This is not an editorial opinion....these are facts which can easily be
googled. It shows a history that the GOP is the only party that always
tried to protect SS, the Demwits have always raped the SS funds giving it to
anyone who lands into this country as an immigrant having never paid into
the system.

When are the stupid people in this country going to wake up and stop buying
into the bullshit lies the Democrats are feeding to the masses. Eventually
they have to run out of the kool-aid, right?


and who gave us medicare that they are now taking away - it's a pattern,
promise, deliver (get lots of praise for it), then take it all away (and
worse). JLG

Your Social Security

Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't
know this.

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 of Republican. Facts are

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.

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of
annual incomes into the Program,

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

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, and,

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as

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 in to the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the Democratically- controlled House and


Q: Which political party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social
(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 U.S.


Q: Which political party decided to start giving annuity payments to


A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, they began to receive
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!

If enough people receive 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.

to take everything you have.'
