"Social Security"

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the federal government to "putaway," you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which party took Social Security from an independent fund and put it in the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic-controlled House and Senate.

Q: Which party put a tax on Social Security?

A: The Democratic party.

Q: Which party increased the tax on Social Security?

A: The Democratic Party with Al Gore casting the deciding vote.

Q: Which party decided to give money to immigrants?

A: That's right, immigrants moved into this country and at 65 got SSI Social Security. The Democratic Party gave that to them although they never paid a dime into it.

Then, after doing all this, the Democrats turn around and tell you the Republicans want to take your Social Security. And the worst part about it is, people believe it!

Barb, thanks for the reminder but, this year more than ever, the Democratic Party and its voting members are driven by an irrational hate. Facts are no longer a consideration. This hatred has corrupted the heart and soul of the Democratic base. I have heard otherwise rational people bitterly wish death upon our President. I have seen the acts of violence and vandalism committed by Kerry "supporters" and I am overwhelmed by the disinformation these "useful idiots" regurgitate from their vacuous, erroneous, hate consumed sources. Frankly, I have had enough! I love a good debate, I love a good argument and I love a good shouting match but I do not have to suffer the fool! I am disgusted with the absolute lack of knowledge and substance from the left. Hate is a blinding and destructive force and it is the force behind the left, behind the Democrats and behind Sen. Kerry's campaign success. In these dark hours for our nation, the greatest darkness is from within. I fear the growing darkness but I trust time and truth will vanquish these shadows of ignorance and the hate-filled masses will surrender to the forces of enlightenment.
