Yes, You Built It. Now Vote to Make Sure You Keep It

I hope you watched the presidential debates. They have been interesting and entertaining. But sometimes they were downright frightening for small-business owners.

Like when President Obama admitted that if re-elected, he will accelerate his policies that take your earnings and re-distribute them to even more  federal government programs.

Not to mention stepping up their aggressive regulatory agenda.

Scary too were the carefully coded anti-free-enterprise, class-warfare messages. Clearly, if you are successful and earn profits, the hard-earned dollars you hope to use growing your business and reward your employees will be appropriated by Uncle Sam.

Those bucks will be spent fattening social programs and as stimulus for risky environmental gambles such as the five now-bankrupt, clean-energy boondoggles the president subsidized with taxpayer cash.

All touted as huge job creators and saviors of the environment.
