    ON TUES.  3/23/10 THE HEALTHCARE REFORMS BILLS WERE PASSED BY THE DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED CONGRESS .

    TODAY, 3/25/10 WAS A WAKENING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    IT WAS REPORTED THAT SOCIAL SECURITY PAYMENTS TO THE TREASURY WILL NOT BE SUFFICENT TO PAY BENEFITS GOING TO SOCIAL SECURITY RECIPIENTS.

    THE  SOCIAL SECURITY TRUST FUND IS OFFICIALY BROKE AND WILL DEMAND THAT THE GOVERNMENT STAR

    I think the majority of America has been rested from their apathetic sleep thanks to our current Congress and the Obama Administration.  Americans are extremely upset and angry all across this land over out of controlling spending, runaway immigration, the economy and the lack of jobs.  The Social Security Trust Fund has basically been broke ever since Lyndon Johnson signed legislation authorizing Social Security funds to be included into the general funds of the government.  All we really have is the money coming in on the short term and the promise of the government that the rest will be paid...potentially a bad debt.  Now Congress must legislate ways to keep those who have paid into the system to be legally barred or delayed from what is rightfully theirs.  In doing this they will begin the elevate the retirement age scale with rapid escalation so that it will impact a portion of the baby boomer generation either shortfalling their payments or pushing them to a full retirement age of 70.  In addition, there is talk of a "qualification process" in which due consideration would be given to weighing your assets and deciding whether you were in need of Social Security Funds.  Now, while this sound reasonable to some, it would be a crime in the private sector because it more or less represents a breach of contract on the part of the government especially in light of the fact that the individual has no opportunity to opt out of the program yet will be deprived of all or part of the funds paid into the system...extortion based on false promises.  If the money had been left there and potentially invested then there would be more than enough to cover the needs of Social Security.  We have suffered too many years of thieves in this country and now the cows are coming home.

    I think perhaps it's a question of who wakes up first, the government or the governed. In order to be successful in getting to the path it wants to be on, the government must accept that we have become a social democracy. It they want it work it, they must take a good look at socialism, where it works and why. They must also realize that there is no great idological war between capitalism and socialism, it comes down to how people in different classes treat each other.

    On the other hand "We the People" must except that the Federal Government is a run away train, with a full load, of explosives, going down hill... The people are are at the  bottom of the Hill, 2012 is just around the corner.
