Phil Robertson on Socialism and the Economic Policy of the King

Socialism is a man-made economic ideology driven by the big idea that the masses know how to use my property, my money, and my materials better than I do.

It’s the ideology that gave birth to government-run housing, welfare, socialized medicine, and a tax system that redistributes the wealth of hardworking Americans to non-working Americans. And I suppose if we lived in a kingdom-centered society, a world in which We the People followed the directives of the King, I might be more inclined to go along with such a notion. But our society is controlled by a different kingdom that leads the people according to their desires instead of according to what’s godly. Yes, the kingdom of the evil one has established itself in America, and what’s the result? The apostle Paul might put it this way:

For, as I have often told you before and now tell you again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things. (Phil. 3:18–19)

Does that sound like a group of people you want directing your tax dollars, your property, and your economic opportunities?

No way, dude!

I’m concerned that when a government composed of ungodly bureaucrats exercises control over our wealth, they’ll spend it on ungodly policies, funding immorality. Don’t believe me?

Pay attention, Mr. and Mrs. and Ms. Taxpayer.

In 2010, President Barack Obama signed a bill making socialized healthcare available to the masses through government intervention. As is the way with all government intervention, Obamacare, as it’s come to be known, is also a vehicle for advancing a godless, immoral agenda.

How?

In the runup to the 2020 election, a group of politicians came clean about their intentions for socialized healthcare. For years, there’d been a bill on the books (my son Al tells me it’s called the Hyde Amendment) that in most instances prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for abortions. But as the 2020 electoral cycle opened, the majority of Democrat candidates shared an expanded view of a pro-choice agenda, arguing that Obamacare recipients should receive some form of abortion coverage. There was a holdout, though. Former vice president Joe Biden had previously stood by prohibiting government-funded abortions. But as he entered the race, he was criticized for his support of the Hyde Amendment. So Old Joe flipped and changed his position. The New York Times reported, “Joseph R. Biden Jr. . . . no longer supports a measure that bans federal funding for most abortions.”
