I love all of these Republicans clamoring that the government cannot force someone to give them their money for private companies. "They can't force you to buy things!"

Little do these idiots remember it was Hoover who started the federal income tax that opened the door to all of this. But that was almost a century ago, and they aren't the smartest bunch, so I digress..

Rewind to 8 short years ago. What was the big hoopla? Hmmmm...

Oh ya, it was privatizing our social security taxes. Instead of the government keeping it and giving out their pathetic returns after years of hard work and inflation, these clowns wanted to just give it all to Wall St.

"Let the private sector manage it, they are much better!" they proclaimed. I agree with that in some regards, but here is the kicker.

So if the government was going to start taking our money and giving it to private companies, can I opt of this trainwreck? Can I possibly manage my own retirement?

NO!!!

Wait, what?

NO!! NO OPT OUT!! Give this traitor some freedom fries!!!

So basically what we had after Bushie won his second election because the establishment ran one of the lamest politicians alive against him (anyone notice a trend over the last few decades of incumbents getting a cream puff opponent? Hmmmmm.... ) was him announcing, at its root...

That Republicans wanted to tax the public and give the money to private companies.

Its a zany, very corporatist world out there folks.
