This is what happens when Republicans won’t stand up and fight back against liberal Democrat priorities. When we allow Democrat policies to grow and expand, when we allow them to move ever leftward because our so called “conservative” politicians continue standing idly by when liberal bills become law, the Democrats will continue to push to left as quickly as they can! They recognize that the GOP has basically adopted Democrat-light positions on most every major policy initiative, so they know it’s now safe for them to go for the liberal “gold” and demand real “change.”
Listen as Ted Strickland parrots President Obama and other liberals on who actually makes America great. (Here’s a hint – it’s the government that makes America great… not you.)
“The richest among us haven’t gotten there on their own either. You know, those who are well to do drive on roads that the taxpayer provides. Go to hospitals where the public has supported and made and created and are cared for by doctors who are trained in large part at public expense.”
Yep. If you’re successful in America, you owe it all to the government. This of course just sounds like rehashed Obama trope, but it also smacks of another popular liberal dunce, Senator Elizabeth Warren, who actually started this trend of thanking government for all our good gifts back in 2011.
“There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own. You built a factory out there, good for you, but I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for. You hired workers the rest of us paid to educate. You were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for.”
President Obama made this pro-government, anti-entrepreneur argument popular with the ignorant liberal crowd though during a speech in 2012.
