    That is what banks, car companies, and many special interest groups believe and actively lobby for and receive great amounts of money extorted from the public with no real accountability.

    unfortunately thats how it is for most people. i am not dependent on the govt to get anywhere, and if i was then i would probly be better off, when it comes to food in the cupboards, but i dont want to add to the stupid excuses they make up, and i do not wish to contribute to their pacification of americans by being another dependent

    The only way you can get ahead today is with help from the government---IF you are allergic to working to attain your goals.

    Somewhere the way it has become acceptable to have the mindset that we need government in order to get ahead. In reality, it is just the opposite: because so many Americans are dependent on government, they will NEVER get ahead.

    The same is true of corporations: we must stop bailing them out. Part of the success of the capitalist system is that everyone has the opportunity to succeed or fail. GM should have never been bailed out. So what if they closed ? Another company would have taken over that share of the marketplace. And how is GM showing their gratitude ? By moving 70% of its production overseas and ALL of its R &D; to China !

    That's what the regime and the left commie's want you to think. The big secret is you don't get ahead on government hand-outs and subsidies. You just barely get by,if big brother wants you too.

    Living off the government (unless you are a politician) is no way to get ahead. Once you are in their clutches they never want to let you go.

    That is an absurd proposition only an Obamabot could subscribe to. Creating multi-generational Victimcrats to build a loyal voting bloc of those who expect free stuff from those who foolishly produce it or earn it... until we all run out of other people's money.

    Government intervention is becoming more and more instrusive. With an ever growing population of folks addicted to entitlements, the government is enslaving the electorate. Human bondage is being replaced by economic bondage and the plantations are being replaced by the government. The only way to get ahead is to escape the economic masters before the chains and shackles are locked.

    If the Government would get out of our lives this country would gain wealth exponentially!!! They need to stop regulating everything, handing out my hard earned money to deadbeats and stop telling me how to live!! What an exciting and prosperous country this would be!

    The Government is there to smack you down when you succeed at doing things on your own. They are not there to run the Economy nor our lives. The Government is there to protect us as we take care of our own life.

    That's only true if getting ahead by taking from others doesn't bother you. People who have ambition and drive need nothing from the government other than to be left alone
