Many are saying that President Obama just doesn’t understand capitalism, that his big government ideas are born of a misunderstanding of what makes the United States of America the great nation it has become. Many think that he just doesn’t grasp our American culture, our philosophy, and our founder’s vision. With his comments made at a campaign stop in Roanoke, Virginia on July 13, one can easily think that might be the case.
Here is what he said about the business sector:
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.
So, Mr. President, no one makes his own business? Someone else handed it to him? And the wellspring of all business is government spending?
As they used to say on Saturday Night Live back in the day, “Barack you ignorant slut.”
Many are saying that this, along with a plethora of other off handed comments he’s made over the years proves he doesn’t understand the American economy. Other comments such as his 2008 claim that he wants to “redistribute” everyone’s wealth, his thought that he wanted to “necessarily bankrupt” the coal industry in order to implement jobs-killing faux enviro-nut rules, his crony loans to multiple failed Solyndra-like “green” energy companies, and his sweetheart deals with other friends, campaign donors, and members of his administration — all with OUR tax money — all this shows he is not a capitalist, but a quasi-fascist that thinks the State should own and control the business sector.
Representative Paul Ryan (R, Wis.) noted that Obama let his mask slip again with these newest comments. In an interview with James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute, Ryan said, “Every now and then, President Obama pierces the veil. He’s usually pretty coy about his ideology, but he lets the veil slip from time to time.”
The Republican Party also thinks Obama doesn’t get it.
But, in my opinion there is no way to think that Obama is just an idiot that “doesn’t get it.” In fact, he gets it quite well. You see, his goal is to destroy the United States of America. His goal is to tear us down, put us in decline, lay us low.
He “gets it,” alright. He understands full well what he’s doing.
He hates this country and wants it materially harmed. He thinks it’s unfair that the United States is so powerful and successful and wants to knock us down a few dozen pegs.
Barack Obama does not view the United States with an American perspective. He does not believe in this country. He never has.
And he’s succeeding at his destructive goals.
You vote for Obama and you are voting for the end of this country. It really is just that simple.
