You cannot have freedom without economic freedom.
Today, the US Govt is a big ATM machine. Over 70% of all expenditures are on Entitlements.
People want "their check." That goes for many Republicans as well.
Don't believe me? Try debating entitlements here for a few hours and watch the glass fly.
I haven't found that to be the case. I'm sick to death of this crap. I'm 52 and in my working life, between myself and my employer over $350,000 has been confiscated for th bloody ponzi scheme known as "social Security".
I'd gladly accept this deal right now: They can keep every $#@%^&* penny. I don't want a cent back. All I ask in return is to not have any more of my income confiscated over the remaining of my working life.
That's how desparate it is, and how little faith I have that I'll get more than a pittance anyway - or that what I get will be WORTH more than a pittance by the time inflation really starts to take hold.
