Does anyone else find it interesting, that 25% chose government, yet no one has made this arguments validity?

Correction, this poll just moved quickly to only 5% government support!

Look, I say it's both. For the very reasons you use to claim it's all business. You cannot have it both ways! If it all business then you can't sit there and blame Government for everything. It's a team effort. Also I am looking at all businesses

Not just small business. I have worked for both and I agree, small business is getting squeezed and it pisses me off too. This blame game really irritates me.

If you want to get angry be annoyed with the mega corporations and the political influence they have.

Government only "creates" government jobs, when it comes to the public sector (which Hilary was referring) the gov creates policy and regulations that affect job creation, they do not in any way create jobs. Obama policies have hurt businesses.

Obama didn't start my company, he didn't call my first customer, he didn't hire my first or 30th employee. Obama didn't pay the bonuses last year, he didn't pay for the 4 company barbecues this summer. Obama did not build my company.

Obama did however pass more regulations to suppress my business through EPA and other federal regulatory procedures. Tax through capitalization reform has hurt almost every business.

Oh gosh, clearly this poll was created to enable a referendum to bash Hillary Clinton and President Obama.

And here I was, thinking it's legit. Silly me. Sorry I bumbled in on your little party.

Actually, this applies to both obama and bush. But, it was inspired by the speech Hillary Clinton gave Friday, of which in part I shared at the beginning of the thread.

And if we are getting technical, the poll is legitimate, it is open for anyone with knowledge on the topic. From all sides of the issue. For instance, you said "both".

Giving you an open platform to elaborate.

The pathetic thing is, she may be running in 2016 and people will actually vote for her as President of the Nanny State!

It's a fascinating thing that this even has to be asked.

Hillary was taped saying the govt yesterday. Hence the poll. Wish OPrime had a link in here.

The government creates a lot of jobs.

Unfortunately the working oblivious pay those wages.

“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Hillary Clinton said.
“You know that old theory, ‘trickle-down economics,’” she continued. “That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.”

I'm sorry if my conservative mind fails to comprehend this absurd liberal mindset...but all I have seen the government do, is over regulate and overtax my business. Making it difficult to grow.

Her statements are meant for a crowd that you're not a part of. She's saying exactly what those people want to hear. Whether it's true has nothing to do with it. Alas, this is how low American politics are.

I believe this goes deeper than the the crowd she was talking to. Liberals believe in Big government. They act as if we (common citizens) are incapable of taking care of ourselves. Some even believe kids are property of the government, not parents.
