The Government Built that Business

It must have been quite a shock to local business people to hear President Obama tell them that the government is they reason there are any successful businesses in Havre and the rest of America. I think the exact quote was “If you’ve got a business – you didn’t build that. Somebody else built that.”

Like a good friend commented the other day: “Here I thought that my taking two mortgages, drawing a very limited salary and working 16 hours a day is what helped build my business.”

The fact of the matter is that the government’s historic role has been to over-regulate businesses, throw up road blocks and actually punish a small business person for being successful. Do we really want 4 more years of this guy?

  1. Whereas the collective may have helped to build your business, when you fail, you fail by yourself apparently.

  2. Try and do anything business wise and see how much crap you have to go through. Like try selling a jar of chokecherry syrup commercially. It will take you months to get the packaging and labeling approved.
