Show Me The Money

How did we let our so-called leaders, our Presidents do away with every one's social security to pay for War without any regard for any one's future. It started with Ronald Reagan in the seventies and every President since has raided the Social Security Surplus. George W finished it off in 2005 to pay for the Iraq war. Now that the baby boomer's are all near retirement and have paid all their lives into it, there is nothing left to dip into. Nobody seems to be outraged by this fact. The young people all think it is no big deal like they don't think they will ever get old or need help.
The attitude seem to be that oh well it's too bad, just outrages me and should most. Do we really believe that it is somehow in our best interests to allow our government to do as they please with our money!! People wake up!! That was our money as a whole that they just blew all to hell for unnecessary war and programs to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. Do people know that the biggest campaign contributor to the Bush administration was the MBNA? You know, the people who control all the credit cards in this country and caused with his help, all the economic problems we face now!! It boils down to the fact that we, the average citizen have no power or control so we have all just become complacent and let our rulers  walk all over us.  Our fear of terror has led to our demise in this and so many ways we are just starting to realize. In the old days young people used to protest and assemble and eventually it made a difference. Maybe we need to get involved and start again. Small steps lead to big steps and before you know it it can take on a life of its own. Sure it will not be easy, but is our future and our children's future not worth the effort?
