Let me get this straight. Ron Paul is receiving Social Security, but thinks it’s unconstitutional? Typically when I think something is wrong in itself or at least for me to receive, I pass on receiving it.
Why am I not surprised that Ron Paul is being a hypocrite? I’m not surprised because so many people in our federal legislature could survive without their salaries, but they sure as hell don’t say “keep that money I don’t need.” Nope, not at all. Why would you do something so foolish?
So when they are old enough to collect social security, why would the most federal government hating members of our federal legislature refuse these benefits? By the way, if you believe the federal government is unnecessary, why would they want to be a part of it?
O.k. let me make sure I understand this, Ron Paul thinks that Americans might want to opt out of Social Security to invest the money themselves. Doesn’t he remember that we had to bailout actual banks with a multitude of accountants and other financial wizards because they couldn’t wisely invest bank money? But, individuals who can barely test into College Algebra will be able to wisely invest their money to finance their retirements? I smell a bailout coming circa 2030 because 2008 was so much fun we want to revisit it!
Clearly, we are looking for clarity from storm clouds…
