Okay, this will not plumb the depths of social dis-unity in American society…
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to asking questions.
Why will our elected leadership never change our social security or Medicare systems?
1) Our citizens are dependent.
2) That is all. Nothing to see here. Go home.
Why do T.E.A. Party Conservatives (note the T.E.A. damnit!!!) constantly complain about cuts to social security & medicare?
1) They were sold a lie.
2) They bought the lie. Nothing to see here. Go home.
I have ‘friends’ and actual “friends” who have all proclaimed the same thing: “I paid into it”…. Damn it. We are lost as a nation. Not only will the political class NEVER do anything which endangers their career, but they won’t even cast a vote to save the republic from certain destruction (down the road) because they fear they won’t be politically viable in the next election cycle.
To be clear:
We have died-in-the-wool (“I have never needed to own a firearm but I just bought your AK47, magazines, and ammo”) conservatives who are all-but begging the federal government to keep pumping money into their
“retirement plan” social security & medicare.
It will NEVER be fixed, even though repairs could be made which protect these people. Politicians are cowards.
Our republic is doomed.
