If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help.
Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If youve got a business you didnt build that. Somebody else made that happen.
So unless someone helps you, you will never be successful. Unless you get a government grant, you can't start a business? That is an utter crock. For generations people have toiled, scrimped and saved to build businesses, all the while paying taxes on their earnings to fund the very roads and bridges they drove or walked over to get to work.
The difference then was, they didn't need government help --- only for government to stay out of the way! Today, government won't leave them alone.
Romney had better run ads with this. Obama seems to think businesses don't pay property taxes. One more example that he never spent any time in the private sector...to Obama, government is the hub of life.

What about the businesses who did have to build their own roads, extend the water, sewer, power, phone to their project sites? Not to mention pay all of the permit costs!
I do think that if he looked at industrial age of America those people, Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegy all pretty much did it themselves. They had the vision and resources to do it. But because they didn’t drive nails, rivets or work the line they wouldn’t and shouldn’t get any return on their genius and investment!
