This is what you should be looking at very hard, and no matter where you stand on the Abolition of these programs, you should take a few minutes to reflect on what kind of Society this creates.

I firmly believe that the Abolition of these programs creates a very dangerous society, with desperate people, taking desperate measures to survive. I don't live in a gated community with armed guards on duty, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Paul Ryan is a Multi-Millionaire and so is Mitt Romney. Paul Ryan's wife just inherited 5 Million Dollars.

There can be no doubt that these people fully intend to Abolish; Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment Insurance, Labor Laws(including the 40 hour work week, Holiday & Overtime Pay, Child Labor Laws, the Minimum Wage) and All other Social Safety Net Programs. There is clear and convincing Evidence that the Romney/Ryan Ticket intends to accomplish all of these abolition goals.

David Koch, one of the Koch Brothers ran on the Libertarian Party Ticket in 1980.

Koch Strongly advocated the Abolition of Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance.

The Koch Brothers Founded the Libertarian Party and served on the Board of the Libertarian Party.

The Koch Brothers Founded and Funded several of the Major Tea Parties.

The Koch Brothers are Supporting Romney and Ryan. They have been Bankrolling Paul Ryan for years.

Scroll down to Political Career in this Wikopedia Link. There is much more evidence to follow.

Political career

Koch was the Libertarian Party's vice-presidential candidate in the 1980 presidential election, sharing the party ticket with presidential candidate Ed Clark. The Clark–Koch ticket promising to abolish Social Security, the Federal Reserve Board, welfare, minimum-wage laws, corporate taxes, all price supports and subsidies for agriculture and business, and U.S. Federal agencies including the SEC, EPA, ICC, FTC, OSHA, FBI, CIA, and DOE.[2][12] The ticket received 921,128 votes, 1.06% of the total nationwide vote,[13] the Libertarian Party national ticket's best showing to date.[14] The Koch brothers were proud of what they had accomplished.“Compared to what [the Libertarians had] gotten before,” Charles said,“and where we were as a movement or as a political/ideological point of view, that was pretty remarkable, to get 1 percent of the vote.”[15]

After the bid, according to journalist Brian Doherty's Radicals for Capitalism, Koch viewed politicians as "actors playing out a script".[2]
[16]

__________
David Koch and Clark recieved 1% of the Vote, now where have I heard 1% before? Oh Yes, those are the wealthiest people in the USA. They don't NEED Social Security, Medicare, or Unemployment Insurance.
Paul Ryan was alreay a Multi-Millionaire when his wife inherited $5 Million Dollars a few months back.

Look Out Farmer John, they are coming after your farm subsidies too.
The Republican House of Representatives Put off bringing up the Farm Bill Until AFTER the Election.
I wonder why????
Did you notice that David Koch said he wants to Abolish Agricultural Subsidies, and Crop Price Supports?

The GOP has said there will be No discussion and no debates on the Farm Bill until AFTER the Election. The GOP KNOWS that the Tea Party Congressmen are going to pitch a fit to Defund and get rid of the Farm Bill. They don't want the farmers to get upset Before the Election.

This is not a game where you choose sides and root for the home team, this election will have severe consequences for Millions of Americans if Romney & Ryan get elected.

Republican President Dwight Eisenhower followed what he called the "Middle Way." Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commanding General of all Allied Forces in Europe in WW2, before he was President. Looks like the GOP would be Proud of him, but NO they aren't.

Search; Eisenhower set tax rate on those who make over a million dollars a year at 92%. I think maybe that is one reason they didn't like Ike, Tee Hee.
Of course they didn't pay that much because they enjoyed the same tax loopholes they have today.

I always wondered WHY Republicans NEVER mention Republican President Eisenhower, so I decided to take a look at Eisenhower. Lo and behold, I found out the GOP Hates Ike, and the feeling was mutual. Eisenhower Hated Republican Conservatives and DESPISED Right Wing Republicans.
Imagine That!

Republican President Eisenhower wrote this letter in 1954.
Eisenhower did NOT like Republican Conservatives and Eisenhower despised Republican Right Wingers.
Dwight D. Eisenhower warned that these people would destroy the Republican Party if they had their way and tried to Abolish Social Security and Unemployment Insurance under the Republican Party Banner.

Eisenhower is speaking about HL Hunt of Hunt Foods, and the Big Oil Koch Brother's Family, along with other Billionaires in the Third Paragraph.

Eisenhower calls them "Stupid" for trying to get rid of Social Security and Unemployment Insurance.
Eisenhower said the Republican Party would wind up in the dust bin of history if the GOP let these people try to get rid of Social Security and Unemployment Insurance under the Republican banner. Eisenhower called them a "negligible splinter group."

Ike would be astounded to see how they have grown in numbers and power since his day. Eisenhower called himself a Moderate Progressive Republican, and Ike fought to make the Republican Party a Party of Moderate Progressives.

Fred Koch was a Founding Member of the John Birch Society. Fred Koch is the Father of the Multi-Billionaire Koch Brothers. Fred Koch also served on the Board of the John Birch Society.
Fred Koch and several other Billionaires poured $ Millions of Dollars into the John Birch Society every year, for decades.

John Birch Society Members have joined the Republican Tea Party in droves.
These John Birch Society Members who hold dual memberships in both the John Birch Society and the Tea Party, are the most fanatical members of the Tea Party. If you run into them on the internet they will deny and lie about everything. I have not run into one yet, that was honest enough to say what he truly believed in. They all seem to believe the end justifies the means. They constantly use the word "Socialist" as an
epithet.

The John Birchers see a Communist behind every tree and bush, and they never met a Conspiracy Theory, that they didn't like.

The John Birch Society almost went under back in the late 1950's and 1960's when they lost numerous Defamation Lawsuits filed by prominent Americans that the John Birch Society wrongly identified as Communists.

Well, now they are back in force.
Did anyone ever ask Florida Tea Party Congressman Allen West if he belongs to the John Birch Society? He sees Communists everywhere.

The John Birch Society wants the entire Franklin D. Roosevelt "New Deal" Programs, Labor Laws, and Policies Repealed.

The John Birch Society calls all of the "New Deal" Legislation, including Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance Socialism, and the John Birch Society wants these programs abolished, along with the entire Roosevelt New Deal Legislation.

The John Birch Society calls Socialism, "Creeping Communism." And anything they call Socialism must be destroyed.
The movement to Abolish Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, Medicare, and all other Social Safety Net Programs did NOT start yesterday.

This has been going on for decades. The Eisenhower Papers Prove that these people have been actively engaged in getting rid of Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, and all other Social Safety net Programs from the moment of their passage into Law.

The Koch Family has never changed their minds about Abolishing these programs, and it appears that they are closer to achieving their abolition goals than ever at any time before. The have the money, the means, the politicians, and the organizations on the ground to get it done.

The Cato Institute, The Washington Post
This is very informative.

Support for Social Security Privatization

The Cato Institute has been a long-time advocate of Social Security privatization. A chief early architect of Cato's thinking on private accounts was Peter J. Ferrara. The Washington Post's Thomas Edsall wrote in February 2005: "The emergence of the center-right phalanx backing the Social Security proposal is a major victory for the Cato Institute, a prominent libertarian group. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Cato was almost alone in its willingness to challenge the legitimacy of the existing Social Security system, a politically sacrosanct retirement program. Recognizing the wariness of other conservatives to tackle Social Security, Cato in 1983 published an article calling for privatization of the system. The article argued that companies that stand to profit from privatization --'the banks, insurance companies and other institutions that will gain'-- had to be brought into alliance. Second, the article called for initiation of 'guerrilla warfare against both the current Social Security system and the coalition that supports it.'"[16]

By early 2005, business groups such as the Business Roundtable and the National Association of Manufacturers and political groups like Progress for America were devoting millions of dollars to the campaign to get rid of the existing Social Security program. It is worth noting that the website SocialSecurity.org is run by the Cato Institute, under the heading Project on Social Security Choice.
__________

Imagine that!

The Cato Institute is devising a plan to use the Privatization of Social Security as a step toward the abolition of Social Security. This tactic avoids the inevitable nasty confrontation that a Frontal Attack on Social Security would produce.

Guess who is, and has been, donating more than half of the operating money to the Cato Institute?
Guess who serves on the Board of the Cato Institute?

Guess who Founded and Bankrolled the Cato Intitute?

Answer: The Multi-Billionaire Koch Brothers who want Social Security Abolished.

Always follow the money$. No big surprise here.

Now ain't that a Shocker? They want to Privatize and, then Abolish Social Security and Medicare.
Judging from the Long history of the Koch Family Hating Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, Medicare, and all the Roosevelt "New Deal Legislation" it all makes sense.

When you start putting the pieces of the puzzle together, you begin to see the picture.

Ths is part of the Article spoken of, in the Cato Institute Post #10 in this thread.

By Thomas B. Edsall
Washington Post Staff Writer
Sunday, February 13, 2005; Page A04

With billions of dollars at stake, a large network of influential conservative groups is mounting a high-priced campaign to help the White House win passage of legislation to partially privatize Social Security and limit class-action lawsuits.

Corporate America, the financial services industry, conservative think tanks, much of the Washington trade association community, the Republican Party and GOP lobbyists and consultants are prepared to spend $200 million or more to influence the outcome of two of the toughest legislative fights in recent memory.

Changing the way Social Security pays out benefits, as President Bush wants to do, is central to the extensive, multimillion-dollar conservative effort.(Bradley C. Bower -- AP)

Many of these same interest groups backed Bush administration tax cuts, the 2003 Medicare prescription drug legislation and proposed energy initiatives. As President Bush begins his second term, the alliance has become an institutional fixture, providing both money and manpower to further the Bush agenda and strengthen the Republican Party apparatus.

Dang! These boys have some real horsepower, and Hundreds of Billions of dollars to buy whatever they want, and whoever they want.

The Koch Brothers are on a roll with Romney/Ryan, and I don't know if it is possible to slow them down, let alone stop them,

FreedomWorks Tea Party Leader Republican Dick Armey says, "Social Security is a Corrupt Ponzi Scheme."

Guess Who Bankrolls FreedomWorks Tea Party and Dick Armey?

Yep, the Social Security Hating Koch Brothers.

Now isn't that something, the Kochtopus has tentacles in everything. And they have over 9 Million useful idiot TeaBaggers filling the streets working for, and serving the Kochtopus.

If you want to save your Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance, you are going to have to stand up and fight for it. If you don't you are going to lose these programs.

Search; Mega Donors Bankrolling the Religious Right

The Kochtopus is buying the Republican Preachers.
I can just visualize all these Republican Preachers with a Kochtopus Tentacle wrapped around their neck.

And, dang me, if it ain't totally disgraced Jack Abramoff, Ralph Reed, Grover Norquist, Choctaw Indian Gambling Casino SCANDAL Ridden, Right Reverend Ralph Reed running around with 10 million dollars of Kochtopus money in his greedy claws.

Ralph Reed rises to the top, just like pond scum.

I can picture the Koch Brothers putting a hand over their mouth and running to the bathroom and laughing till they almost pee their pants at the dumb Tea Party Members.

The rabid Tea Party Members not only work Free for the Kochtopus, but they also give Millions of Dollars a year to the Kochtopus Tea Parties. How stupid can you get??

The ONLY Ones who have any business in the Tea Party are the Millionaires who stand to profit off of beating down the wages of the working class, IF they have people working for them.
If they own stores, then they are making a Big mistake by financially beating down their own customers.

Working Class people in the Tea Party are like Chickens voting for Colonel Sanders. Their future is dim, to say the least.
