I like to rage at boomers as much as anyone (well, more than anyone else most likely, lol!) but most of that is probably due to my ultra-liberal mom being a Boomer, always using the "I paid for it, I better get it!" line, etc. Boomers didn't create the system, of course, it was FDR that foisted this monstrosity upon us. But... they really, really like it. I simply cannot understand why. It's terrible in every imaginable way IMHO. It's something the govenrnment has no mandate/power to do legitimately, it fosters an entitlement mentality that is anathema to the ideals upon which this country was founded/flourished and it punishes, well, ME and my generation relentlessly and ruthlessly.

I'm not interested in finding a way to save the SS system... I want to DESTROY it. Period. Erase it from history. No alternative I've heard is worse than it is for everyone involved.
