Obama Is Bad News for Small Businesses

I suspected as much, but now we have the proof from Obama's own words. He intends to tax the small businesses more so that he can redistribute the wealth. During a conversation with Joe the Plumber (I was wondering why McCain was talking to a "Joe" last night!), Obama said this:
"It's not that I want to punish your success," Obama told him. "I want to make sure that everybody who is behind you, that they've got a chance for success, too."

For the love of pete...

First, Obama's statement reveals how he views capitalism. He doesn't seem to either understand or accept that we already have a country that provides more opportunities for success than any other country in the world. Every immigrant who has made the Unites States their home can attest to this fact. Where else but in America can an immigrant come with only a few dollars in their pocket and then end up owning their own business within a few years? This country was built on small businesses with many becoming big business.

Secondly, Obama made a statement in the video attributing his success to yes - hard work, but also "luck." Oh, yeesh...LUCK? Are you kidding me? We make our own luck! By Obama saying that, he immediately nullified the impact of his words of "hard work" by providing a nice loophole for those who don't succeed. "Oh, well..." says Sam the Sluggard, "I guess I'm not successful because I just don't have good luck." And off he goes slurping down another beer while catching up on the soaps and drawing unemployment for most of his life.

Enough. Obama is dangerous and small businesses certainly don't need him in the Oval Office. Here's the video:

The opportunities are present for any American to succeed. They only have to avail themselves of those opportunities. This business of Obama's proposed "incentives" only incite the dependent class to remain dependent on the State. Disgraceful business.
