Top Obama Advisor Explains the Purpose of Government

The more traditional among us believe that the purpose of government is to secure our property rights, ensure public order, and defend the nation from foreign incursion. But Valerie Jarrett — possible lead programmer of President Zero’s teleprompter — takes a more progressive view. Here she tells an ethnically homogeneous audience that the purpose of government is to “give people a livelihood.” This is to be accomplished by forcing those who produce wealth and haven’t yet been bled out of business to cough up their ever-increasing “fair share”:

In short, the purpose of government is not to secure our property rights, but to violate them systematically in order to enslave some on behalf of others.

    Maybe the government should also be wiping our bottoms after we go to the bathroom, because that is important too./sarc

    Income redistribution outreach efforts are essential if we are to promote an equitable society.

    Extreme bourgeois teabaggers can bemoan socio-economic fairness for the proletariat all they like, but if our communities are to sustain restorative social justice and repair disproportionate inequities, then we must progress towards the establishment of dynamic oversight programs that will empower our diverse multicultural minorities, who have been disenfranchised and effect change in order to eliminate their disparities, with solidarity.

    The hatemongering misogynist fascists of the Tea Party who spread their dangerous ideology of imperialistic colonialism and crony capitalism with their extremist vitriolic venom should not be allowed to halt the organization and mobilization of a renewable and transformative collective, collaborative, cooperative, coalition.

    You should always see this video when ValJar is mentioned ’cause it ‘splains a lot:

    ValJar was class of ’74 at the prestigious prep school, Northfield Mount Hermon School, up the road from me in WMass. That’s were she learned her love of the prols from the poor, white janitors and cleaning ladies.

    The bitch in the clip has her countries ALL mixed up. She’s thinking Cuba, North Korea, China… Lybia – she has all the brains of Obama and Sheila Jackson Lee combined, huh?

  • TonyD95B

    “….the purpose of government is to “give people a livelihood.””

    So what you’re saying, Val, is that I’ve been a misguided chump for devoting a large portion of my life (and a lot of personal capital) to the pursuit of learning so that I could provide my own “livelihood”.

    Silly me – I should have just waited for the Gub’ment to “give” me a “livelihood”.

    Thanks for clearing that up……

    Simpletons, wanting someone to run their lives for them.

    Nobody apparently explained that “life ain’t fair.” Guys like Steve Jobs will always be more creative than you, able to invent things that make our lives better. As a result, Steve will receive, and deserves, more money than you will ever have. Michale Jordan will always be more talented than you and people will pay more money to see him play basketball than you.

    Government can never make you more creative or more talented, and apparently public schools can’t make you smarter, either.

    The basic tenets behind socio-economic fairness are false, always have been false and always will be false.

  • Louisiana Steve

    What the heck is a progressive anyway??? Why don’t they tell us where all this progression is taking the country? …and why, just why, are they progressing away from the Constitution? Most of all, I want to know what qualifies them to tell us what’s best for this country after 250 years of success.

    One more time, it falls to me to point out that your entire premise is factually incorrect. You do that a lot around here. I’m betting that’s why moonbattery tried (and failed, in the cute way non-tech people try such things) to ban me. Guess “reality” popping up to say hi from time to time gets you all bothered…

    So… lets start at the start: your premise is that somehow we are “forcing those who produce wealth and haven’t yet been bled out of business to cough up their ever-increasing “fair share” “.

    Reality: Taxes are LOWER, for EVERYONE, than they have been before. Under Clinton, and under Reagan, in fact in all of US history… taxes were higher. In further fact, if you were to go back and look at marginal tax rates, this, right now, represents among the LOWEST they have ever been.

    Making your entire premise ignorant at best, downright dangerously obtuse at worst.

    I assume you will be falling all over yourselves to apologize for believing this stupid dreck, and will take steps to educate yourselves before you say something else completely incorrect.

    Whine whine whine…. but never about anything real. Always feinting at shadows trying to find a bogeyman that you can handle. But turns out that reality just doesn’t agree with your poorly constructed worldview.

    And we laugh at you… but worry, as well. You know nothing, believe whatever your programmers tell you to believe, and don’t bother to think about the factual accuracy of the statements presented to you.

    Aren’t you ashamed of yourselves???

    The true meaning of Obama/Jarrett “purpose of government”:

    Remember these names and firms tied to the Obama administration:

    Even Nancy Pelosi, along with her boss, Barack Obama are getting into the action on taxpayers money:

  • KHarn

    The purpose of the American federal government is enumerated in the US CONSTITUTION. RU and his “heros” are too stupid to read it.

    By the way, the preamble says “to PROMOTE the general welfare”, not to PROVIDE it. And there is not one word about social, pysical, or ecconomic “equality” anywhere in the Constitution.

  • Coldwarrior57

    Amen KHarn. I can PROMOTE anything. And it doesn’t cost me a thing. If I have to provide then it’s going to cost money. The problem is these jerk offs keep getting reelected.

    1. Your response did not answer the premise. The President himself has said he wants millionaires and billionaires to “pay a little more”. He has also said he wants corporations to pay “their fair share”. The premise stands.

    2. Regarding corporate earnings, by the time that income has been repatriated to me the individual investor, the effective income tax rate on that income has reached a level greater than 60%. I’ve been doing my damnedest my entire life to save and earn so that when the day comes that I’m no longer able to work I’ll still be able to afford to house and feed myself. Taxing my income at greater than 60% even if it comes from investing in a corporation is highway robbery. You leftist thieves who believe I owe a little more most likely have greater income than I.

    3. Taxes are NOT lower for everyone. I’ve seen taxes rise on tobacco, liquor, motor fuel and tanning salons. As Federal Mandates to States have increased, State taxation of my income has increased. As the Federal Government continues to print money at a rate never before seen, the value of my cash decreases proportionally. This hidden tax will probably be the most devastating one of all. So no, taxes are NOT lower for anyone. They are higher for me.

    4. The full effects of the pending Federal Health Mandate have not yet gone into effect. I’ve seen the cost of my health care insurance rise in response to new mandates of the Federal Government placed upon all health care insurance policies. One more tax.

    You have some talking points. You’ve done your best to use them. They don’t stand up to reality.
