    The reason the Social Security fund is broke is because the money has been spent on the military. Accordingly, let us who are working opt out of social security and get a credit against our income taxes for all future years for the amount we've paid into the system. Then let's tax the military industry the cost of the people on social security today. Let's suck the military dry, that sucked us dry.

    Yes, it always works this way. The super-rich tell all of us that they're going to take our money and give it to the poor. Then they collect it and give most of it to themselves.

    His last statement is the most important and sums up this message perfectly "Your money has never been safe in the government's hands, and it NEVER WILL BE"! nothing more needs to be said.

    Its so sad that Dr. No is now reporting what could have been totally avoided.
    If only the gov were used to help people... it is clear the tyrants intend to burn and loot then wreck the Ship on purpose.
    The inbred 'rulers' are notorious for doing this all throughout recorded history.
    There's nothing new here under the Sun.

    I have an idea about how to get rid of Social Security immediately: stop payments immediately. Inform the slaves they are free and that they have to take care of their own grandparents OR a senior in their neighborhood. What's that you say? That wouldn't work? I suggest you think that through.

    Its not the individual that is at fault in caring for this nations aging population, its rests squarely with our gov't and groups that have created the view that it is the gov'ts responsibility to do so. For decades we've been indoctrinated to believe that the gov't is our god all the while being encouraged to turn away from religion and rely on gov't for all our needs. Well, time to wake up and take responsibility not only for ourselves but all of our family, gov't is the problem not the cure.

    My thoughts on how to get rid of Social Security is a draw down program, where those who are 50 and older will receive Full Benefits until they pass away.
    Those who are between the ages of 35 to 49 will receive partial benefits, depending on how much they have put into the system. Those who are just starting out in the job market to age 34 will not pay into the system and would be encouraged to open their own savings account. To pay for those who are currently in the system, it will be paid

    SS is an example of why feminism and big liberal gov go hand in hand. Everyone who works pays in. Up until now, has always been men that worked but it is women who receive the spousal benefits, while living an extra 5 years, and on average, when working, retiring at a younger age. Kill feminism and victomology and the rest will fall into place. Entitlement programs, that favor women, as they all do, are engrained in big gov, along with the and hatred of men. Look at your pres and vp!

    Rumsfeld admitted to $2.3 trillion missing on September 10, 2001 (the day before 9/11)

    So if we need cuts in spending, lets start with the D.O.D who waste more money than SS will ever pay out.

    People who pay and paid in to SS deserve it people who haven't don't, if we start with that premise it wouldn't be a problem. The problem is people who have never paid in to the system get SS or SSI stop the welfare part of SS and it would solve the money part.

    I can remember back around 1990 making around 75k a year and thinking taxes,SS and medicare suck ass but figured at least I'll get the SS when I retire. Cut the defense budget, Rumsfeld said D.O.D lost 8 billion they have to much money.

    Look at your pay check since Regan we not only pay for social security for the older generation but also pay for our own we pay double. Social security gets robbed every year by congress, and as much as I agree with Ron Paul I have to disagree about social security it's not an entitlement, you and I pay for it and like I said since Regan we pay twice as much, so when the time comes I want my money. Stop taking from the people and start with cutting the military and their private crook friends.

    i support national health care, but am against social security.
    social security needs to give back every LIVING person's $ that has been removed, then shut the social security system down permanently.

    Ron Paul needs to draw light to the detention and torture of Bradley Manning and help to create the public attention it deserves for not only Mr. Manning, but for what his illegal detention (without due process) means to the rest of Americans.

    NO MEANS TESTING, if have to cut it, cut it, but no more welfare bs. Stop penalizing success! Why should a guy save if he known’s whatever he saves not buying drugs and prostitutes will just be taken away from him in SS benefits. Cut SS and tell people save or be at the mercy of CONDITIONAL charity when old, otherwise even responsible people will also be screwed for getting old as the entire ship goes down.

    @MrGdeo...........CJLopez21 is right, on top of what he says, you have Insurance companies donating top of the line radar equipment to police. The insurance companies know if you get a second ticket they can raise your insurance. Many police make 6 figure incomes from all the over time. The ticket racket (or shake down money) provides lots of revenue.

    All the weapons the US sells, who do you think gets all that? While they tax the citizens

    How about all the money gained from selling Visa application to foreigners? While they tax the citizens

    Or Import duties? How about all the interest the Fed has made from financing foreign banks and countries, America doesn't see any of this wealth.

    Much of the Fed income, just gets diverted to other countries anyway, most recently Haiti, you see the Fed doesn't want you to pay down the debt, The interest alone has made them wealthy. In reality, they love that America is in debt, they have us right where they want us. Many don't even know that these owners of the Fed aren't even American citizens or that the Fed (private bank) doesn't pay taxes itself. These bankers grandfathered it in so that they wouldn't have too.

    In reality, there needs to be a class action lawsuit against the Fed as they have devalued everyones wealth and need to be held accountable.

    Social security is not welfare. It is a user funded government guarenteed retirement fund. True you might be paying for a person that is retired while you are working, with the knowlege that if you live long enough or get hurt you to will get benifits as others pay in with same regard. Government spends what it wants when it wants for what it wants. If they do not have the funds they borrow or print it. Government is only one that can make a commitment like this.Limited printing saves interest.

    Only 64% goes to retired workers the rest goes to disability ,spousal survivor benefits etc. Maybe it should all go to our retirement program. That would help out the problem.

    Foreigners/ legally/illegally in this country SHOULD NOT be allowed to receive SOCIAL SECURITY as they have not invested time or money into the system! WE AMERICANS have... I think that this shift/ change in the SOC SEC system would benefit ALL AGING AMERICANS... WE MUST TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN and ensure that elderly AMERICANS are not going hungry and without in their OLD AGE! If we do NOT change this system then we not only fail ALL ELDERLY AMERICANS NOW BUT FAIL OURSELVES IN OUR OLD AGE!

    SSI is foreign aid for pharmaceutical companies. If not for that, they probably euthanize us at 65 as unmarketable.
