Social Security is immoral, illogical, and unAmerican, for one thing. It's mathematically impossible to operate, for another.
You cannot set up a system that rewards consumption and penalizes production, and expect it to survive.
You cannot pay "benefits" to non workers taken from workers, without destroying the workers.
It's operation is so evil, that it requires everyone to volunteer, under the assumption that it was mandatory.
In short, FRAUD.
So when a politician gets up and says, "We must save Social Security for our children!", you know the truth.
He's an idiot, liar, thief, and scoundrel - as is his audience who agrees that Social Security is a sacred cow to be milked forever.
The cow is about to die, folks.
Some impossible aspects of socialism and usury
When initiated, in 1930s, there were 35 "contributors" for every recipient.
Now, there are 2 "contributors" for every recipient.
Soon, it will be 1.5 "contributors".
Once it hits 1, each "contributor" will be working half his whole life for the benefit of another. . . under threat of PUNISHMENT.
THAT IS UNAMERICAN.
SOCIALISM is slavery, and every enumerated Socialist should be ashamed - if they had half a brain and a smidgen of conscience.
The "Trust Fund" is a pile of IOUs, redeemable only by higher taxes.
(No, there's no trust nor fund... )
Current recipients are paid with current revenues - or borrowed funds.
(Just like Bernie Madoff's victims)
Even if it was based on 'investment' (at usury), it would be doubly evil and impossible to pay.
Usury is mathematically impossible in a finite money token system because the compound interest equation is exponential. The aggregate debt is far greater than the sum of all money, and can never be repaid. The outstanding obligations owed to creditors and account holders is a magnitude larger than the total sum of available money tokens. When the "music" stops, there will not be enough "chairs" for everyone.
The national debt, in excess of ten trillion (and soon to be over 11 trillion) is unpayable with lawful money (gold / silver). And you can't pay it with Federal Reserve Notes, because they're worthless IOUs, too. They're borrowed, at usury, into existence. They cannot pay debt, because they are debt. (minus plus minus is more minus)
But thanks to the over 300 million "contributors" pledged as human resources on that abominable debt, bankers will extend credit, at usury, to the Congress.
