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.
The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”
You can find the full speech here, and I recommend you read it for yourself. Now, I have heard all the talking heads on the left come out and try and defend this, spin this, twist this, and generally try their best to make it go away. I will tell you know that they have failed. Is there a bit of reading into it involved? Of course there is, not even President Obama brave enough to come straight out with the truth and reveal his ideology clearly and directly. The only way we have been able to recognize where he is taking America is to slowly piece together his life and ideas because the media chose to not vett him in 2008. While the clues are always there and his actions are in line with his grand plan, it’s rare that we ever get the truth this raw and revealing. These comments were from his heart not from his script. He was caught in the moment, hearing the cheers, seeing the sea of undying supporters and it just gushed out. The mere fact that the audience did gasp in disbelief is simply due to the fact they they are complete brainwashed with his aura and don’t listen to what they hear. Fortunately for America millions of sensible minded people, who haven’t drank the kool aid, did hear it and are not just gonna let it go, me included.
The fact is that President Obama is leading the charge of taking away our freedom and replacing it with dependency. The goal, as I see it, is to replace initiative with expectancy by under-minding the foundations that America was built on. Under this regime the term “successful” is no longer something to strive for or be proud of, instead its being twisted into some kind of despicable outcast that lied, cheated, and stole their way to the top. The saddest part may be that if people would take the blinders off for a few minutes they could all clearly see that this “recession” that President Obama blaming on “successful” people is being worsened by his actions and making their own lives worth. It’s the most basic principle of control used by dictators for centuries. The way to control a population is to take away everything they have, make society suffer, and them give them back less then they had before but just enough to make them think you took care of them. People no longer strive to be self sufficient, because that’s hard, it’s easier to take then to earn. The leader then turns the pack on those who stand alone on their own two feet because they are now viewed as a threat not a “success”. Look around and you will see it happening everyday.
I can only hope that there are still enough Americans who are willing to see through the spin and stand up on the right side and take back the country before it’s too late.
