VS

A liberal party that caters to an entitled class of slackers and promotes socialism and big government entitlement programs that costs money the US government doesn't have.

You get a corrupt increasingly socialist government that is only sustainable through financial and banking subterfuge and massive money printing and the inflation that follows it.

While this benefits the baby boomers and other government entitlement benefit recipients the inflation, corruption and increasing government control is destroying the standard of living for younger middle class Americans.

The economic outlook for America would be now where near as bleak if it wasn't for the coming tidal wave of government entitlement seeking baby boomers.

Social Security is a Ponzi scheme and everyone has known this for a long time. Everyone knows there is no money that has been set aside. However I do believe people are should get back the money the were forced to put into it. The average Social Security recipient got $1177 a month last year the vast majority of people on Social Security get far more than they paid into it and that is a form of welfare.

As Ron Paul says "Social Security is unconstitutional" and wants to free younger Americans from paying into this massive fraud. He plans to take care of the elderly with money saved by cutting back the military.

No way in hell has an average social security collector put in enough to collect $1177 a month or $14,121 a year in benefits.
Yeah .. I remember that thread where I stated some need to be told .. or least be more responsible for their health. I for one am NOT OVERWEIGHT ! Your answer was ???? RIIIIGHT .. If people want to be fat .. it's their choice? let obesity continue to plague or Nation and co$t tremendously in years to come.

I notice FAAARRRRRR too many youngsters probably your age and younger OBESE .. Too much time sitting in front of a 'puter playing video games. How many my age drafted .. FOUGHT for this Country. You are SOoooo disrespectful on so many platforms .. sad

The baby boomers have racked up $15 trillion dollars in debts giving out other peoples' money. The younger generation is wise enough to call for it to stop because they will be paying for it.

I just don't think it is as simple as us vs. them.

You think social security is bad, wait until the state and local defined benefit obligations kick in. What the Gov and the unions agreed to give themselves for pension, and what the pension funding was is too different things. They are so far underfunded, you will have to see massive tax increases at the state and local level just to partially fund this junk.

It is a hell of a thing when one generation can promise themselves a great retirement and make the next generation pay for it.

Somewhere out there is a member regretting starting a thread....

just a hunch
No why would I? I love to debate. None of you can refute my arguments. Most of you responding are probably just a bunch of broke baby boomers with the gimme gimmes.

Broke baby boomers living on the dole on the Soc Sec are why criminal bankers and corrupt politicians will stay in power. They need and benefit from the corruption.

Their lives are funded by taking away money from the working people. They want that.... what is it this year....$1250? a month pay out.

The US government is broke. Only banking and financial subterfuge and money printing can keep those checks rolling out. No reform of the financial system can happen because millions of baby boomers are living off the corruption.

The whole system can't be scrapped because of all those greedy and selfish baby boomers who were too stupid to save for their own retirement ( I bet alot of them owe thousands in credit card debt) They were too selfish and greedy so many of them are now old and broke.

You can see by all the young voters who voted for Ron Paul that they are sick and tired of the B.S.

IMO Social Security is an EASY FIX .. just make the Government put it back the way it was set up .. in other words MAKE the Gov get their grubby fingers out of it, stop funding other programs that never paid into it It has only been the past year that it has paid out more than it took in .. that would be LESS JOBS contributing .. why? Could that ALSO be due to Gov NAFTA allowing jobs go overseas? Illegals crossing our borders and the Gov wants them covered with SS too?

Age 25-29 45%
Age 30-39 35%

If they were just counting the votes of the people under 40 Ron Paul would have easily won.

Age 40-49 17%
Age 50-64 15%
Age 65 and older 11%

The older they are and closer to getting those the Social Security checks they more they dislike Ron Paul who believes in self sufficiency instead of big government entitlement programs. Basically the baby boomers are keeping the corruption in Washington going on for their own benefit. They would rather vote for corrupt politicians who will pay out the most money to them then vote for the only honest and decent candidate Ron Paul.

The baby boomers are simply too selfish and entitled to vote for a candidate with morals. Judging by the votes of the younger crowd you can tell they are fed up.

Both parties are funded by greedy bankers and wall st. scammers but it's the baby boomers who are keeping the corrupt Republican party going and then you have all the ghetto blacks, barrio latinos, trailer trash whites, gays and druggies who keep the corrupt Democrats going.


America has been taken over by parasites. Money grubbing criminal bankers and wall street scammers, greedy entitled baby boomers, welfare collectors and freaks. If normal middle class people were in control Ron Paul would be president.
Wayfara, help me ensure I understand...

Is it fat, old, white people who prevented Ron Paul from winning in SC?

Or is it the "ghetto blacks, barrio latinos, trailer trash whites, gays and druggies" who prevented Ron Paul from winning in SC?

Or is it BOTH fat, old, white people AND "ghetto blacks, barrio latinos, trailer trash whites, gays and druggies" who together, deliberately conspired to prevent Ron Paul from winning in SC?

Jeez, I like Saint's interpretation: "If you don't count those who do not like Paul, Paul would get elected...."

Wayfara, simple solutions to really complex problems seldom work well. Voting for Ron Paul to accomplish government reform is like hiring a surgeon to perform an appendectomy using a chainsaw.

What could possibly go wrong?

Lots of voters of different ages, weights, and colors recognize that fact, and possibly older people recognize it even more viscerally because of what they've experienced. That's whats keeping Ron Paul from getting elected.

Not hard to do since your arguments are specious and lacking in specificity. Just like your claim that Baby Boomers are living on Social Security draining money from the Nation. The Boom years are generally claimed to be from 1946 to 1964 fairly good write up on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post%E2...r_II_baby_boom )

Since you need to be 62 at a minimum to start drawing reduced rate SS. That means that only those born during 1946 to 1950 are now eligible to draw. This leaves the vast majority not getting any benefits as of yet. Next the SS trust fund is not due to run out till 2036 while Medicare is expected to run dry in 2024 (http://content.usatoday.com/communit...-republicans/1 ) This means the Baby Boomers have paid in more than the system has paid them. That is a fact and refutes your argument.

A person who lives off Social Security is also dependent on the government and will have to vote for the candidate who will give them the most government money even if they are corrupt.

Due to the vast numbers of people dependent on the government in this country the politicians and bankers know they have the American people bent over. Look at the rampant theft that's going on Wall St., Criminal bankers have stolen astronomical amounts of taxpayer money and no politician will dare prosecute them. The have gotten so brazen that Jon Corzine from MF Global just simply declared bankruptcy and walked away with billions of dollars of invester's money simply because he could. He was never arrested and it was barely covered in the media.

Social Security is just a big Ponzi scheme, yes people paid into but they should have known it was a fraud and set aside their own money for retirement. It's not fair for young middle class people to be slaves so they can support millions and millions of selfish baby boomers.
How many times do WE have to say that WE WERE FORCED TO PAY INTO THIS PONZI SCHEME??????

We expect to get it back.

Ummmmmmmm................. about a third of that 15T has been "racked up" by the big O over the last 3 years alone. I'm pretty sure he doesn't qualify as a Boomer.

.................and to the OP. I barely qualify as being on the tail end of the Boomer cycle. I certainly don't remember being old enough to vote when SS was instituted and FORCED on me. To the reference of the boomers should have realized the SS system is a ponzi scheme and should have made other plans regarding retirement............any with any sense did. Either through company pension plans, personal 401ks and such. Anybody who thinks they can live off SS alone is in for a rude awakening.

Oh yeah...................and I resent your entire post. Ron Paul is the biggest reason Ron Paul will not be elected. Too much of an overnight radical approach.

wow. rp's newsletters are used to accuse him of being racist and bigoted and his followers say "no, not ron". but he is shown to be the last place loser that everyone predicted and his followers go on all kind of racist, bigoted, conspiracy theory laced tirades. coincidence? I THINK NOT!!!

IF the baby boomers are keeping him from getting elected, then that obviously menas yall are in the minority. deal with it! your aggressive techniques have backfired just as predicted, but you are going to double down on them now?like i have said before. just like the terrorists in the middle east. their "group" has been rejected in full force, but they cannot accept that. they have to throw a hissy fit just like a little toddler that didnt get their way. if you want to get your guy elected, then become the majority. that is how this country operates for now. he has been REPEATEDLY rejected, yet you think calling those of us that dont like him names will help? HILARIOUS, yet sad at the same time.

does the widdle won paul follower need his passy? i think so. who's a good widdle paul bot? you are, thats right.him's a good widdle paul bot. ACT LIKE ADULTS FOR A CHANGE!!!!! accept defeat and get a better gameplan, cause the one you are using WILL NOT WORK.

Obama was born in 1961. I feel safe calling him a late-stage Baby Boomer. My father was only born a few years before that and my grandfather fought in WWII in the Pacific.

And let's not forget, approximately 1/3 of the national debt was also raised by G.W. Bush as well, and he was born in 1946, which is about as young as a baby boomer could be. G.W. raised the debt to go adventuring around the world and to give free prescription drugs to baby boomers paid for by the next generations.

This isn't a Republican vs. Democrat issue. For many young people, the only tangible difference between Repubs and Dems is their stance on abor tions. All other issues the parties fight about are only issues of degree in spending on programs and not of the existence of programs themselves.

I was not trying to be snarky in my post, and I hope it wasn't interpreted that way. People have a tendency to jump to personal insults and belittling others when their belief system is challenged. I don't think you were being rude, but I thought I would throw this in at the end of this post because many other people have already jumped to insults. I think this is an interesting debate.

Do you think the younger generation magically became lazy or is it possible it developed from **** poor parenting? Lazyness is not a genetic disorder it is a LEARNED trait either through allowance or observation. Each generation is a product of their parents and environment.
