The truth is that all the government-provided roads in the world don't create the conditions necessary for individual success. As Dennis Prager has pointed out, the USSR had roads. So does Cuba. In Mussolini's Italy, the trains supposedly ran on time (Actually, they didn't, but Obama thinks they did). Somehow, these states were not economic powerhouses, and individual entrepreneurship didn't flourish.

The reason that you are successful is that we instituted a government on the basis that all men are created equal in their rights -- and that a government that violates those rights forfeits its reason to exist. It is not the government's job to create equality. It is the government's job to build roads and get out of our way so we can drive into a better future. Obama doesn't understand that, which is why we're currently motoring in reverse, off a fiscal and philosophical cliff.
