"Nobody ever got rich on his own"? What this is, Marx had a thing called surplus value. This is Marxism, pure and simple, and the surplus value of the... Marx's belief is that workers, laborers, are getting screwed by not getting any of the profits of the company, only their wages.
Obama is surrounded by people like this. But what she is saying and the reason these people have to be defeated, is saying is that since the government, quote, unquote, "pays for the basics," such as roads, that the government thus controls everything. This is why they want their hooks in the school curriculum via the school lunch program. If they can make a claim that they, the government -- not the people being the government, but they, the stewards of government -- are paying for anything, then they can control everything. So in her mind, and what guides this thinking, there is no escaping government intervention and control if some aspect of the government touches all of us. You are born in a public hospital? The government owns you! That's an example of this kind of thinking.
If there weren't a hospital built by the rest of us, you might not have survived childbirth. Therefore, we own you. Therefore, you owe us. And this is the rationale that they use. Now, of course in her example here, a robber baron came along and built a factory and is selfishly capitalizing on everybody else's labor, none of his own. She forgets that this factory owner and factory builder also paid taxes that built the roads and the infrastructure around, and so did his employees. I think it's a great thing for everybody to hear. This grand total of maybe 55 seconds of audio is one of the best teaching aids that I, El Rushbo, have ever had the opportunity to share with you throughout the 23-year history of this program. This "social contract" business, too. That's more Marxist and leftist lingo.
