Purpose of Government

What is the purpose of government? There is a big push today by liberals to completely redefine the purpose of government into being the sugar daddy for all. Actually, liberals have been at this agenda for decades, but with the most radical leftist we have ever had in the White House in Barack Obama and the modern incantation of Socialism in the stunningly popular message of entitlement and jealousy preached by Bernie Sanders, we have moved quite far away from what the founders of our country had intended.

More than 50 years ago, President John F. Kennedy who was a Democrat said in an impassioned speech, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” But what liberal preaches that today? Is there anyone in the Democratic party that actually believes and holds to this sentiment in this day and age?

Today's government has become the ultimate coercive monopoly backed up by guns and yet leftist progressives never have a problem with that. They can't even begin to see how oppressive their own government has become even with their leftist ideals just finally getting a foothold.

Seriously though, what has government ever created? What ideas have they invented? What products have they produced? What value does government create? They create nothing. Most liberal politicians like Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama spend their entire lives trying to scheme ways to use the state to steal from producers and practice "charity" with other people's money. And then like Obama has done his entire presidency, they attack the very groups of people who create value so they can buy votes from envious and gullible people looking for politicians to fix their lives and completely remove personal responsibility.

So what is the role of government? Let's look at one of our founding documents.

"WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government."

Think of that as you watch the video below and we take apart the first part of that statement:
