Two views on how we got here

"Somebody built this unbelievable American system that allows you thrive. Somebody invested roads and bridges, if you've got a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made it happen."
~ President Barack Obama, July 13, 2012

"Our forefathers, inhabitants of the island of Great-Britain, left their native land, to seek on these shores a residence for civil and religious freedom. At the expense of their blood, at the hazard of their fortunes, without the least charge to the country from which they removed, by unceasing labour, and an unconquerable spirit, they effected settlements in the distant and unhospitable wilds of America..."
~ John Dickinson and Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of the Causes and the Necessity of Taking Up Arms, July 6, 1775
