    As stated above Social Security recipients ‘may’ receive ‘4’ times the amount paid in prior to eligibility for benifits. Nowhere do I see anything that takes into account the inflation (theft by government) factor over time. What about the fact that the government, ingeniously, placed the SS receipts into the general fund thereby being able to use this money for “everything” their little hearts desired. They knew that the actuarial tables would allow the government to have access to incredible sums of money. Now that this is no longer the case we get kicked out of bed!! Change will come through one of two ways 1. A thoughtful valid process or 2. System collapse…

    I am disabled because I was injured in the military fighting for my country. I recieve no VA benefits as I was not in combat when the final blow came, but I can barly walk now. I am 30, I am working on disability case but only plan for a short time. The time is to get the medical treatment I can not afford to fix my injury so I can return back to work. I do NOT want a lifetime of it, I would be disgusted with myself if I did. I just need a chance to fix my spinal injuries that cause increadable pain that is barly covered by a daily amount of pills that wouls kill three strong men. Some people do need this help, but there are so many that take advantage of the system. Or just because you move to America you are given money to start a business and are given medical care even though you entered this country illegally. That is the issue that needs to change. We would be able to help the Americans that needed it if we stoped giving the hard earned money of tax payers to countrys that hate us, Bring the troops out of the countrys from WWII, let Isreal take care of themselves they have their own army and government. Once a government offical leaves office their health care should no longer be free. Pay those who work for congress less money. I thought they were in it to make a change in the world, to work for the people not the dollar. Recently there was a shortage of much needed cancer killing drugs were nowhere to be found because only one plant made them because the profit margen was not there. KIDS WERE DIEING BECAUSE IT DID NOT MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO JUSTIFY MAKING THE DRUG! these are the things that would help if changed. Its not about taking money from plate one to plate two because plate two is next in line. It needs to be about helping those who need it, not because you don’t want to fight for freesom in the military or work where you can. But to help those who need it, work with them on a timeline to make the changes needed to be free form government help. For example I plan to have surgery to fix my buldging disks, spinal stenosis, fix the GI issues caused from a football sized tumor being removed from my abdomin and the seven feet of intestine from large and small. I will not be on for life, my plan is two years tops. Then back to work and back to paying back into the system.

    Ron Paul, if you are ever reading this at all, I have a question. I understand your point about entitlements such as Social Security, however I have never heard you state just exactly how you would go about salvaging it except to throw out the baby with the bath water. How would you handle all the seniors that cannot work and need assistance for food, clothing, and shelter???

    What about all the disabled?? Where would the money come from ? Should we just throw them out into the streets to beg??? Please!!…. just advise us so, that we can make an intelligent vote.

    The first thing would be to get millionaires off Social Security. I know a lady that was sick, came into millions, sitting in the bank, Medicare paying her bills. He used benfits for 2 years, died a millionaire. Just NUTS! If they paid into the system, give millionaires their money back but NO MEDICARE!

    Actually it is. A Ponzi Scheme is a system that is set up for people to make money on the top. That isn’t Social Security, That is Private Insurance.

    SS was “mandatory” Ponzi scheme when FDR created it.

    It started out being only 1.5 % wage withholding and now is almost 15%

    It was a lie in the beginning and remains one today…

    Yet Public Employees Retirement Association (PERA) is an account set up in the name of the recipient working for the Government of Union backed positions.

    Yet the Private sector workers are dumped on and nothing is set aside or guaranteed…

    Social Security is a SCAM…

    Good Luck collectiing !

    you lose me when you start dissin social security. there are even abuses allowed so dissers can say “look at the abuse”. it would not be in financial trouble if it had not been looted. you say social security will be broke in 2037 we gotta “fix” it. i paid almost 1/3 of my paycheck into SS for 30 years and you call it welfare? drop dead.

      of course its welfare because social security recipients are getting 4 times as much as they put into it. Also you should be appalled as a social security recipient that the government artificially lowers its calculated inflation rate for the country to short change the recipients who should have increase of 8.5 percent per year but instead are getting increases of 3 percent each year.

    I agree with Max…research what the man is speaking about! Bring back the qualifications to get on SS. They have been very lax!! I know one thing, we need something done. It is part of what is draining US.

    We have become the laughing stock of the world, check out the blogs from foreigners. We are – thieves, greed mongers, liars, courthungry people, arrogant…I could go on and on. We have become a disgrace to the world, we are so wrapped up in our selfish intentions it is sickening.

    For example, the other countries in the world outlawed a nicontide spray that is causing the bees to die…and yet do you think greedy American would >>>NO, because “Bayer” is the maker of the sprays. Look the plastic bottles, Canada is the one who really brought it to the media…other countries outlawed it, and yet again America continued to use it until it was hammered in the media (3 years later) to start elimiating it – while in the interium it is poisoning our children and men. Soy is another thing, all the evidence is there to promote thyroid and other medical conditions …yet good ole America continues to promote the sick products. They outlawed raw milk, raw foods…we literally are a growing sick , sick nation. Look at the teens – they look ill.

    We need a REAL change, not just politics again. Look at all of GOP, pretty much same old good ole boy politics except a few – Ron Paul is one of the few. What does it take for America to put someone in that will change things. We got change from Obama, we don’t like that, lets go the other direction with RON PAUL. He will change for the better. Do we want to be free? Or continue on with gov’t control, we do need someone with good judgement and assessment of all things. Vote Ron Paul.

    - You’re a fucking liar. On your profile you said:
    “I’m 5’6 and 130 lbs of pure muscle!”

    Now you’re saying you’re on Social Security disability. You’re a fucking liar. People do think. They think that lazy, con artists like you have been mooching off of the rest of us for far too long. People are sick and tired of paying for shitbirds like you who lie so you can sit at home and play on the internet. Your inability to work is not my responsibility and your lying isn’t helping.
