Even the likes of Ron Paul has gone on record as stating that he will take Social Security, seeing that he has paid into it all his life. But I believe that in the long run that only exacerbates the situation. We should be permitted to opt out and choose instead private alternatives to such socialized programs as welfare and SS, and if given such an option I would opt out of most all government programs. Would you?
Dodging the questions I asked! Have you EVER accepted "ANYTHING" via a govt program?
