Classic Ron Paul: End the Raid on Social Security

Classic Ron Paul: End the Raid on Social Security

By Campaign For Liberty

Social Security will have to draw from its reserve funds for the first time since 1982 to pay for benefits. The Government will also have to draw from the Medicare trust fund. According to the Social Security trustees, the Social Security trust fund will be depleted by 2034 and the Medicare trust fund will be depleted by 2026 and the share of Medicare benefits that can be paid by current revenues will decline by 78% by 2039.

One major cause of this is that Congress has raided the Social Security Trust fund to pay for other spending. The result is the so-called trust fund has nothing in it but IOUs from the Treasury. This means that Congress either must cut benefits, raise taxes, or some combination of both. Of course, Congress will have help from the Federal Reserve, and thanks to Chained CPI Congress will find it easier than ever to rely on the Fed to do their dirty work.

Whatever your views of the Social Security program, everyone should agree that when Congress tells the people it is taking their money for a specific purpose they should at least keep their promises. That is why Campaign for Liberty Chairman Ron Paul introduced the Social Security Preservation Act, which would have made sure social security taxes were spent on social security.

Here is Dr. Pauls official statement on the bill:



of Texas

in the house of representatives

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

Mr. PAUL. Madam Speaker, I rise to protect the integrity of the

Social Security trust fund by introducing the Social Security

Preservation Act. The Social Security Preservation Act is a rather

simple bill which states that all moneys raised by the Social Security

trust fund will be spent in payments to beneficiaries, with excess

receipts invested in interest-bearing certificates of deposit. This

will help keep Social Security trust fund moneys from being diverted to

other programs, as well as allow the fund to grow by providing for

investment in interest-bearing instruments.

The Social Security Preservation Act ensures that the government will

keep its promises to America’s seniors that taxes collected for Social

Security will be used for Social Security. When the government taxes

Americans to fund Social Security, it promises the American people that

the money will be there for them when they retire. Congress has a moral

obligation to keep that promise.

With federal deficits reaching historic levels, and with new demands

being made on the U.S. Treasury on an almost weekly basis, the pressure

from special interests for massive new raids on the trust fund is

greater than ever. Thus, it is vital that Congress act now to protect

the trust fund from big spending, pork-barrel politics. As a medical

doctor, I know the first step in treatment is to stop the bleeding, and

the Social Security Preservation Act stops the bleeding of the Social

Security trust fund. I therefore call upon all my colleagues,

regardless of which proposal for long-term Social Security reform they

support, to stand up for America’s seniors by cosponsoring the Social

Security Preservation Act.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
