I'm not a libertarian, I'm not saying there there is not inter-dependency. In my opinion, the greater necessity of govt is in the limiting of business and the avoidance of wreckless behaviors that would endanger the common man and the environment. That being said, to state that "You didn't build that!" shows a blatant disrespect for American ingenuity and entrepreneurial endeavor. Business very well would exist without govt, and has; govt would not exist without business.No, but that's not the point here. The government has to act as a middle man in certain situations where private companies simply aren't capable of fulfilling said role. Think of the railroads built in the 1800's, and the millions of dollars of subsidies that enabled private companies to accomplish such a task, the prospect of private entities collecting the massive amount of capital to even attempt such an endeavor would be bleak at best, or alternative energy in the present day. Many companies rely heavily on government subsidies and grants in order to undergo research for future implementation. Often times, the government is the only entity that can fill this void.
