The government has no money of its own. The only way it can obtain money is to take it at gun point from its citizens (a la IRS) or to borrow it from foreign nations like China. The only thing the government produces is debt and misery. Left to itself, a country that has a capitalist philosophy and few regulations to bind its progress will produce jobs and prosperity. Why would Obama and his myrmidons want to "rule" a country drowning in debt with a slave population when they could preside over a country of prosperity and innovation? Beats me. I didn't vote for the bum.
