Look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there.'Somebody else made that happen.' What the..?! This guy is such a nitwit. He really believes this stuff!
If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.
Look, Barrack, if someone works hard and is fortunate enough to be successful, they very well might want to give back. A lot of American's do. That would be called charity, and it is laudable.
What you want to do is just take from us, all of us, and then hand it out to your cronies and supporters. That is called theft, and it is detestable. 'But my motive is good', you say. No, Barack, your motive is to use our money to keep you and yours in power. And to achieve this you work on the worst qualities in us: envy, petty jealousy, greed. You manipulate our human short comings to place yourself in the cat bird seat.
Here in America we take pride in independence, we honor hard work and discipline, and we don't belittle it. Running around marking success as ill got is just to give yourself a reason to steal. It's pathetic. Get with the program, Mr. President.
