Social Security wording part of conditioning

Letter to the editor

Pay attention to the wording on your next Social Security check. It is now being called a “Federal Benefit Payment.” Why are the Feds changing the wording? To gradually condition everyone into accepting the idea that the Social Security tax we have been illegally forced into paying is nothing more than a government benefit, a benefit that Congress can take away anytime they please.

Social Security is nothing more than a wealth redistribution scheme. The government forcibly takes from one group of people (those working) to give to another group of people (retirees). Nowhere in the Constitution is the government given the power to force people to participate in a retirement program, therefore Social Security is unconstitutional/illegal. Unfortunately, most people either don’t know or don’t care. As long as they feel like they’re getting back from Social Security what they put into it, they’re happy. And how many “judges” will rule against a defendant who has tried to challenge this in court? How many jurors will vote “guilty” against someone who challenges this in court, simply because the defendant wasn’t paying his/her “fair share”? After all, if those jurors were too ignorant to read the Constitution and they have to pay their “fair share,” then so should that scumbag defendant.

I hope we keep this in mind when the day comes that Congress either stops the “Federal Benefit Payments” altogether or our dollars become so inflated that our Federal Benefit Payments do a better job of buying us a cup of coffee than supporting us in retirement.

It doesn't just go to retirees. It goes to disabled folks. Some of whom are drug addicts, and some who are just over weight. Now the legitimately disabled that actually contributed to the system I have no problem with. However, this whole new class of "disabled" folks I do have a problem with.

Don't forget about them "crazy checks" that gets handed out to kids all over town. Not to mention them hundreds of kids that have "asthma" checks.

What makes no sense is paying out Social Security benifits to the children of the 22 year old drug dealer that was shot or stabbed to death while making a drug deal who had sex with several different women whom he never married and furthermore never had a paying job that Social Security was withheld from a paycheck!!! It just does not compute. Anyone have the answer to this?
