My response:

The gov't may have sold it to the masses as a retirement fund based off of earned income, but it was always managed as a defined benefit program... of which there never was any money being stockpiled to pay out benefits from upon retirement. The gov't is incapable of leaving any stream of revenue unspent.

Since the number of boomers is so high and the benefits have been plundered by our treasonous gov't, there aren't enough workers to be taxed to pay for the current boomers' retirements. Enter "our" wonderful Federal Reserve to inflate the money supply in order to maintain perception that benefits are being paid out, though in reality the value of your benefit declines.

The fear is being on a fixed income when we have a gov't and central bank who have gone completely out of control with our money supply.

Romney & Obama both have full support of the banks, so I wouldn't vote for them.
