Maybe if dividends didn't get taxed so highly people could retire and live off them. And no, you can't stick your money into one investment and expect it to give you returns year after year. You have to keep doing homework (it's your retirement, after all) and keep picking good stocks.

So if there's not one investment that you can just leave alone for 40 years while you sit around and collect dividends, then how would a government program like SS possibly be better? You think the government will be able to post a profit? That's idiotic. THERE IS NO MONEY LEFT IN SOCIAL SECURITY. So stop acting like the government can do a better job of taking care of people than individuals can on their own.
