Obama reminds us that it’s not because we’re smart, hard-working, or driven that we succeed – its because someone else helped us out along the way.
The veil on Obama’s collectivism philosophy is lifting. You owe your life, your earnings, and your sense of accomplishment to the mass of people around you and those that came before you. Ditch diggers and doctors share equal responsibility (or blame?) for any opportunity you may have found and seized in your life. The small-minded people of Roanoke, Virginia cheering him on – along with many of his liberal supporters live and die by this philosophy. Why? Not because it lets them take those pesky successful nation building wealthy women and men down a notch or ten (although that does make them feel all tingly), its because if no one is responsible for their own success than NO ONE can be blamed for their own failure. You cannot be dumb, lazy, and just bad at life – someone else is at fault.
Think you are smarter, more hard-working than that baby mama with four kids by three different daddy’s living solely on the government dole that they angrily believe is their right to have and your duty to provide? Think again says Mr. Obama.
