Social (In)Security

Updated on April 14, 2022

January 1st 2011 marked the date when Baby-boomers turned 65 and started drawing on social security. 7000 baby boomers are drawing on social security each and every day. The major news media have started pounding the proverbially drum regarding the demise of social security benefits. Is this news to you? We have been hearing how Social Security will be depleted for years. Now, the day has come when we are in the red, when there will be more money paid out of social security then paid in. This should come as no surprise to anyone. We have a huge elderly population (mostly due to the abortion holocaust) and we have no jobs. As far as I know 1 plus 1 still equals 2.

What is it they say we need to do to remedy the situation? The elite always provide only two solutions; more taxation or decreased benefits. In other words more theft!

This is unacceptable. I don't know about you but I've paid into Social Security my entire life, not because I wanted to but because I was forced to. When someone forces you to pay for something and you receive no benefit ..that my dear is called stealing. Should we just sit down for another pilfering, another raping of the American People. This is our money they are stealing!

So, what solution could we come up with instead of the tired old, worn out solution of people who probably have Harvard degrees and thousands of dollars in research money? First of all this is our money, real money that the government took from us and gave to others, money that resulted from our labor and toil unlike the fake printed pieces of paper the Fed prints up day after day. We should demand it back. We should demand that they stop funding both illegal wars and the unprofitable drug war and use that money to fund Social Security!

Do you think you will be able to rely on Social Security when you need it?

See results

According to cost of we have spent almost 1 Trillion dollars since 2001 for wars alone. This doesn't even account for all the money we've spent in the drug wars. If they used this money there would be more than enough money to fund social security and a few other needed services. In the meantime, every single politician that allowed for these illegal wars should be voted out of office, all salaries halved in Congress and no more outrageous health care benefits. The other thing we need to do is to encourage jobs. I could write another hub on that subject. But to be succinct I will just mention that the best way to encourage jobs is to get the government out of the way. Right now, in order to start a new business you have to go through so many bureaucratic hoops that it's ridiculous. It's easier to start a business in Hong Kong than in America. The best way to encourage employment is for the government to get out of the way, that's how we became prosperous in the first place and that's how we can regain our prosperity.

I am not optimistic, however.

Unfortunately, since we have criminals who run our government, they will do what benefits them and we will continue to decline. Nevertheless, I hope that the next time you see some government hack telling you what must be done to remedy a crisis that THEY created that you will think twice or maybe more. Just because someone with a Harvard degree tells you something doesn't mean it's true or he's right, just because they come up with a solution doesn't mean it's the best or only solution, we must start thinking for ourselves. In fact, I am hoping it will become a habit.
