David Siegel, the Florida timeshare tycoon who threatened to fire all his employees if Obama was re-elected, went from bankruptcy to his most profitable year ever between 2008-2012, allowing him to re-start work on his 90,000 sq. ft. home. David Siegel, owner of the largest privately held time-share company in the world, says he is rebounding from the recession so well that he is restarting construction on an extravagant Florida home modelled on the Palace of Versailles outside Paris. There have been multiple instances of people who have done REALLY REALLY REALLY well as measured from 2008 until now - a good number have absolutely no thought that it is because of the governmental structure that they live in that has, in any capacity, allowed them success. It is 100% them, without the assistance of customers, employees or the system. According to them, they created their own success without any help.
