That's too bad. I was hoping you had matured.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

i wasn't fooled for a second. When libbies convert online they usualy just fade away and end up on a conservative chat room somewhere going back and forth.

Well I've become more conservative here in the past year or so, since I've started working on my degree in economics. I'm still a moderate Dem. though, so don't get any wild ideas. :tongue:

Well, I must confess, my views have become a bit more moderate since I first came to this forum.  But I'm still far from conservative.

So we've noticed.
Notice how people become more conservative as they mature and gain experience. Interesting.... :tongue:

Exactly. Usually when former liberals become conservative, it's out of self-interest. If you have enough money to retire comfortably, you don't need social security, so you decide that social security is a bad thing because it comes out of your paycheck.

No, i was going the route of when you're poor (relativly speaking) people find humor and delight in making those that make more money give until they're equal with them. When these people, through hard work, start to make money they see how rediculous their prior beliefs were.

Social Security is a joke and should be given back to those that want it to invest in their future. I've saved more on my own than i will ever get from Social Security.

I'm not sure of the exact percentage of what SS makes, but i believe it's below the cost of inflation or close to it in returns (approx 2-3%). A low-end bond can make 4-5% with about the same risk.

Social security is a fucking joke.
Why do people think that once they have reached a certain age that others should take care of them?

To be fair, everyone puts into Social Security so it's not so much other people are paying for the undeserving, rather the Social security fund doesn't increase like it should through investing.
