Mounting evidence of going "Galt"

I couldn't agree more. The problem is, it couldn't be more depressing:
With the threat of this administration and congress, what is the possible motivation for anyone with ideas and capital to invest their time, talent and money into a risky endeavor? There appears to be none. In fact there appear to be powerful incentives not to invest any time and treasure -- thus an economy with almost zero creative inertia.

For Obama voters, almost zero creative inertia means almost no one is having bright ideas, starting businesses based on them and hiring employees to help share the dream.
Sadly this Administration just doesn't get it. This is exactly why the economy isn't recovering. As a small business owner I would love to make some changes, maybe even hire someone, but with all the unknown variables there is no way that is going to happen. This Administration is not only sucking the life out of me, but with all the turmoil, mounting deficits with no end in sight and a clear desire to grab as much power as possible with little concern for what America wants-well, I and millions of other small business owners will maintain the status quo. I would never give the government the satisfaction of taking what I have worked so hard to achieve. I'll stop doing it before that will happen.
