In today’s Detroit News, the questions is asked
You’ve got to wonder what Henry Ford would think.
Two of Detroit’s three automakers are bankrupt. General Motors Corp. and the Chrysler Group LLC are operating largely on aid from the federal government, which now owns a big chunk of the latter and will soon own a controlling stake in the former. The president of the United States has even sacked GM’s CEO and forced the company to pick new board members.
Henry Ford was a true American hero. A picture of Rugged Individualism that made our country great and a person Obama, Clinton, and the rest of Obama’s dictatorship team want to destroy.
Henry Ford’s mantra was "Price the product to meet the customer’s ability to pay and then figure out how to get the parts at the cost necessary to make a profit." That’s one reason he was quoted as saying, "If I ever find a bean counter on my factory floor, shoot him!"
In today’s market he would be hampered by the Obama dictatorship and its associated gazillion Federal and State mandates and regulations, but he would find a way to succeed, just like he did in the early 20th Century.
Henry Ford was a great man and one we should educate our children to emulate. Unfortunately, in the public indoctrination centers (aka "public schools"), generations of children have been taught to hate, envy and vilify examples of successful Rugged Individualism like Henry Ford.
That’s how America has lost its Economic and Business supremacy. Successful Rugged Individuals will not tolerate incompetence and failure, in themselves or others. It’s time we re-establish the supremacy of Rugged Individualism and make our country great, again!
What we need is to destroy is what Ayn Rand’s principle character, Howard Roark, in "The Fountainhead" states:
"Everything I said is contained in a single word-collectivism. And isn’t that the god of our century? To act together. To think-together. To feel-together. To unite, to agree, to obey. To obey, to serve, to sacrifice. Divide and conquer-first. But then-unite and rule." Part 4, Chapter 14, pg. 639
That is Obamaism.
What we need is to become what Ayn Rand’s principle character, Howard Roark, in "The Fountainhead" states:
"Independence is the only gauge of human virtue and value. What a man is and makes of himself; not what he has or hasn’t done for others. There is no substitute for personal dignity." Part 4, Chapter 18, pg. 681
That is the soul of free men and the motivation of the Rugged Individualists who made this country great..
