    No, assuming that I wouldn't get back what I've put in. If I would, then I'd gladly give up social security and I'm over 40.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Btw, I'm 28.

    I'm really not sure. I would assume since I don't get SS then I shouldn't pay into it.

    holy cow. you are either lying or very ignorant. since you don't get ss, would you give up your teacher's pension? after all, taxpayers fund that as well.

    We expect that you will get a monthly check when you retire. When you retire you will no longer contribute. Money is being witheld from you. Your employer is matching it. This assures you some security for ols=d age or if you are unable to work, Off hand it seems like pretty good deal but leave it to our politicians to mess it all up

    Wait a minute. Are you a pulic worker not enrolled in the system? Is that what you're saying? Then we need your help anyway because you vote. "Vote for social security and a free America!!!"
