SmartThings: Awesome push-back on Romney’s “build this” lie

If you’re on Facebook, please give this start-up page some love (and “likes.”). This is a small business that is not afraid to push back against Mitt Romney’s “you didn’t build that” lying ad (i.e., the one that took President Obama completely out of context).

Check out their description on their Facebook page:

“Yes, we built this company, but we couldn’t have built it without America. We couldn’t have built it without the Internet. We couldn’t have gotten to work without crossing American roads and American bridges. We couldn’t have built it without the schools where we were educated, and the teachers who taught us. No person is an island, and no small business is successful without standing on the shoulders of others who came before it.”

“We are grateful to America, and we intend to keep on building this company right here, and to give back our fair share so that others can benefit from us in the way we benefited from others.”

“That is our pledge, and we call on other companies to do the same – to give back to America in the same way that America has given to you.”

I’ve been helping them the last few days. And I intend to do more, given this. More small businesses need to speak out like this.
