The LA Times has an op-ed on the growing Libertarian undercurrent. This made me laugh.
Lane was investigated by the FBI in the early postwar years for daring to write on a postcard that Social Security was the sort of socialistic government management of people’s lives we fought wars against. True Social Security, she insisted, was canned vegetables and slaughtered pigs in your cellar. She and Paterson refused to accept anything from the Social Security system.
Hilarious! A friend and I were talking a few months ago about the wrongs of the socialist security system, and how we would thankfully opt out immediately and let them keep what we’ve already “invested” so long as we never have to contribute again.
Another good idea he had was to send all socialist security benefit checks to the wealthiest people in the country attached with a ‘thank you’ note for supporting so many people in this country.
