As Dobagoh said, the recipients of social security have a right to the money since they've paid into it their entire lives. Sure, I think the program itself sucks, but that can't be helped as it wouldn't be right to completely deny them the benefits that they're entitled to. The fairest way to alter social security would be to slowly phase in changes now so people don't get screwed out of the money they're owed.

The problem we're facing is that social security is ultimately a ponzi scheme that relies on employment growth to outstrip retiree growth to remain viable. Every ponzi scheme eventually collapses, and ours is slowing starting to do so for the reasons i mentioned above.

I should convert to Amishism so I don't have to pay it.

Do you guys think it would be amiss if I moved to Pennsylvania, "became Amish" and gg'd the SSA?

We should nuke DC and re-boot the government.

Get it back to a balanced, non-corporate setting.

Fact: Obama has written 13 executive orders his first time, 12 more than any other president
Fact: 5 of those orders were direct violation of congressional law and consitutional rights, but his "brothers" he put into the supreme court refused to charge him
Fact: Nothing stops obama from writting an executive order to nullify the constitution and make him supreme ruler
Fact: one of his orders superceded congressional ruling of distribution of assets during a backruptcy causing millions of people to lose their retirement during the GM bailout. He saved 3 million jobs to ruin 6 million retirements.
Fact: Romney wasn't a great choice
Fact: This video is 100% true: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bAqdSNuuHI
