They Are Murdering Small Business: The Percentage Of Self-Employed Americans Is At A Record Low

from Economic Collapse Blog:

The percentage of Americans that are working for themselves has never been lower in the history of the United States.  Once upon a time, the United States was a paradise for entrepreneurs and small businesses, but now the control freak bureaucrats that dominate our society have created a system that absolutely eviscerates them.  This is very unfortunate, because by murdering small business, the bureaucrats are destroying the primary engine of job growth in this country.  One of the big reasons why there are not enough jobs in America today is because small business creation is way down.  As I mentioned yesterday, entrepreneurs and small businesses are being absolutely devastated by rules, regulations, red tape and by oppressive levels of taxation.  If anyone doubts that small business in the United States is dying, just look at the charts below.  Sadly, this is what the bureaucrats that run things want.  They don’t want us to be independent of the system.  Instead, they are much more comfortable when as many of us as possible are heavily dependent on the system in one way or another.  If all of us have to go running to the government or to one of the big corporations for a job, then we are much easier to control.  But as the control freaks continue to construct their bureaucratic utopia, they are also killing off what once made the U.S. economy so great.

    Spot on! I’ve been a residential general contractor for 25 years. For the past 5 years I have said fuck it! I ain’t playing their game anymore. I am still young (53) and quite capable of owning and managing a construction firm which could easily employ 20 people!! But when I have to deal with 5 to 7 government employees just to get a building permit, etc. …..I’m done with thier shit! I now live quietly off rental income and do as little as possible. Fuck em! They have DESTROYED all motivation to succeed in this land.

    Oh I don’t know about that. I recently read a book “Farm City” by Novella Carpenter about her farm in downtown oakland on an abandoned lot. On her block which was a cul de sac, they had an illegal bar run by drag queens, they had a nice older couple who a couple of times a month ran an illegal fish/chicken restaurant out of their home (they lived a couple of blocks away and the older man actually caught the fish out in the San Francisco Bay), they had the buddhist monks across the street giving out food to the hungry several times a day without a permit and her boyfriend ran an illegal bodyshop/car repair place out of their apartment buildings back yard. The defacto security guard/social director was a homeless man who lived in a car parked at the curb.

    These people were of all races, faiths, gender, sexual orientation and they all got along great running small businesses without the need for any government licenses or anything. In the supposedly mean streets of oakland, CA these people lived in peace and cooperation. The govt. would come and haul off the homeless man’s car every couple of months and take all his posessions with it but they would all help him find a new abandoned car to drag in. They valued him keeping watch out for everybody.
