Limited socialism is necessary.

 

Socialism as promoted by Liberals is incompatible with our free society.

We would do well to scale back our socialistic tendencies, not expand them.

Or at least properly fund those that we have.

Your roads are paid for by property taxes or tolls. The biggest socialist aspect is road maintenance being run thru a govt agency to hire contractor work. That could be reduced easily. Removing all ce functions performed below an engineer level to contractor would save billions and expedite road maintenance. Right now, we pay some of highest per mile of barely usable roads compared to most countries in world.

Social security should be one level of a retirement system including private investment and property equity. The costs of private investment needs reduced dramatically, imo.

If you wouldn't pay for a good or service on your own it's probably not that important. Taxation strips you of your freedoms to choose.

My God, to think if I'd been able to invest what has been stolen from me in the name of social security, I'd be in a MUCH, MUCH better place today in my retirement planning.

Probably, if you are smart with your money.  Especially if you are self-employed.

 

That's probably not true of the average American, though.  The median savings for an American at age 65 is about $170,000.  Would they have saved that SS contribution or would they have pissed it away... only having $170K banked is a pretty good indicator that they would have pissed it away.  So, SS is probably the only thing between them and eating pancakes five nights a week and rice & beans on the weekend.

Lucky responsible me, who has sacrificed to accumulate my own savings.  I get to pay for those who have pissed their earnings away.  Hooray socialism er'body.
