    Your Social Security


    Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to ! check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat of Republican. Facts are Facts!!!

    Our Social Security

    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 for tax purposes 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
    d! eduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

    A: The Democratic Party.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social
    Security annuities?

    A: The Democratic Party, wit h Al Gore casting the
    "tie-breaking" deciding vote as President of the
    Senate, while he was Vice President of the US

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

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

    AND MY FAVORITE:

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

    -------------- -------------------------- ------------------------------

    Then, after violating 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!
    If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
    awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
    evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully
    sure of what isn't so.

    But it's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?

    Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
    AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!
    A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have.
    -Thomas Jefferson


    ."The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the American's freedom and before I leave office, I must inform the citizens of this plight."
    - President John Fitzgerald Kennedy - In a speech made to Columbia University on Nov. 12, 1963, ten days before his assassination! "The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control.... Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent."
    - Congressman Larry P. McDonald, 1976, killed in the Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down by the Soviets.

    I went to the link you provided, and there wasn't any source material. Maybe I missed the links that the author used...

    That's why it's in general. Besides, it represents an errosion in policy that may continue throughout all our rights. OC or any C included.

    Add to thatthe factsome folks think that the 2nd Amendment from the late 1700's has to do with something that happened in 1913, and the fact that federal income tax was supposed to be a "temporary" measure, etc,......



    Yeah we've sure slipped a ways down the slope. Be a hell of a fight to get back up it. IF we can.

    Considering that the OP (1) is chockful of errors and misleading statements and (2) has nothing to do with OC, perhaps some kind Admin will remove this thread. Social Security is an interesting and important topic but if you allow this - what's next? Discussion of American Idol?
