Charlie Daniels Column: Mr. President, When It Comes to Business, You Haven’t a Clue


Charlie Daniels Column:

Mr. Obama,

You recently made a statement to the effect that, ”If you have a business  you didn’t build it, you had help” inferring that the federal government helped  build our businesses by virtue of paving roads and building bridges and keeping  the nation safe from foreign invasion.

First of all, Mr. Obama, if I’m going to take advice about business it will  not be from somebody who has had absolutely no business experience like  yourself.

Secondly, Mr. Obama, I vehemently disagree with your premise.

Where was your government when I spent as much as 16 weeks away from my wife  and infant son to get a business started?

Where  were you on those cold winter nights when my old bus broke down in the middle of  nowhere and we had to scramble to make the next show, nobody from the government  came along to give us a ride.

Where was your government when I had to borrow money from a bank to make my  payroll?

Where was your government while I was digging out of a two million dollar  debt, playing every smoky beer joint I could to keep from losing everything I  owned?

Mr. Obama, I want to make you aware of a fact. It is the federal  government’s responsibility to build roads and bridges and keep the nation safe.  That’s what the federal government is supposed to do, not create an entitlement  society that is totally unsustainable and pile up debt that we can’t pay.

And who do you think paid for those roads and bridges in the first place,  and have been doing it for 200 years before you were even born.

The citizens of this nation do not need to pay more taxes, the federal  government needs to stop spending money it doesn’t have and has to borrow.  Because the truth of the matter is that no matter how much taxes the government  collects, things are only going to get worse because you’ll only spend it and  demand even more.

Mr. Obama you have divided this nation by making the have-nots believe that  anybody who has been successful has done so at their expense, that anything  they’ve accumulated has been stolen, not earned. That hard work and risk had  nothing to do with their success, they’ve just been lucky and should give a big  part of what they earn to the government to pass on to those who don’t even try  to be successful.

Look at what’s going on with the many black Americans who have put their  hopes and complete confidence in you and voted overwhelmingly for you. The  unemployment rate is 14 percent and the unemployment among the young African  Americans is something like 40 percent. Is that what hope and change is all  about?

Look at what’s happening in your hometown of Chicago where the murder rate  is through the roof.

Do you think your baseless rhetoric about the unfairness of the successful  in America is going to help soothe the situation?

Have you ever considered reaching out to them, instead of fanning the  flames?

Mr. Obama I don’t think you like America very much. I think you’d like to  redesign it from the ground up, to turn it into a lazy, unproductive, secular,  socialist society.

Well, that just won’t flush in a lot of ways, the most prominent being that  when all the productive people have given up and stopped trying, when all the  investors stop investing, when 80% of the population is living on government  hand outs, your government is going to run out of money and this nation will  sink into chaos.

But Mr. Obama, I’m beginning to think that’s what you want.

My help cometh from the Lord who made Heaven and Earth. Not the government  who made debt and class envy.
