Fleming vs nestor concerned a Bulgarian kicked out of the country. Be that as it may, then if you want the government to continue taking your "contributions" forcibly with no guarantee of a payout, as opposed to taking it private, some people might argue you're an idiot.
I'd be one of them.
exactly thats the problem I have with Social Security your forced to contribute in a Government Program with no guarantee which the Federal Government doesnt have to since Social Security is formulated as a tax and is treated like any other tax and Obamacare fits in this argument too since the Individual Mandate Cheif justice John Roberts said the Individual Mandate is a tax then and there should be no contractual rights to Obamacare then and the Federal Government can reduce or eliminate those healthcare benefits at anytime regardless of what an individal has contributed. But if it was privatized then individuals would have control of the money plus you have property rights to it then and with the Federal Government in a financial mess it doesnt look promising for anybody including Obamacare.

Went back and read some earlier posts on this thread. Sheesh...am I outspoken or what?!

No wonder some get so irritated with me.

If I weren't me, even if I agreed with everything I said, after reading some of my own posts, I probably would've gotten irritated with me too.

Just wasn't too happy with my fellow countrymen for electing someone like Barack Obama and took it out on here. Now I'm beginning to think things happen for a reason and his being elected to a second term might prove this to be true by 2016.

Still, I regret the tone in some of my earlier posts.

Well, goodnight.

there is not even one country that is capitalistic anymore because you will not find a country where the Government is not involved economically some way or some how and besides where everything is privately owned.

If you really had true capitalism, even the military would be put out to bid!

That's another alternative.

Ponzi was a criminal who knew he was a criminal. I don't think SS is a criminal enterprise, is it?
SS has been sold as a fraud, in which politicians promise endless goodies that they can never provide. Just because they don't reap personal financial benefits does not mean that it is not a crime.
