SS was initially in a trust, to be used only for its defined purpose. The Johnson administration made it part of the general fund and raided it to pay for the unpopular Vietnam War. Since then, it has been a veritable "piggy bank" for dishonest, unscrupulous and corrupt politicians. Supposedly, or in theory, there are IOU's guaranteeing repayment of the literally stolen funds. SS could be salvaged if we cut foreign aid, withdrew from the UN and stopped funding the World Bank,among other wasteful squandering of taxpayer money.
We have two more unnecessary wars going on that have tapped out the American taxpayer. Maybe we should all start demanding an end to it so our money can go to something more beneficial to OUR people.

My point exactly. We are wasting our youth and treasure meddling in the Middle East. We are bogged down just as we were in Vietnam which ended inconclusively and really accomplished nothing. The story line in the Middle East is that we are trying to establish democracies to free the oppressed people of the region. Generally speaking, the societies are still medieval in structure and unprepared to govern themselves. We need to turn our attention to the US and address the waste, corruption and manipulation in our own system. The coming election will simply provide more of the same regardless of who wins.
