Obama can't save America. And when she fails, he's not entirely at fault. Nor is Bush.
Americans, collectively, are at fault.
Americans fell for a load of heifer dung when they signed up with "Socialist InSecurity". It was a Ponzi scheme bigger than Bernie Madoff's paltry 50 billion.
It has made every participant into a pauper at law and a status criminal.
It has made every participant bankrupt, and liable for the impossible national debt (that's what "contribution" really means in FICA).
(see Ezekiel 18:13 KJV)
If you've read "Atlas Shrugged", you might recognize the parallels from the effects of the "brain strike". The stupid looters have control, and now, America and the world will face decades of suffering from an economic Depression that will make the 1930s look like a jolly picnic.
And it's all the fault of Grandma and Grandpa - the 1930's generation - who were too STUPID or GREEDY to read the law, do the math, and realize the scam.
That you can be ENTITLED to the sweat of another man, just because.
That you can use law to steal from one man to give to another.
That you can "vote" yourself charity from the public treasury, and pass the bill to your grandchildren.

The worst culprits were women.
In 1930s, when the scam was hatched, the actuarial tables listed that the average lifespan of an American male was 62 years. So the "Wizards" who wrote FICA / Social Security set the retirement age at 65. In short, the majority of the recipients were NOT going to be men, since over half of them would be DEAD before they'd reach retirement age. In 1930s, men were the 'Breadwinners' and the major portion of the workforce. They'd be the ones working and paying FICA taxes and conveniently dying off before they'd get one DIME of alleged benefits.
Which gender would benefit the most from Social Security?
Which gender would live longest?
Which gender would not have paid as much into it, if anything?
Thus no woman would oppose the scam, since she knew she was to be the one "secured" by all those strapping young men, working their lives for her benefit, and conveniently dying off.
Shame on her.
