Since many compare President Obama to Abraham Lincoln, I direct your attention to his own words.
"Property is the fruit of labor...property is desirable...is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."
The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln edited by Roy P. Basler, Volume
VII, "Reply to New York Workingmen's Democratic Republican Association"
(March 21, 1864), pp. 259-260.
The continued nationalization of business must cease. The out of control entitlements should be curtailed to those that are absolutely necessary.
