Arnold Schwarzenegger has also had a highly successful business career. Following his move to the United States, Schwarzenegger became a “prolific goal setter” and would write his objectives at the start of the year on index cards, like starting a mail order business or buying a new car — and succeed in doing so. By the age of 30, Schwarzenegger was a millionaire, well before his career in Hollywood. His financial independence came from a series of successful business ventures and investments.This guy knows that in order to make products and services more available to the consumers, capital investments are necessary. When the society taxes people who make these investments, not only does it steal money from them to give a quick fix to the masses made dependent on this corrupting “help”, but also it removes from the entrepreneurs the means to develop their businesses, create the progress and increase common welfare that socialists believe it is government’s job to do.
Schwarzenegger talks about Europe’s history of implementing socialist policies that cost it businesses and economics development — a mistake Europe recently realized and tried to rectify by rolling back some of the “spread the wealth” policies. Now Obama wants to implement the same ideas in US — and raise taxes not due to economic requirements but on ideological basis.
“If only some meat could be put around [Obama’s] ideas.” Then he would not be a Democrat. Probably wouldn’t be in the government to begin with.
So, how bad is this guy going to be: as bad as Jimmy Carter, JFK, Woodrow Wilson, or, G-d forbid, FDR?
