 Ron Paul only acknowledged a truism; the government is headed for bankruptcy and medicare, ss, etc. will be lost---that Cenk distorted to claim RP wanted to defund SS etc.  His point that the military should be drastically reduced BEFORE social programs are reduced (i.e., in opposition to the Republican plan) has apparently escaped the casual observer.

What an eye opener.... Americans can not even read the English language. I guess a paragraph is too long to expect them to pay attention. Hence the main reason we have the social security abomination in the first place.

 Those of us that can read saw the word "transition"  and know what it means. :-)

With SS behind us we can move on to real retirement plans perhaps like the one in Gavleston Co. TX that opted out of SS and as a result they get 300% more on retirement on average than if they paid into SS.

Sadly there is no obligation to pay out  Social Security and there is no fund. But you and other guberment educated voters thought this was all conspiracy theory and funny .... that is until the hen came home to roost.

I have know these facts for over 40 years. Since I was 14 or so.  Why did it take you so long to figure out the scam?  The fluoride in the water? (Oh I forgot that is a conspiracy theory also.)  

Anyhew I am 100% dependent on social security for my income and what I said is still the truth.

Oh yeah?? Ronnie, old buddy, you planning to give up the welfare-for-life plan you're on as a US Representative?  Go ahead and do that long before you mess with my entitlements that I paid for and people like you stole.
