Some believe we must obey any government put in place in America because God orders us to. If that is true, then the American Revolution was full of sinners. They not only didn't obey their government, they revolted against it.
If our current government ordered you to kill all or some of your kids, I would hope you would be a sinner and not obey that order.
The Founders believed in natural law and that all individual rights (enumerated and unenumerated) had their origins in natural law. These laws and rights were considered to be prior to, and independent of, any government. Any attempt to deny those rights rendered the government illegitimate and deserved to be overthrown.
Socialism in any form, collectivism in any form, violates natural law and individual rights. They are illegitimate governments for America no matter how many people vote for it and deserves to be overthrown.
