I think you missed my point. To say that Social Security is one generation mugging the other is as ridiculous as saying that public schools are one generation mugging the other. We, and our children, and our parents, benefit from these services as we go through different stages in our lives.

The government tells me about all these wonderful things they're going to do with the money they're taking from me, while pointing a gun at my face.

Why go to all the trouble of producing tangible results and making convincing arguments to the American public about supporting a particular cause, when you can simply lobby (read: wine, dine, etc.)Congress to pass laws that force the American people to support that cause?

Oh, by the way, I'm Libertarian.
