Why do you "feel for the OP?" That would be me. Do you think...

...I had any CHOICE but to pay into the Socialist Security System all my life?

You make it sound like it's something I CHOSE to do because I thought the government would take care of me in retirement.

As a matter of fact, several years ago I tried to opt out of Social Security System by asking them for all my money back and telling them they would never have to pay me anything.

But they said I was not allowed to do that. No surprise there but at least I tried.

Maybe you're not a U.S. citizen. Or maybe you somehow earn your luiving in such a way that you can bypass the Social Security System.

But most Americans are forced to pay into it all their working lives.

So unless you aren't one of them, you shouldn't feel any sorrier for me than you do for yourself because presumably you've been paying into it all your working life too.

So you're not schooling me in the least with your reply. I know full well the government is looting/killing machine.

The looting part was what my original post was all about.
