I am not familiar with this company to know if he treats his employees fairly. But if he does, I do not begrudge him his success one bit. As long as
he is getting rich honestly, through hard work, and not taking advantage of his employees, then there is nothing wrong with that. This is the
American dream, and it is starting to slip away. People should have the right to work hard, and if successful, get what they earned.
I will add a disclaimer right here that I do not hold strongly to either party. I have voted both ways in the past. I voted for O last time. I have
been disappointed, and was undecided this time around. The recent debate swayed my opinion in another direction. But - the whole matter of the
government taking more from those who earned what they have, honestly through hard work, just makes no economic or moral sense.
I do think this man has some good points. What right does the government have to take it away if someone works for it, at a much higher rate than
These are the kind of people who create businesses that keep the rest of us employed. I am just one of the working stiffs out there working for a
paycheck, but I do see how hard those who run businesses work.
I have family members who do that - work hard constantly to keep their business going. I see them try so hard to make ends meet during slow times so
that they can keep all of their employees employed with hope that things will pick up.
I also see the management of my own company doing that. The president of my company sends emails anytime 24/7 and works very hard to keep things
afloat. I see his constant struggle to keep insurance benefits for employees as rates skyrocket, and his struggle to meet the growing demands of
taxes and government regulation. He lives in a big house, but I really feel he earned it. He also cares about his employees.
These business owners are the ones who keep this country going. They will help the economy by employing more people, not by giving away most of what
they earned as hand-outs.
