That *should* make the contest even more one-sided, given that one side simply wishes to destroy Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and more.

But it doesn't for those 55+ NOW - and that's what many voters in that age group care about - what happens to them - if they use up all the resources for the next generation, "tough sh*t" seems to be their answer.


But you cannot use up a infinite resource?

After all it is not as if we are suddenly going yo run out of money...we can tax the wealthy, rob the poor, or even just print more.

And Medicare and Medicaid (two different program with two different goals? are also infinite and are not "running out" of resources.

All are run by political willpower (an infinite resource), money (a infinite human fiction/construct), and as many tricks and techniques as we can imagine (I can imagine a lot too).

And the canard (a nice descriptive word) of "running out of money" and the tearful wail <tearful, crocodillian ones> of loading our chillins with debt is quite nonsensical since a healthy population is not a "waste". Now the military is truly a negative wasteful investment and why we continue to fund the military/security machine to the tune of $1 Trillion dollars is beyond me.

But I am just one of those 54 year old workers who a lazy and are dependent on the "Obama Socializm".
