Government ponzi scheme

"Yesterday Neal Boortz was comparing the social security system to Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme. The comparisons were amazing. The only difference between Madoff and our intrepid leaders is that he couldn’t force more people to 'invest' in his scheme and it ultimately collapsed under its own weight, but the government can hold a gun to our head and make us keep funding a system which is doomed to fail for the same reason his did. The other difference is that Madoff went to jail and our 'leaders' go to whatever resorts they want to at the taxpayers expense." -- March 30, 2010 on the Predestinarian forum
