Social Security. Who do you trust yours with? Do you want a liberal/socialist looking after your interests? Or would you prefer someone who is conservative and a successful business man?
Every presidential election this issue comes up. Usually the Democrats demonize the Republicans as to being insensitive and uncaring to the issues of senior citizens. Conversely the Republicans accuse the Democrats of being poor managers and raiding the system every chance they get. And who knows what else.
The truth of the matter is that neither party wants the social security system to go belly up on their watch. I canâ€™t imagine anyone wanting to let that happen during their term as president. That would be political suicide for that president and for that party for years to come.
So back to the original question, â€śWho do you want looking out for you? A liberal/socialist or a conservative/business man?â€ť We get to answer that question this November. I challenge you to think hard about your decision.
Come out to the Push for a Better American meeting this Friday at Molina;s restaurant. Meet and greet starts at 6:00 pm and the meeting is at 7:00 oâ€™clock. I hope to see you there.
