Jesus admonished us to help the poor, saying they would always be with us. The thought being that no matter what a nation does to equalize wealth it goes counter to God’s natural law. Everyone is not guaranteed the ability to own a home, have health insurance or whatever else our government decides should be funded by those who have more. The government will end up robbing its citizens to pay for what is not affordable. Socialism is not sustainable because fewer and fewer people and families will be able to survive economically at a high enough level to provide for those who are unwilling. The whole system will collapse into its own waste of misallocated resources and broken dreams.
An economics professor once stated that he had never failed a single student before, but he had failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that President Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan.” All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade, so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.
