I disagree with this assessment. The USA is suppose to be the land of opportunity for all who put forth the effort to be successful. Taking from the rich to give to the poor was tried in 1917 by the Bolshvicks and it did not work for Russia and it will not work for America. If fair share is what this administration wants, then overhaul the tax code for everyone.
As for Obamacare, regarding false teachers ....that was pretty much done under false pretensions... as this legislation was passed without any of the written documents read fully.. and now it is coming to light just how expensive and unequal this bill will become.
There is secularism everywhere and the government is not immuned. However, I believe that there are christian men and women who have a talent and a passion to try to get as much done in our government that would be fair and equiable for all mankind.
Both parties could use a good "housecleaning" and an immediate return the morality
What does it mean to take from the rich to give to the poor? You mean using a part of our income tax, that only some of the rich pay, but all middle class people indeed pay, and instead of using all of the tax money to kill others, in these never ending futile wars, that we use it to care for the poor? Is this what you mean?
Many conservative minded people are fine and dandy, and even desireous of taxes being used to wage war, but they don't like tax money being used to care for human beings who are poor. They don't mind financing the killing of others, but greatly object to helping suffering human beings. And they then use the argument of the murderous history of socialism, communism as an example of taking from the rich to give to the poor.
Instead, why don't they use the story that comes from Acts, in the NT, when the people waiting for Pentacost, the well do do, sold their possessions, and gave their entire wealth to the apostles to redistribute it to that vast group of humanity, to each according to his need. Now, what these people did looks like some sort of socialism, but we must not forget that the inspiration to do this came from God. If you will also recall, when one man and wife got selfish and kept some back for themselves, a little pile, God struck both dead, first the husband, then the wife.
So the conservative minded brothers need to consider their own scripture and think about this a bit more, perhaps?
