TwoCybers: "Unless the people running the government have a desire to be beaten and killed, they will not eliminate the social security system. You most likely do not remember (but may have read), during the 1930's people marched on Washington and the government to get action. FDR called out the military -- not for parade, but to keep order. In my view the general tolerance for violence today is greater and the level of acceptance by the public is lower."

See, e.g., Dan Rostenkowski, when his car was rocking and rolling.
