    I bet Ron Paul is find with everyone opting out of the Whole entire State, but doesn't want to admit it because Republicans will kick him out of the Party and Yell at him calling him a Commie Anarchist.

      Ron Paul would prefer STATE level governance, with very very limited FEDERAL governance.

      It would be ironic if they call him a communist for NOT wanting centralised socialist control.

    I think the shit will hit the fan if they try to employ means testing for Social Security. Or raise the retirement age. It will be more than angry visits to congressmen. Congress blew the money (instead of saving/investing it) like they do with all the money they take from us, so now they want to change the rules. This will get ugly.

    Social security is a vast Ponzi scheme. Hell, even Ponzi didn't coerce people into giving him their money. This is ourtright theft.

    If SS is a lie / scam then it's time to put all the LIES / SCAMS on the table.
    Then the real work can start to fix a fraudulent system.

    I like that attitude on social security, generations of my family paid into this MORE than we have received, and Paul wants to give me a tough shit sucker we spent the money and we aint putting it back. The GOP spent it, and the democrats watched em do it. Get real PAUL. Certain obligations need met, punk.

    do the people who oppose any decrease in government spending NOT see the over-sized elephant in the room? cut the spending, live with the losses and give government the finger the next time they promise you something and then try to take your money, because they obviously don't know what they're doing.

    screw the seniors, they're the ones who have voted for these crooked politicians over the last 40 yeras that have raided the trust fund down to $0. They get what they voted for. I pay into it and will not get anything out of it and that is theft.

    all that stuff is paid for through various other taxes. guess how much of our federal income taxes goes to services we'd expect from govt? pretty much zero. property taxes have paid for our public schools. various taxes such as the gasoline tax when you fill up your car, the gasoline tax has paid for our highways.

    So, I think the government should cut each of us a check for all of the money we've put in already and call it good. I'm going to be so pissed if we don't get the money back that they put into social security. Heck, I'm just pissed at how they waste our money on these wars!

    Social Security is pretty much a Ponzi scheme now. :(

    I'll probably never see a penny of it when I get old.

    If people had invested their social security in private investments the recent financial crisis would have wiped that saving out of existence. Social Security has provided a safety net to millions of Americans, Young and Old for decades. We pay into SS like an insurance policy so that when we get old & are no longer able to work, we can draw on that policy. Some people pay into SS die & never collect a dime, whereas children of those deceased get SS benefits. SS is not perfect but it does work.

    People work to earn money, this money is then taken away in the form of tax and spent to make other people work. Money is simply a medium of control. The materialism portrayed in the media through music videos and advertisements perpetuate our worship of money and thus makes us more prone to control. Money should not be manipulated. To sell money and buy money (interest) is creating units of work without actual work being done.

    I'm not sure how original this thought is but, I've come to the conclusion the media elites who started the insane paranoia against the tea-parties was not so much to criticize tea-partiers as it was to stop Ron Paul without openly attacking Ron Paul...In other words: how could they with credibility attack one of the most well respected statesmen in Washington and remain credible? Instead attack the group that would lead him to have greater influence. Very clever...except that it didn't work.
