Rudy: "...it is human nature to help themselves to a little extra."

So...you find it less wasteful to have a LOT more human middlemen between the giver and receiver. But I guess if they all work for the government as opposed to churches and charities, then that's ok even though the government is notoriously inefficient when it comes to such things?

Social Security is just a huge Ponzi Scheme. You assume that just because the federal government is running it, that it is good?

Rudy: "...I have more toys to buy, I want that 4 wheeler, that power boat, the huge truck with oversized tires."

You point to purchasing goods as a bad, selfish thing; but consider all the people that benefit from the sales of these goods. Even the government tells us to go out shopping to help the economy! By denying individuals the capital to invest in such things, you deny many manufacturers, suppliers, retailers, and ALL of their employees the benefits of those sales, some of whom would very likely use their capital to help the 80 year old man. Sheesh, you're even denying the government of revenues in doing so! Many of those people wouldn't even rush out to buy "toys", but instead save their money which would strengthen banks, benefit even more people, and strengthen the whole nation's economy.

Rudy:
"If you get rid of it what happens to the people who depend on it? That 80 yr old who worked all his life, paid all his taxes. Has his home paid for, just lives a simple life."

Where would these people be right now, if they hadn't been forced to surrender their earnings for the false hope the government gave them? Where would we all be right now, had the government not meddled in the insurance and medical industries in ways that substantially raised their costs and consequently ours as well?

Rudy, you clearly don't understand what TEA is about, but it appears you lack the basic knowledge to understand it, because you keep getting caught up in fallacies. I recommend you read Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lesson. You can read it online here: http://jim.com/econ/contents.html
