Brown official: You’re our slave

Fight the powerJan. 26, 2013

If you listen closely, sometimes government officials tell you what they really think of you. Concerning the controversy over whether golfer Phil Mickelson might leave California because of the massive Proposition 30 tax increase, Gov. Jerry Brown’s press secretary, Gil Duran, said: “We have to look beyond our personal interests to where we are going as a society.”

Translation: As a taxpayer, you’re the slave of government.

“look beyond our personal interests” means government orders, you obey.

“where we are going” means where your master, government, orders you to go as a slave.

“as a society” means you have no freedom, but are just a slave on the Big Government Plantation, where “society” takes care of all your needs, makes sure you don’t hurt yourself or somebody else and properly distributes all the fruits of your labor.

You really don’t have any money, because all your money belongs to government. They just dole it out to you. Everybody, essentially, is given EBT cards by government. Those on welfare get EBT cards they use, paid for by the rest of us.

But the rest of us — the taxpayers — are doled back a little, EBT-card fashion, from our own money, the rest of which is enjoyed you our masters. That amount is decided by “society” — that is, by government masters like Brown and Duran.

And of course, those who run the “society” get massive compensation at our expense.
