Never involved in any action that that used force against you.

"How is forcing me to pay for social security which I will never benefit from not aggression against me?"

It is an aggression against you and Ron Paul has pointed that out many times.

"Ron said he would continue that program"

No, Ron Paul said he would honor the promises made to people who have had their property taken in order to fund the deceptive program (for whom it is too late to opt out) and see no other option but continue to contribute.

"However the opt-out, even if it passed, would only be available for people under a certain age."

No, his proposal was an opt out for anyone who decided to do so. The only time Ron Paul has ever mentioned an age has been in the form of an example.

"I'm in that over 30 bracket who would not get to opt out"

Do you see? He only suggested an approximate age, in this case it was 50.

How old are you? Would you opt out now? At what age would you realize that due to old age or ill health or lack of saved capital (capital that has been taken by force to 'look after the you in your old age'), has prevented you from doing so for yourself?

"and still not get SS because it will be broke."

This is only true if the currently forced transfers of wealth are directed toward an interventionist foreign policy of empire.

Perhaps the most abhorrent bit of chicanery has been the threat that if a deal is not reached to increase the debt by August 2nd, social security checks may not go out.

In reality, the Chief Actuary of Social Security confirmed last week that current Social Security tax receipts are more than enough to cover current outlays.

The only reason those checks would not go out would be if the administration decided to spend those designated funds elsewhere.

It is very telling that the administration would rather frighten seniors dependent on social security checks than alarm their big banking friends, who have already received $5.3 trillion in bailouts, stimulus and quantitative easing.

This instance of trying to blackmail Congress into tax increases by threatening social security demonstrates how scary it is to be completely dependent on government promises and why many young people today would jump at the chance to opt out of Social Security altogether.

We are headed for rough economic times either way, but the longer we put it off, the greater the pain will be when the system implodes. We need to stop adding more programs and entitlements to the problem.

We need to stop expensive bombing campaigns against people on the other side of the globe and bring our troops home.

We need to stop allowing secretive banking cartels to endlessly enslave us through monetary policy trickery. And we need to drastically rethink government's role in our lives so we can get it out of the way and get back to work.
