He's responding to Massachusetts Senatorial Candidate Elizabeth Warren, who made the following statement:
I hear all this, "You know, well, this is class warfare. This is whatever." No! There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. Nobody! You built a factory out there? Good for you! But I want to be clear: You moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You, uh, were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory and hire someone to protect against this because of the work the rest of us did.Obama said something similar:
Look, i-i-if you've been successful, you didn't get there on your own.You didn't get there on your own. I'm always struck by people who think, "Well, it must be because I was just so smart!" There are a lot of smart people out there. "It must be because I worked harder than everybody else." Let me tell you something. There are a whole bunch of hardworkin' people out there! 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 -- 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.So basically she's saying we have nothing without government To this Rush asks: "What came first, the car or the road?" Obviously the car came first. It came first because one person sat down and came up with the idea of the car. He came up with this idea because we live in a free market economy and he thought there might be an incentive -- i.e. profit -- in inventing the car."
So the government didn't invent the car. The government didnt' invent the road either, a free thinker did. So the government has never invented anything, and yet Warren wants us to think the government is responsible for everything; everything we have is because of the government.
Actually, the Internet was invented by the military. Roads were invented by free thinkers. The assembly line was invented by a free thinker. Everything we have in the country, everything that makes it great, was invented by a free thinker. NOTHING HAS EVER BEEN INVENTED BY THE GOVERNMENT EXCEPT FAILURE. EVERYTHING THE GOVERNMENT TOUCHES FAILS EXCEPT WHEN IT COMES TO NATIONAL SECURITY.
All the jobs that are created in this country are created by free thinkers, not by the government. The way to create jobs is for the government to get the hell out of the way.
I normally like to think for myself on this blog, but in times of crisis you bring out the big boys. It doesn't matter who gets credit, which is why I'm confident Rush will be fine with me quoting him here on this blog. Rush has a full time job of studying and thinking politics. He doesn't think for us, he helps us articulate ideas so we can work so we don't have to live off the government.
Rush says, " What Obama and Elizabeth Warren want you to believe is that government is the center of everything, that government starts everything. And government doesn't. Government reacts."
Rush sums it up this way:
He was indoctrinated as a child. His father was a communist. His mother was a leftist. He was sent to prep and Ivy League schools where his contempt for the country was reinforced. He moved to Chicago. It was the home of the radical-left movement. He hooks up to Ayers and Dohrn and Rashid Khalidi. He learns the ruthlessness of Cook County politics. This is what we have as a president: A radical ideologue, a ruthless politician who despises the country and the way it was founded and the way in which it became great.Warren and Obama sound like Karl Marx. Even his campaign slogan, FORWARD, was borrowed from a communist slogan "forward: away from capitalism and toward socialism." We have a battle on our hands to save our country. It's this: Socialism (Obama) or Capitalism (Romney.
He hates it.
It's an easy endorsement this year.
