Home Depot Co-Founder: If 2012 goes the way of big government, I pity all of us

(By The Right Scoop) - Bernie Marcus, Home Depot Co-Founder says that he doesn’t “know a businessman in his right mind…that would expand their business in this market or do anything to get rid of the cash flow that they have.” He says that it’s come to the point where we are going to go the way of big government or the way of creating jobs, and that “2012 is now setting up to be the ultimate decision for this country on where we’re going to end up and if it doesn’t go the right way, I pity all of us.”

This is exactly the tone that we need to hear from businessmen and entrepreneurs. Most of America is disconnected from what they see on a daily basis and they really need to speak out like this to motivate the American public to not only vote for a Republican as president, but also and more importantly a majority of Republicans in the Senate and the House. It is that critical.
