Absolutely. Our government isn't capable of separating funds. When SS was running a surplus, did they set that money aside for the Baby Boomers? Nope, they spent it. Clinton used it to 'balance' the budget.

It's ok though, I'm pretty sure that freedom means you can do whatever you want, as long as you are willing to pay the penalties, I mean taxes, that go with it.
