Plus the fact when mailing out SS checks, the Gub'mint ain't giving anyone anything the person didn't pay in first. It is total confiscatory money confiscated from the workers' pay checks.
Are you also commie? or natural born stupid?
I guess you should have stood by your convictions years ago and sought out self employment.

I believe FDR had socialistic leanings,I believe he wrote the UN magna carter,which is very socialistic....The folks at the time didn't want the Government to inact SS,because it was socialistic..Even the income tax confiscation,was to end after the war,it was inacted to pay for the war during ww2.But the folks didn't raise hell,and the Government injoyed the money to pay for it's expansion.But it's a law not by the people,but by the Govenment upon us,like Obamalyingcare is now.All bills are to be passed by CONGRESSand this bill wasn't!!...We are a two party system,and Obama has said he dislikes that,and so far his actions are proving just that!!!.......Remember the Joe the plumber incident,when Obama proudly displyed his socialistic intent before our eye's........income redistribution,taking from the hard workers,and giving it to the LAZY!!...And all that does is create more lazies living off those who want to WORK,and not depend on the CRUMBS that fall off the DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY'S table......Are you stupid ,or just a kool aid drinker?

We need look no further than the simple fact that we've been engaged in wars that we can't afford...If not for these billions and billions of dollars spent on unnecessary (and possibly unconstitutional war) we may not be in the economic predicament that we are in .... Period.

His policies are socialistic,taking wealth from the "RICH,AND REDISTRIBUTION" to the poor.
Obama isn't taking anything from the rich. In fact, he's GIVING them 70 billion a month buying back their failing mortgage backed securities. That's more than welfare and food stamps combined.

The real people he's stealing from is the middle class. He's stealing from them by killing their opportunities... by turning full time jobs into part time jobs. Obamacare only penalizez the middle class. The rich don't care... they can pay for their medical out of pocket if they need to. It's the middle class that are being hurt by higher premiums.

All politicians are for the rich. The difference is that the right wants the wealth to be in the hands of the (relatively) many whereas the left wants it to be in the hands of the (relatively) few. Reason being that a relatively few really rich people (or corporations) are easier to control than a lot of less rich people (or companies). The poor are simply tools to the left, a way to control the wealth that is in the hands of others. And hey, if they can turn some of the middle class into more poor people, it's all that much more control.

Well said.

I would contest that all the politicians are for are the rich. I tend to believe they're only out for themselves: power. The more conflict a politician can be involved in, or create, the greater the opportunity. But yes, in general, the right wants the money left free to be earned and distributed via free market; the left wants money controlled. Those without large sums of wealth are left are pawns in the game. But then again, I'm a sarcastic questioning soul.
