    I used to be a Registered Democrat...............


    Now Im just Independent.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yeah. You can't trust those radical right wingers like the Bowles-Simpson Commission, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, the IMF, and the CBO.....

    I trust most of them. It's too bad none of them say Social Security is dead or has to die.

    No, they simply say that we have to seriously change our old-age support structure to reduce expenditures, or it will die. No one in either party is pushing that either SS or Medicare "has to die", that's just the hyperbole that Democrats use to motivate low-information idiots to vote

    I have not, nor will I probably ever, change my political affiliation. Kind of hard to do so considering I don't belong to one. I am independent of all political affiliations because frankly they all have their pro's and their con's.

    Certainly no one on the Hill says that or they wouldn't survive their next election. For other conservatives not on the spot, however, it's a different ball game. They've been pushing the dissolution of SS for years just as you have on many occasions.

    Re: How many times (if any) have you changed your political affiliation?

    I was raised in a very conservative-republican family, but I never cared much for politics growing up. I had a LOT of problems with the GOP, their morality laws, religious control of the government, corporate welfare policy, anti-gay policies, and an insatiable lust for war. To top it off they weren't even fiscally responsible anymore.

    Around 19 I started reading a lot of political books. I knew what I believed but I didn't know where I fit. Read a lot of Milton Friedman, Ron Paul, Andrew Napolitano and others. Discovered libertarianism and never looked back.

    I have however shifted my lean from hardline right-libertarian to just libertarian. I can meet in the middle on some fiscal issues.

    Oh, so it's like a secret evil plan? Do they have a secret lair where they go, put on monocles, and discuss it as they laugh maniacally?





    And I have pushed saving SS by making it better which incidentally would result in INCREASING the benefit to retirees (except for the wealthy, for whom I am willing to accept a reduced return until the new system is fully self-funded), particularly for our low-income retirees, not reducing it. Your apparent failure to grasp that speaks to either a basic unwillingness to read or inability to perform basic math.

    Then you must have changed your tune since I last read your opinion on this.
