of Free Enterprise? The pride of working to have your own money for a home, car, children, etc.
For those on government assistance and welfare: Your free ride will likely end if Obama is re-elected. Michelle Obama even stated such during the 2008 campaign, but the swooners didn’t listen:
Michelle Obama: “Barack Will Require You to Work.”

“Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”
