Thanks Danton - I agree..."Too much emphasis on semantics...

...and splitting hairs." And thanks for backing me up on that point.

My point as the Original Poster was to shed light on the Social Security System and that we should keep an eye on the money they steal from us each paycheck.

Whatever you call it; insurance, tax, entitlement, even welfare, all that matters is that lots of the money you earn gets taken away and you may never see it - or much of it.

Just consider how many millions of people die and have died too early to have ever collected a penny of it back.

The whole system is theft, based on a plan for the payers to die off before becoming payees.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
