BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA JR AND ELIZABETH WARREN BOTH ARGUE THAT INDIVIDUALS OWE THEIR SUCCESS TO "THE COMMONS" BECAUSE WITHOUT RULE OF LAW, INFRASTRUCTURE, ETC AMERICA WOULDN'T BE A HOSPITABLE PLACE TO DO BUSINESS.
Elizabeth Warren yesterday came to the defense her former boss President Obama’s controversial statement that businesses’ owners can’t take credit for their success, repeating her own campaign line that, “nobody got rich on their own.”
Warren’s reiteration of her statement — which became an iconic and controversial cornerstone of her campaign — comes as conservatives have leapt on Obama for saying “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
Warren said during a campaign stop in Dorchester yesterday, “I think the basic notion is right. Nobody got rich on their own. Nobody. People worked hard, they build a business, God bless, but they moved their goods on roads the rest of us helped build, they hired employees the rest of us helped educate, they plugged into a power grid the rest of us helped build,” she said.
“The rest of us made those investments because we wanted businesses to flourish, we wanted them to grow, we wanted them to create opportunity for all of us. That’s what we do together. We get richer as a country when we make those investments.”THIS IS A HOLLOW STRAW MAN ARGUMENT:
NOBODY ON THE RIGHT WANTS TO ERADICATE THE RULE OF LAW OR INFRASTRUCTURE. NOBODY ON THE RIGHT WANTS TO END ALL "THOSE INVESTMENTS".
IT'S NOT THE PHYSICAL ENGINEERING WE OBJECT TO.
IT'S THE SOCIAL ENGINEERING WE OBJECT TO.
AND THE NOTION THAT BECAUSE WE ALL BENEFIT FROM THE RULE OF LAW AND INFRASTRUCTURE THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS ENTITLED TO TAKE AS MUCH AS THEY WANT OF WHAT INDIVIDUALS EARN.
THIS NATION WAS FOUNDED UPON THE NOTION THAT GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE LIMITED AND OPERATE ONLY WITH THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED - AND THAT INCLUDES TAXES.
THE UNREAD, 2000+ PAGE OBAMACARE LAW AND THE 2000+ PAGE DODD-FRANK LAW - AND EVERY PENNY OF THE SO-CALLED "GREEN ECONOMY" LOANS - ALL VIOLATE THAT COMPACT.
THEY DIMINISH OUR LIBERTY AS THEY INCREASE THE SIZE AND POWER OF THE GOVERNMENT, AND - IN THE CASE OF THE "GREEN" LOANS AND "GREEN LAWS" - DECREASE THE GENERAL WELFARE BY HURTING THE GENERAL POPULACE - (BY WASTING DEAR FUNDS AT A TIME WHEN WE ARE ALREADY IN TOO MUCH DEBT, AND INCREASING THE COST OF ENERGY FOR EVERYONE) - IN ORDER TO ASSIST A FEW OF THEIR CRONIES AND FINANCIAL SUPPORTERS.
OBAMA AND WARREN ARE INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST WHEN THEY MAKE THESE STRAW MAN ARGUMENTS.
OBAMA AND WARREN CANNOT ARGUE FROM THE TRUTH AND WITHOUT EMPLOYING LOGICAL FALLACIES - LIKE THE STRAW MAN ARGUMENT - BECAUSE THEIR TRUE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY IS ANTI-AMERICAN AND COMPLETELY DISCREDITED AND MORALLY AND POLITICALLY BANKRUPT.
YES: ANTI-AMERICAN: SOCIALISM REQUIRES AN INVASIVE AND POWERFUL AND ANTI-LIBERTARIAN CENTRAL GOVERNMENT, AND THAT TYPE OF GOVERNMENT IS DIAMETRICALLY OPPOSED TO THE TYPE OF GOVERNMENT OUR FOUNDERS FOUGHT FOR AND DESIGNED.
VOTE ACCORDINGLY. VOTE ROMNEY.
