Social security should be folded. Those who are truly needy can then turn to their local or state welfare programs. This may sound harsh to some. The question is, how harsh is it for my daughter to have to bear the burden of "promises" made without her vote? Talk about taxation without representation. At the very least, after it's ended, if it's deemed that most are too dumb/shortsided to adequately save for their retirement, require the 15% that's currently withdrawn from employee and employer go into a private savings account. Then the govt couldn't use the funds for other purposes.

Some of the responses to my column last week, titled "Immoral Beyond Redemption," prove that Americans have been hoodwinked by Congress.

These people have been duped and shouldn't be held totally accountable for such a belief. Let's look at it.
