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?
