I am so sick of being a debtors society and having a government in debt because of Republican machination to make lending institutions sovereign in our land. Hence we are now all enslaved to our debt scores. The title is misleading btw, Social Security is fine and would be if the Republicans would stop mucking around with a necessary social program. http://www.cbpp.org/research/social-security/policy-basics-understanding-the-social-security-trust-funds we need to get out of debt as a nation. We've done it before under Democratic leadership, one of the few things done right. It's not cutting social programs that will do it: the bill of goods the Republicans keep trying to sell us, and the sell out Dems don't stand up for strongly enough. I have no confidence in the current leadership to get us out of debt. Our PINO just files bankruptcy and gets out of debt that way. A debt spiral won't make us insolvent as a nation - we already are! What a strange game the financial world plays. It's all based on going into debt and our government is now sold out to it. But let's never reduce military spending!
