Social Security - An EXCELLENT SUMMARY!

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this. It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your kids. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts!!!

Our Social Security

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.
He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,
No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program,
Now 15.3% (7.65% from you, 7.65% from your employer or
the full 15.3% from you if you're self-employed) on the first $90,000

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the
general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program, and no other Government program,

Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent

and,
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.
Under Clinton & Gore Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

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 'put
away' -- you may be interested in the following:

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ----

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the
general fund so that Congress could spend it?

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

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?
A: The Democratic Party.

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the
Senate, while he was Vice President of the US

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -

AND MY FAVORITE:
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party!
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments!
The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

------------ -- ------------ --------- ----- ------------ --------- ---------

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you
that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it!

Are you one of them?

If enough people see this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn't so.

But it's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.
AND CONGRESS GIVES THEMSELVES 100% RETIREMENT FOR ONLY SERVING ONE TERM!!!

A government big enough to give you everything you want,
is strong enough to take everything you have.
-Thomas Jefferson

Dennis Prager takes a great deal of pride in the fact that he keeps political discussions to a minimum. On 18 November 2009 he devoted the entire third hour of his show to the issue of Government Healthcare because he doGovernment healthcare.. . TOP

...will NOT allow our Constitution to be trampled by out-of-control legislators. They think they can ignore us and destroy us, but TeaPartiers, 9-12ers and a multitude of other Grass Roots organizations are energized and refocused.

Dennis Prager maintains we are "in a battle for the American system" and must focus on the Republican candidates because "they are the only ones who can beat the leftists." (01/29/2010 first hour)

The Elections of 2009 and 2010 proved beyond a doubt that conservatives can refuse to allow themselves to be splintered into impotent third parties and can rally and take over the Republican party by focusing on our most critical core values ~ We must never lose sight of that goal in every campaign in every corner of every State in the Union!

We must ultimately unite our efforts into an unstoppable juggernaut to reclaim our liberties, reclaim our Constitution, reclaim our Country..We CAN unite in reestablishing a government that is truly of the People, by the People and for the People!
