It's not me that demands

It's not me that demands these things, I have been planning for the last 16 years (since I turned 18) to not depend on social security and medicare when I retire. Or on the government for catastrophic incidents. It's the promise that has been made to the millions of people we should uphold. Millions of people rely on the promise, and we do have a duty to keep that promise. This is how I think it should be accomplished.

I don't believe in the implied social contract, and would like to see social welfare programs weened out of existence. I see a lot of people holding the banner for liberty, but have no plan to pay for the existing liabilities, besides a societal collapse. And yet I have to see a single person put forth a plan or idea on how to fix the current problems.
