If you understand Liberty and the Constitution

you realize that the government never had the power to force people to pay into a government retirement plan. Sheep that we are, we freely gave the fruits of our labor to the government to invest thinking they would take care of us. The government has no authority to take what we make and save it for us. In life, as a free person, there are no guarantees that we will be happy or successful but there is the guarantee that we can pursue those issues without government interference. If you want everyone to be successful and happy then a Constitutional Republic is not for you. How can people live without SS? The answer is most of them cannot but this an issue they created for themselves by allowing the government to take their money with the promise to take care of them later in life.
