Every Republican Has Missed the President’s Point Entirely!

Why? Because they see government only and strictly with a SPECIAL WELFARE focus and a special operation of the brain. Therefore, they could not understand what Pres. Obama was saying.

I understood immediately what the President said and what he meant because I have written about it before. Let me set the record straight about some basics of business in the United States, facts that everyone should keep in mind. Small business is the larger part of all business. Look at the stats. The large businesses look monstrous as buildings and territories covered and so anyone would naturally think that they are the dominant businesses by sheer size of their campuses. That is a false impression.

President Obama made the remark that the Republicans pounced on like the great cats pounce on, and take down very large animals. He said to the businessmen, “You did not make that business.”

Well, then. Who did make that business? Who is really responsible for its existence? Remember, this ain’t just some saloon and a mercantile store in a frontier town we’re talking about. No! What was it that needed to be said in order to completely explicate what the President meant?

All small businesses, as well as large businesses could not exist without the investments of tax monies that provide the “General Welfare” structures. Street carving and paving, street lighting, street patrolling, waste removal networks underground, street plowing in winters, street patching, parking systems and meters to assist turnover of clientele, building inspections and regulations of all kinds for safety, plumbing systems delivering water, eletrical delivery systems, traffic control systems. You get the idea. What did I leave out? Plenty, I bet.

It is literally true, “You did not make that business what it is, on your own.” You ignore that you had a huge input by the “General Welfare” aim of government, as set down as the founding principle of our United States government. Read the Preamble of our social contract!

Could small businesses, or very large businesses for that matter, have afforded the capital for the construction and maintenance of all of that stuff without going broke before they opened their doors?

No, they definitly did not make that business. But I think the President could have better clarified his meaning.
