I listened to President Obama's speech when he declared "you didn't build it" then proceeded to say "the government made that possible."
Who is this government?
A government of the people, for the people and by the people of the United States of America. The people need roads, bridges and infrastructure. The people hire government officials by election to do the will of the people. The people pay these officials to hire engineers, contractors, etc., to build these things. The people pay for these things in the form of taxes. We do that so we can get to our homes, to work, move our military, transport our goods, provide necessary services, and yes, for those who are willing to risk everything and work long hard hours, to earn our livings and provide jobs for others by starting a business. The government is merely a vehicle through which we achieve all these things.
