Obama: There are No Self-Made Men?

Not for those who benefited from Affirmative Action, that's for sure!

You either believe in the individual, or you believe in collectivism. It’s clear where Obama stands.

My guess is that Obama is speaking about himself.

He certainly didn’t get where he is on his own-—but he is hiding who got hime there.

Oh!! We know some of them, Bill Ayres, Tony Rezco, Jeremiah Wright,Frank Davis, but there are others hidden in his background. Others who now benefit from his Government Largesse.

Of course the Media is doing a superb job of covering up for this waste product who wants to continue tearing our country down for another 4 years.

The first ape to use a stick to dig ants owed nothing to the other apes.

In a way, he’s right. Many people give God the glory for helping them with their businesses and any success they have.

I don’t doubt he sincerely believes this. He also probably gives a masonic prayer to whomever provides for him. Considering he hates Christ and anything Christian, his statements manifests he likely has fully intentionally worshiped another and been given everything he has ever had by the Father of lies.

As someone pointed out on Rush last week, the old Soviet Union had roads and schools.

Obama, who has never had to do anything on his own. ‘His’ books are penned by others, he was accepted into college and given titles and positions and community jobs based on affirmative action. He was run for president by his handlers and the press has made every excuse for him. The telepromptor gives him his speeches and when he leaves them it is painfully obvious. He has been given everything based on entitlement, the color of his skin and not his character. He lacks the imagination to see how success can also be earned by the individual. Such a person should not be reelected.

What is missing from the conversation is the question: what system best promotes the welfare of society as a whole? One where the government takes all the money and redistributes it "fairly" or one where people keep most of the money they earn and use it as they wish? The Obama admin and lib/leftists in general are trying to make the argument that because a small percentage of the public, the very poor, cannot compete with the rest of the producers, the producers should be penalized.

It's a stupid argument to say because government builds roads, they deserve to take a lion's share of your income and redistribute it. That's like telling a writer because other people built the writing equipment he or she used to write their works, they don't deserve what they've earned.

Obama: There are No Self-Made Men?

"...Harry Truman was called a traitor by Richard Nixon. Harry reportedly called Nixon an SOB. When Harry was questioned about it he said, “I would never call him that: after all, he claims to be a self-made man.”...."

ergo....

” In a capitalist system, each one of us tends to receive an amount equal to our marginal contribution to nation’s output of goods and services. That is, each of us tends to receive an income equal to our contribution to generating national income.”

This is the critical point Obama doesn’t understand. He views the economy as a fixed pie, the only issue being how to divide it “fairly.” He doesn’t understand either the idea of positive sum gains—that the rich get rich by CREATING value, not taking it away from others—or the idea of value-added.

Innovators and entrepreneurs benefit from identical roads and schools that everyone else does. But their economic reward is related to the ADDITIONAL value they add to the system by inventing/building a better mousetrap—something that no one else did and would exist BUT for their creativity/effort. Thus, one cannot legitimately attribute their riches to the roads and schools since if it were simply a matter of providing schools and roads, then EVERYONE should have been able to invent Windows or the iPad or the cell phone etc. That this didn’t happen proves that the creators bring something to the table that others lack and in a fair society should be compensated accordingly.
