Obama declaring the government is a free provider to all is wrong and shows the radical belief in an overseeing all power god-government upon which all success in life is dependent. And his partisans say "Yes master" to anything he says.
Here's a clue. Education isn't free to the public provided by the government. Education is paid for by people, not the government. The government doesn't actually pay for anything. People pay for it.
But in Obama's view, the government involuntarily takes money from people, then acts like it is benevolent charity the government gives to people when some that money it took goes back to people - after the government siphons off a trillion dollars for itself of the money it took from people.
Obama got it backwards. The message should be about government in the statement "you didn't build that," and not targeted down at businesses and individuals for the purpose of trivializing their efforts to try to give credit for their risks, efforts and successes instead to government.
What is amazing is that comments like "You didn't build that", take the hard work of people, like my friend, and make it "non exceptional". If her accomplishment was so easy, then everyone would be in her shoes. But that is not how it works. If it weren't for people like her, who are willing to work hard, save, deny themselves, pay taxes and build a business, then the govt wouldn't be spending as large as they do.
There is literally no difference.
Hell, I even give a lot of credit to my professors in my success. Bet you won't hear many conservatives preaching that.
