No, this is our money that we entrusted to the government as a retirement benefit.
No, I "entrusted" my money to my IRA and even my bank. I have some personal recourse and control. I can even take them to court if I am cheated.
On the contrary, our Social Security money was not "entrusted". It was taxed from you at the point of a gun and then squandered by the same crooks to buy votes. Naturally, the crooks gave you all sorts of promises to keep you quiet, which they broke when it suited their purposes. You have no recourse and no control over this money. You can't take them to court to get it. You are at their total mercy. It is gone. Al Gore's Lock Box has long been emptied.
In other words, we were suckered and then screwed. It was done with the sure knowledge of said crooks and they spent it on themselves and for their friends - the moochers and looters.
Now these same crooks want us to "trust" them they won't take our guns next. Fat chance.
