    It was the Supreme Court and the likelihood of at least one Liberal retiring from the bench which was the main reason I voted for Obama.
    At least, you're honest about it

    Fair enough, I think the same about some of the Democrats and republicans too and their shenanigans, but that said I won't condemn the entire party. Although currently I think both parties are far beyond redemption and should be kicked, the American people really do need to send a message. Perry I am withholding judgement and for Obama well he is just very dangerous to our beloved constitution. Although again, for Perry I don't agree with him on several issues I think he is over stepping his boundaries or attempting to, typical noob mistake.

    I don't believe higher net worth individuals should receive S.S.

    Medicare is necessary to remove high risk individuals off private risk pools and out of bankruptcy court.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    You strike me as...you do not follow political leaders, it's whether they follow you. You have your beliefs and positions and you vote for those who come closest. You don't change to follow them.

    Am I correct?

    Our government made a contract with the American people and in funding that program, largely eliminated or severely hampered the ability of the people to make alternate arrangements. For nearly 70 plus years, we've been paying huge amounts into the system while failing to care for properly other forms of retirement planning, or simply being unable to invest as much as is needed because of social security and medicare taxes.

    Do you agree with this?

    Therefore you believe then that you should pay someone else's retirement? Why not just get a name and send a monthly check?

    have no problem being forced into "contributing" to SS for your entire work life and then not getting anything back when you retire? Explain that logic?

    The real problem isn't SS, the real problem is when LBJ put SS on budget and used the surplus to fund other govt. spending programs. That has left Intergovt. holdings with trillions in IOU's as every Administration and Congress since has used that money for whatever they want leaving a shortfall now and in the future.

    "Here’s the rundown.

    Like Bush, Rick Perry is Brought to You by Big Oil

    Just Like former President George W. Bush, Rick Perry is heavily funded by the oil and gas industry. In fact, it has been Rick Perry’s very top source of funding":



    "Like Bush, Rick Perry Preaches Small Government While Growing Government

    Despite his anti-government rhetoric, in Rick Perry’s Texas public sector employment grew twice as much as private sector employment. Want more proof? Here’s a chart showing government employment in Texas":

    That's not too surprising given the size of the oil business in Texas.
