SOCIAL SECURITY INFORMATION Informative - WE NEED TO BE HEARD - SOME INTERESTING FACTS

Review by Anonymous on 2004-09-27
SPARKS, CALIFORNIA -- Social Security Information

Some interesting facts:

When Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary,

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the Program,

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income tax each year,

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent "Trust Fund" rather than into the General operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and,

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to "put away,"

you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent "Trust" fund and put it into the General fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically-controlled House and Senate.

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA)Withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the "tie-breaking" deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the U.S.

Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive SSI Social Security payments!.......... The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!..............

Then, after doing all this lying and thieving and violation of the Original contract (FICA)..................the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!..................And the worst part about it is, uninformed citizens believe it!................Perhaps we are asking the wrong questions during this 2004 election year!................

We need to be heard!..................

If enough people read this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe good changes will evolve..................

Warning, If your political party affiliation is for the Democratic Party, DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE. YOUR EYES ARE LIABLE TO POP OUT OF YOUR HEAD!!!!

I love Bush, I was the first one in the political
chat room to say he should run for president.......John Kerry is a freak of nature.......besides being a terrorist sympathizer.......He is a communist.............He will be the first one to vote for the antichrist.

Most all of these are just blatant lies. The social security website even addresses these myths at the following link: http://www.ssa.gov/history/InternetMyths.html. Stop lying and stop blaming the democrats for everything under the sun. I am just tired of all this GOP driven misinformation. Lies about WMD, about this and everything else.

I see most of the post after Maribell's initial post have gotten off of the subject matter completely. Maribell your post was great for someone that knows nothing about politics, you need to go back and check your information out a lot better. Most of the readers are the type that go on what they hear from people at work, mom and dad, or the next door neighbor. If people would go back and really do research of the things going on in our government and showed up at the polling booths to vote, our country would be in much better condition. I will give you one example of something that is going on right now. Bush has told the people he is against stem-cell studies but the day before yesterday a company in California was given a three millon dollar grant, for what, stem-cell research. The reason I use that one thing as an example is because my neighbor and I talking just yesterday when she stated she was voting for Bush. I asked her why she made that decision, her answer was, because I don't believe in Stem-cell research and Bush has stopped it. When I showed her the article about the grant she was shocked. She is now voting for Kerry. Like she said, he's for it nnd I know that,but at least he didn't lie about it. She admitted she had done no research but was going on what people at work were saying. She took a copy of the article to work with her today.

The mess with the Social Security system is a bi-partisan mess. WHile the Dem's are equally responsible, the GOP owns a fair share of the blame as well. Reagan introduced giving Social Security disability (SSDI) to drug addicts and alcoholics. He also introduced the use of the Social Security fund to balance the books and disguise trillions of dollars of debt. Bush Sr. and Clinton both share blame for using the actual funds to pay for unrelated programs.

Bush Jr. is fulfilling the dream of the GOP, to end government funding of any retirement system or medical care. The purpose for pushing for privatization is to cause uncertainty in the system and collapse it, getting the federal government out of the retirement and healthcare funding business altogether. That the Dem's helped was just a bonus from God.

Face it, the Social Security system is finished, it's just a matter of time. Everyone wants something for nothing, expecting others to pay for it. The Baby Boomers are no different. THe did all the drugs, and then scrapped the Constitution to wage war on drugs when they were finished. They sucked the welfare system dry, and now demand that children hold down jobs to pay for their education. The spit on Viet Nam veterans returning home, but now send their own children to war for oil to power their bloated SUV's and RV's. They racked up trillions in debt, but demand that their taxes be eliminated. Screw them. Privatization is the best way to force the generation of hypocrits to pay something towards the massive debt they want future generations to pay.
