The choice is yours

High Social Security payroll taxes have contributed to yearly Social Security trust fund surpluses until the proclaimed surplus is now in excess of $2.42 trillion. However, Congress has elected to sacrifice Social Security on the altar of corruption by spending the entire surplus, requiring the U.S. Treasury to cover the embezzlement by issuing non-negotiable IOU bonds to the Trust Fund.

Such economically irresponsible and morally reprehensible behavior by the politicians demonstrates total disrespect for working people. Congress must now determine how to legally fund the IOU bonds when they mature. The choices are: Increase taxes, sell legitimate T-bonds or monetize the debt.

It is doubtful China will buy additional T-bonds, so Congress will select the easy way out and ask the Federal Reserve to create money out of thin air. Debasing the currency means the dollar becomes a peso and your Social Security check will only buy some coffee beans or, at best, a bowl of java.

After a long string of yearly Social Security program surpluses, the program will soon start showing a deficit. Thus, our gold hoard in Ft. Knox should be distributed to future Social Security recipients. Congress will scream out a refusal that it will doom Social Security.
What really frightens them is we will gain control of both our Social Security program and the gold in Ft. Knox. Then let the politicians destroy the dollar.

In the future when the Social Security eagle takes off on its monthly mission, what would you rather receive in your hand: A gold coin, a worthless Federal Reserve note or an IOU? The choice is yours.
