We would not have or ever had such a robust economy without capitalistic business ventures and commerce.
Without that robust economy, we never would have been able to build up the massive military and other government programs that we have today, for those all require funds acquired via taxation.
Taxation comes from and is only possible because of the economic gains of business ventures and transactions; and, due to our capitalistic economic system which allows for the creation of wealth, essentially has access to an ever expanding pool of resources. All thanks to the hard work of the American citizenry.
Those resources were only made possible due to the ideas, hard work, and dedication of business men and women and the teams they employed; as well as their successful navigation of an ever changing and evolving market and customer base, and their ability to adapt and overcome to that market.
So whenever you hear praise of any government organization, be it the military, the police, or any of the numerous outreach, assistance or social programs the State offers; remember that all of that is made possible by the amazing men and women that make up the business world. From the owners and CEO, to the small business men and women, to the average salary and hourly employee.
It is because of the dreams that people have and their ability to follow those dreams, and because of the courage of everyday people to go out and find their own place in this world and show others how to find theirs, that we are the great nation that we are and ever were.
It is the citizens and the values we stand for that make this country great. "Since production must precede predation, the free market is anterior to the State."
