Questions for a Socialist

Hypothetical:

My name is Joe, I have a modest background, and I didn’t finish collage.

In my early 20’s, I started work in a blue-collar, but decent-paying job to support my family. I had to work overtime nearly every week, and it hurt my marriage, but we had to make ends meet. I did this for years. But one day, I had an idea.

I had an Idea for a product and service that people might buy. Nobody was offering this where I lived, so I thought this may be an opportunity to start a business.

I had a few dollars saved, and took out a couple of loans to make my idea come to life.

We struggled at first, but over time, my product caught on, my business became successful, and I was able to pay back my loans, while supporting my family on the profits.

My business became so successful that I was pulling in over $500k per year in profits, had hired 3 employees, and was salting away a nice nest-egg in case my business faded.

Now my questions to the socialist are:

My business was built by my drive, my ingenuity, and my intelligence. So how can you justify taxing me to oblivion so that bums, welfare queens, illegal aliens, and shiftless dregs on society can profit from my successful business when they contribute nothing?

Why am I not entitled to keep the money I rightfully earned through my work and ingenuity?

More importantly: Why should I keep my business open in America when I can move it somewhere else with less taxes?

Why should I keep it open, when I can just close shop and live on the Government dole?

Tell me, Obama supporters, WHY should I keep my modestly successful business open, when Barack will take my profits and hand them out to bums?

Tell me, Barack supporters, how after The One raises my taxes, and forces me to provide heath-benefits to three employees which will cost me 10's of thousands of dollars, why I shouldn't close shop and move my family and business to a more tax-friendly country?

Since Mr. Obama says he's going raise taxes on people that make more than $250,000 per year and "spread the wealth around," shouldn't small business owners be concerned about the questions I raised?

If not, why?
