The only way for you to get your money "back" is to take mine and my children's. If SS were run as founded, you'd be about 80 before receiving any. The retired generation has more money than any demographic, and yet they want us to work til we die, to give them what they "paid into." The fastest way to turn your most conservative parents into socialists is to tell them you don't want to participate in SS.

The government should allow you to invest your own money. As for social security, it has become more than for "old folks." The handicapped get it. Children who lose a parent get it. Government screwed everything up, as usual. The money they stole from us needs to be returned to us some way. I know you don't like the fact that now it is "your" money being given to us, so why do you keep voting in Democrats who won't allow you to keep more of your money so you can invest it and have a much better retirement fund than we who live on social security have?
