Miller: If Romney’s what’s wrong with America, this country has serious problems

posted at 8:41 am on November 8, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

On the O’Reilly Factor last night, Dennis Miller gave voice to something that I’ve been pondering since last Tuesday night. One very grave disappoint of this election cycle (of which there are certainly very many) is that Team Obama is basically getting off scot-free with such a viciously negative, personal, and populist campaign. They’ve in essence been rewarded for relentlessly calling Mitt Romney a heartless corporate raider and vulture capitalist, a tax-sheltering sneak thief, a greedy sycophant who may-or-may-not be a felon and is pretty much responsible for cancer deaths via factory closures.

The Obama campaign put their full weight into making Mitt Romney into somebody we all need to be scared of, instead of what he actually is: A pretty admirable representative of the possibilities of the American dream. Sure, he started out with a good leg up (what parent doesn’t aspire to provide a better life for their children?), but he was hugely successful on his own merits; spent his life highly focused on family, religion, and community; and was a bigtime go-getter who personally created jobs and economic growth. The personal and class-warfare-oriented attacks all seemed to imply that Mitt Romney is what’s wrong with America, but if we can’t recognize that he personally is at least one type (and there are many types) of exactly what’s right with America, then this is even more serious than we thought.

I want to say that I have met Romney. Folks, I know a lot of you have been convinced out there that this guy is the problem with America. He’s not. He’s a very good man, he cares greatly about this country. … He’s a great patriot. I know that that side is going to paint him as the trouble with America. If he’s the trouble with America. If he’s the trouble with America, folks, this country does have a lot, a lot of problems.

I’m hoping it’s a good sign that, after the first debate when Americans finally saw and listened to Mitt Romney in person without all of the extra noise, there was a massive popular shift in his direction, but however great or small a factor all the negativity really was, it was part and parcel of a strategy that worked for Team Obama, and the fact that they believed such attacks were part of an effective path to victory is enough in and of itself.

In that vein, some food for thought, via Tom Bevan and Carl Cannon at RCP:

Romney’s critics on both the right and the left often accused him of lacking “a core,” but those who are close him believe this misses the essence of the man utterly. “Core” values to Romney are his church and family, and to them he is a consistently devoted servant.

Mark McKinnon, a confidant of George W. Bush, describes Romney as a good man whose values run deep, but whose politics are “transactional.” That’s hardly a sin, given that the two party’s politics are transactional as well. …

To liberal writer Ezra Klein, Romney’s problem — in terms of how he’s perceived — is that what he most values is empirical data, which he thinks complement his natural management skills.

“A lifetime of data has proven to him that he’s extraordinarily, even uniquely, good at managing and leading organizations, projects and people,” Klein writes. “It’s those skills, rather than specific policy ideas, that he sees as his unique contribution. That has been the case everywhere else he has worked, and he assumes it will be the case in the White House, too.”

Miller’s right, of course…that’s how Obama drove up the numbers with his base. Tear into a wholly decent, successful guy and make him out to be someone to fear and run from. It worked. His campaign was small, petty, childish, and incredibly negative, and America rewarded that on Tuesday, which doesn’t say very much about the voters in this country.

changer1701 on November 8, 2012 at 9:16 AM

Also we the president voted he was required to show an ID in Illinios so they must have a similar law.

cw10036 on November 8, 2012 at 8:59 AM

wow!!! did you fall that dog and pony show?? you really think that poll worker was serious in asking for 0bama’s id? that was a setup for the press. especially since Illinois doesnt require an id to vote anyway.

dominigan on November 8, 2012 at 9:11 AM

Obama did spend twice what Romney’s people did the last two weeks of the campaign, borrowing Bank of America $ to do so. Question is, what did Romney do with all his loot, he ended his campaign pretty solvent did he not?

RepubChica on November 8, 2012 at 9:17 AM

My hometown rag had an extensive article today about how qualified Ashley Judd would be to run against Mitch McConnell in 2014. This is what being wrong for America looks like.

Her qualifications…

She follows politics and is UK baketball’s # 1 fan. And our esteemed, deeply liberal Congressman, John Yarmuth, was excited about her potential candidacy.

joeeddie on November 8, 2012 at 9:12 AM

So only career politicians should be allowed to run for office? Isn’t this allegedly a government of the people?

Dante on November 8, 2012 at 9:17 AM

Romney is what’s wrong with America, and so are the people who voted for him.

Dante on November 8, 2012 at 8:47 AM

YOU – and those like you – are what’s wrong with America, dante.

But then, you’re an idiot.

Solaratov on November 8, 2012 at 9:18 AM

Right. America voted for higher taxes, higher gas prices, higher food prices, higher unemployment, government run health care, and a bigger, more powerful, more intrusive central government.

Those are really some outstanding reasons.

America rejected your shitty ideas.

Get over it.

Dave Rywall on November 8, 2012 at 9:14 AM

Probably because those 1%ers know they can get away with not paying “their fair share” if they grease the Democrat politicians. Just ask Jeff Immelt and Warren Buffet. And let’s not forget the campaign bundlers who got billions in kickbacks like the folks at Solyndra. And Jon Corzine who got away with stealing $1.2 billion from his clients.

Obama is running the government like the Chicago machine. And now we’re just like that piece of sh-t city. Overrun with corruption and flat broke. Only it won’t be those evil 1%ers who pay the price for this. It’ll be the other 99% who don’t have dirty politicians in their back pocket protecting them from the law and the tax code.

Quality of the education, I mean. I have great schools in my area, the best in the state actually, but we keep a close eye on everything and parents are deeply involved.

Oh no, winning was everything in this election, and all the retards who voted for disaster a second time around are about to be hit with an economic human-wave assault.

Here’s the thing: I’m a producer, so I’ll just keep my head down, consolidate, help friends and family, and weather the storm. Your leftist brethren down here won’t have it so easy, because when people like me withdraw from the economy in any meaningful way, the machine will grind to a halt.

“Seventy percent of counties with the fastest-growth in food-stamp aid during the last four years voted for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008″

“The increase in food-stamp recipients also was pronounced in Republican bastions such as Collin County, Texas, which registered a 128 percent increase to 47,102 households in 2011, and Gwinnett County, Georgia, where usage climbed 117 percent to 101,815 households. Collin County, a Dallas suburb, gave McCain 62 percent of its 2008 vote. Gwinnett, part of the Atlanta metro area, supported the Republican with 55 percent of its ballots.”

For the 2nd national election in a row.

Dennis Miller would probably get a warm welcome in the state.

PappyD61 on November 8, 2012 at 8:55 AM

That’s interesting. I remember some study that came out a few years ago that rated Oklahoma the most conservative state in America.

Many people assume Texas is the most conservative, but that’s just not true. There are a lot of people moving into our state and bringing their liberal ideology with them.

Interesting fact about Gwinnet County

We’re all going to be screwed pretty soon. I see California, the poor dummies, voted to increase taxes. Harry Reid has vowed to remove the filibuster limit and raise taxes. Republicans in the House will be held hostage by a hostile media. Does anyone believe that the 48% of us that voted for Romney and believe there is a fiscal cliff close at hand, will increase or even keep up our consumer spending? I and many like me will be hunkering down to ride out the coming storm.

There was a woman interviewed on CNN in the early morning hours after the election. She lost her 10-year job recently, lost her home and now lives with her son in his basement. But she proudly voted for Obama. When asked why, she said the economy was Bush’s fault. Given her circumstances, she must be receiving government aid and at what point will she give it up and try and move out of the basement. Probably never. This is what we are stuck with for years and years and years until the well dries up.

What sh-tty ideas did they reject? And what ideas, if any, did Obama offer that sounded more appealing? Aside from raising taxes and staying the course.

As for that staying the course argument, you’re right that enough people according to exit polls either thought things had improved or blamed the lousy economy on Bush that it gave Obama the narrow margin of victory he needed in those 4 key swing states.

The problem is these folks are in for a rude awakening in the next 4 years. It wasn’t Bush who gave us Porkulus, 4 consecutive trillion-plus dollar deficits, Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, a gutted military, and a credit downgrade. And we have yet to feel the full brunt of those policies, but rest assured, it’s coming.

Team Obama is basically getting off scot-free with such a viciously negative, personal, and populist campaign.

The MSM routinely painted the Obama and Romney campaigns as equally bad in this regard. How absurd! I was proud of Romney’s campaign. Though he could have come out, Gingrich-like, more often and called a spade a spade, talking about the lack of leadership, deficit, debt, energy policy, regulation, Obama saying one thing and doing the opposite. He could have hammered him more.

LAS VEGAS (CBS Las Vegas) — A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.

“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.”

“I’ve done my share of educating my employees. I never tell them which way to vote. I believe in the free system we have, I believe in the right to choose who they want to be president, but I did explain as a business owner that I have always put my employees first. I always made sure that when I went without a paycheck that [I] made sure they were paid. And I explained that I always put them first and unfortunately I’m at a point where I’m being forced to have to worry about me and my family now and a business that I built from just me to 114 employees.

“I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do, and I explained that to them and I said you do what you feel like in your heart you need to do, but I’m just letting you know as a warning this is things I have to think of as a business owner.

“I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way. Elections do have consequences, but so do choices. A choice you make every day has consequences and you know what, I’ve always put my employees first, but unfortunately today I have to put me and my family first, and you watch what’s gonna happen. I’m just one guy with 114 employees — well was 114 employees — watch what happens in the next six months. The Dow alone lost 314 points today. There’s a tsunami coming and if you didn’t think this election had consequences, just wait.”

sherry on November 8, 2012 at 9:29 AM

The sad reality is we need to hit rock bottom and do so on Obama’s watch for another 5-10% of the electorate to wake the F up. It’s a shame it’s come to this, but apparently trying to reason with people is not the answer. They have to live through an actual depression to understand the ramifications of the policies they’re supporting by voting in the likes of Obama.

Doughboy on November 8, 2012 at 9:34 AM

Miller is right. This country, and conservatives who stayed home because Romney was either a Mormon and/or a moderate, rejected a man who leads a clean and dignified lifestyle, helps others, has been successful in life and business, and who put aside financial opportunity to help the American people in their darkest hour.

It is truly embarassing.

And I dont know how Obama’s campaign is not embarrased by how they won. They dragged an honorable man through the mud just to stay in power (twice actually, since while McCain was a bad candidate, he is an honerable man).

Now, I trully hope the 47%, and their rich liberal enablers, get what they deserve.

They’ve in essence been rewarded for relentlessly calling Mitt Romney a heartless corporate raider and vulture capitalist, a tax-sheltering sneak thief, a greedy sycophant who may-or-may-not be a felon and is pretty much responsible for cancer deaths via factory closures.

Now pay attention here! Listen to what I am about to state!

How did Romney respond? “Obama is a nice guy… just in over his head.”

If Obama can win by using lies could Romney have gained more points by stating the truth?! Was not the truth be even more devastating to Obama than the lies were towards Romney? But if he’s not going to use the truth than it doesn’t matter!

Yeah.. I know. Romney took the high ground! No he didn’t! He tried to sneak in under the fence and through the back door hoping he wouldn’t have to fight for the high ground! You have to fight for the high ground! You don’t just walk up on it!

The truth is this was never about just jobs! It is about the very roots and foundation of our constitution! Self government! Liberty! Words Romney would never if ever use!

I repeat.. you can get a freaking job in any prison in this nation but you cannot get liberty! Liberty sells! People will travel across oceans and risk everything for freedom! And when the wall came down people fled the nations that guaranteed them a job and free health care and free housing! People fled everything the Democrats are promising them! But if nobody is going to tell them that then they aren’t going to hear it!

Romney focused on the symptoms… not on the root cause of these symptoms! The reason our economy is suffering is because we have Marxist trying to take it over! We have a Marxist trying to destroy America! My God… the man was bowing to leaders all around the world! Obama began his political career in a domestic terrorists living room but we don’t want to go back there because that’s “old news” or something! Well.. how come then Obama can go clear back to Bain Capital?

The Republicans are trying to play nice while the Democrats are going for the throat and we freaking sit here dumbfounded at the results! We don’t know what happened!

Yes we do but we don’t want to say it! We don’t want to confront it!

Our founders sacrificed everything for this nation! Republicans don’t want to even risk being called a name.. “Extremist or racist” to save it! And you tell me you are dumbfounded at the election results?

And I have four children yet to go out in the world. I don’t know how to navigate this culture that has been foisted upon me by the new majority of our citizens. What do I teach my children now? They will be run over by their peers who lack any basic morality and any sense of personal responsibility. Can you tell I’m pessimistic today?

ktrich on November 8, 2012 at 9:07 AM

I know how you feel, but you keep teaching them the TRUTH. You fight the immorality with all your strength. My oldest is 15 and she says I’m a ridiculously strict parent because I don’t let her watch Pretty Little Liars and Glee, or shop at Abercrombie with their practically pornographic ‘catalogs’, and I boycott a lot of other companies, etc… Sometimes I worry that she’ll rebel against me like some children of Fundamentalist preachers are known to do, but the thing is, we talk about why she isn’t allowed to view that garbage and I’ve used this election to drive the point home that the culture promoted in Hollywood has led people to embrace the murder of unborn babies because they are so engrossed in sex. She loves babies and that really has caused her to think. She’s upset that so many of the celebrities she ‘follows’ are talking about ‘women’s “rights”‘ being why they are so happy Obama won. She still wants to like some, like Katy Perry, but the seed is planted that this person supports a radical baby killing administration. It makes her sad.

So I keep teaching them the TRUTH that can be found in Romans 1 and the Church, etc… She may still be lost to the culture, but it won’t be for lack of me trying. Much as I annoy her, in a way, I think she appreciates it. I pray both my precious children do.

God have mercy on us all.

Stop cryin’ already. Lazy, stupid people voted for free shit and superficiality–that’s what’s wrong with this country. They are gladly enslaved by an elitist hard Left power structure of media, culture, and politics. They don’t realize yet that they’re voting their liberty and dignity away, and don’t seem to care.

Romney shoulda went negative, hard and relentlessly instead of all this crap about love and unity and ‘I’d like to buy the world a coke crap’. Scorched earth wins. If Romney didn’t get this after nuking Newt outta the race he deserved his loss.

Look at the movement toward him after he tea-bagged Obama in the first debate. He didn’t escalate after that–he retreated. (I know my fave word). He caved to Obama’s media. Plain and simple.

RepubChica on November 8, 2012 at 9:07 AM

The low-no info voter is what’s wrong…those that just bought into the lies about the Governor without doing their own research.

Guess they didn’t have much else to go on for the past four years…huh?

I just read somewhere that Obama lost every state that requires photo ID. That just reinforces my belief that the election was fixed. All this introspection about why conservatism lost is a waste of time.

The Rogue Tomato on November 8, 2012 at 8:48 AM

The National Conference of State Legistlatures has a page about voter ID laws. It says the following states have photo ID requirements:

Georgia

Indiana

Kansas

Tennessee

Florida

Hawaii

Idaho

Louisiana

Michigan

New Hampshire

South Dakota

Of these, Obama carried Hawaii, Michigan and New Hampshire; probably Florida as well.

By the way #1, voter ID is a concept that tends to be favored by Republicans and disliked by Democrats. Consequently you are more likely to have voter ID laws in states with Republican-leaning legislatures, which tend to have Republican-leaning electorates, which tended to vote against Obama on Tuesday. So it is no surprise that he did worse in voter ID states.

By the way #2: Romney carried Wyoming, Nebraska, West Virginia, Mississippi and North Carolina. None of these have voter ID requirements in effect on Tuesday. Fraud?

Dave Rywall on November 8, 2012 at 9:19 AM

Then why are we still at 7.9% unemployment? Do you understand that most of these jobs are minimum wage, part time or government jobs? Do you understand that we’re not adding jobs fast enough to keep pace with population growth? I know you leftists love to tout 5 million job! but that still below where we were when everything crashed.

Plus, why are government jobs a good thing you moron?

darwin on November 8, 2012 at 9:31 AM

let’s look at the private sector
over four years Obama claims to have created 5.6 million jobs
lot’s of temporary, census and job hunting
actually the net job gain was 177,000 jobs
that my friend is your recovery?
cost of living went way up and salaries for those finding new jobs went down substaintially

what business now is going to add new workers in this climate?

government jobs – paid 30+% more than the private sector, no incentive to work hard, benefits galore and the most inefficient system possible

“A lifetime of data has proven to him that he’s extraordinarily, even uniquely, good at managing and leading organizations, projects and people,” Klein writes. “It’s those skills, rather than specific policy ideas, that he sees as his unique contribution. That has been the case everywhere else he has worked, and he assumes it will be the case in the White House, too.”

That is great, but he should have run on the Democratic ticket, not the Republican one.

I think he has caused long term damage to the brand Republican for conservatives. For anyone moderate he has caused long term damage to the philosophy of conservatism.

This is why I dislike him as a candidate. Like I said so long ago, if he vowed to change his party affiliation to Democrat once in office, I would have embraced him and sent him money and got out the vote for him.

Miller is right so much. No matter what you thought about Romney’s political litmus intensity, he is a moral, intelligent, accomplished, uber-competent, motivated, successful man who exhibits so many of the ideals and values we hold dear. In many ways a model American. Castigating him is foolish. He ran a well oiled campaign, as Republican campaigns go. Much better than in most recent decades. I don’t know how to combat the demon-spawn strategy Obama/Axelrod ran and so many of the middle squish believed. That is the tragedy this time. We are in trouble. The country has converted from center-right to center-left. I disagree with O’Reilly. Intensely stupid progressive partisanship will always trump failure. When the Obama tack crashes, it will never be considered failure and will be resold as a fortunate bump in the compassionate social-Democrat road. There are now so many scrabbling dole recipients, a la Europe, that they will buy it. Look at Europe, even critical care Greece. It has taken seven generations to get here, and they still persist in their Pollyanna desperation for government solutions. We’ve only had half their practice. ‘Free’ is still the most successful advertizing phrase. ‘Free Money’ the second.

Those are really some outstanding reasons.

Don’t forget that Rywall is Canadian, and Canadians fundamentally envy and dislike Americans — it drives them crazy to be the ‘other’ inhabitants of North America. I’ve lived in Ontario for over 30 years, and rarely tell people I’m American because of the negative reaction I get. Hey, Rywall, how about that 1.2 billion dollar vote buying fraud the McGuinty government committed on Ontario? How about him stepping down and proroguing government until the end of January in the hopes that the voters will forgive and forget?

suzeecue on November 8, 2012 at 9:59 AM

Many American voters don’t have a clue about important issues and as a result confuse propaganda for news.

1. They don’t understand economics.
2. They don’t understand budgets,debt and deficit and how these effect a complex economy and governance.
3. They don’t understand the difference between governing philosophies or their history.

4. They don’t understand subsidiarity.
5. They don’t understand the electoral process.
6. They don’t understand our nations history.

They don’t understand our national Constitution or their state constitutions.

7. They don’t understand the relationship between state and federal governance.
8. They don’t understand the constitutional roles of federal governance.
9. They don’t understand American sovereignty.
10. They don’t understand the tax system.

Many voters immigrate from socialist countries and the demographics show these people are increasing.

Many voters who are middle aged have culture war fatigue and so capitulate to intimidation by minority grievance to abandon common sense and virtue because traditional community bonds have been disrupted and replaced with secular concerns.

Instead of a vibrant diverse culture we are being pressured into simplified regional groups based on simplified demographics that favors unification of secular v religious…liberal v conservative…etc.

Religious leaders have been marginalized in the public square and civic discourse.

There is little continuity or agreement to decide priorities or methods between our religious leaders or are political leaders so we are reactionary and not contemplative enough.

Our youth become confused and satisfied by distractions (Bread & Circuses).

Our youth perceive government as the answer instead of having a healthy perception of the individual in relation to government.

Our youth has no capacity for self reflection and no tolerance of opposing views or understanding of our tradition of dissent.

This leads to the tyranny of a mob mentality that is anarchic.

Our national culture is dominated by moral relativity…political relativity…economic relativity.

We are the country of self centered concerns meh…whatever…

The confusion of the ME generation continues to the next generations of the politics of personal grievance through the results of ignorance, intolerance to criticism and a drive to satisfy vanity or pleasure.

We have a youth that doesn’t value tradition in the family,the community,employment,the civic square or governance…

Our youth has lost the ability to withstand the pressure of secular trends and because they distrust the wisdom of tradition and history they lack the ability to use foresight when making decisions.

The folks that voted for Obama have no idea how bad things are going to get and how rapidly the poor economic conditions are going to deteriorate.

Case in point – FEMA is just about out of money and where are they going to get additional funding? The debt ceiling debates haven’t even started and Harry Reid hasn’t passed a budget in over three years.

Maybe Perry could have done better, but I doubt it. He destroyed his own candidacy with his debate performance. If that had happened in a debate with Obama, it would have been an Obama landslide. I suspect Perry will be back in 2016, hopefully after a lot of debate practice.

The campaign to “kill Romney” is what scares me the most. Obama didn’t run on his record and didn’t outline a new agenda. He really just attacked Romney in a disgusting way and he got re-elected. That means for those voters good governing and an alternative candidate that fit the needs of the country at that time didn’t matter.

Once you a Democrat can get elected President just by calling the other guy an a$$hole and issues don’t matter we won’t have a country any longer. You just raise money and use the GOTV and mint a new socialist President.

I seriously am already planning on a collapse of the country. I don’t exactly know how to prepare but I am assuming it is going to happen because there is no alternate outcome based on Obama’s record and the fact he made no pivot in 2010 when he was in trouble. Pivot now? Why would he? It is a foregone conclusion to me.

As long as the Media consumed by most citizens is dominated by liberal propaganda most people won’t even understand why this is happening.

They will be told this occurred because of a partisan grievance in order to promote liberal propaganda instead of the predictable result of failed economic policy.

If conservatives can communicate effectively the positive results of conservative principle and history we will gain more converts.

Thus, since they were allowed freedom to use the most repugnant attacks on everyone that did not like Romney, the class of posting has gone down hill for everyone.

I called it the Obamification of the Republican party back then. SEIU thuggery, Wisconsin Teacher Union Discourse, OWS degenerate vulgarity all came to discourse in the Republican party as the same time that Romney’s supporters did.

It didn’t matter whom he chose as VP.

I also believe there was massive voter fraud. Hey, the dems

How wrong I’ve been! I realized that people like me will not be rewarded by people like BO, because I am not a taker.
My sister and I actually discussed yesterday maybe the two of us should get pregnant and have a bunch of kids the govt can take care of because then at least we could enjoy the taxes we paid.

My fear is that we might have reached that point where the takers have achieved critical mass and us good folk no longer outnumber them. =(

Gone is the rough individualism that gave birth to and sustained America for more than 230 years. Now the majority of Americans (54%) want the Government to take care of and provide for them.

bcotop on November 8, 2012 at 10:40 AM

I believe that regardless of what anyone says about Romney, he would have fixed our economy.

At best a temporary fix. Entitlements, early retirements due to entitlements, public union benefits, the growth destruction of 53 million and growing fast abortions make it impossible to fix the economy.

I also believe that it didn’t really matter about his debate demeanor, the moderators mattered more along with the corrupt media.

His debates mattered, it was when he started gaining on Obama in the polls.

It didn’t matter whom he chose as VP.

It made me less likely to vote for him. Progressive Romney plus Ryan, the man who made deficit spending for the next two full generations supposedly a conservative idea really dispirited me.

What did matter is the increased amount of voters who depend on the government largesse one way or another who voted for Obama

I am not so sure it is dependent voters so much people who do not want to deal with the deadbeats of the nation, and would rather pay taxes than give to charity. Or rather, force other people to pay taxes instead of them feeling obligated to donate to charity.

I also believe there was massive voter fraud. Hey, the dems got away with it in 2008, why not amp the process up in 2012?

I totally agree with you. I think Romney’s missing McCain voters were turned into Obama voters through touch screen switching.

This is why conservatives cannot let up on all these scandals from the White House: Solyndra, Fast & Furious, government leaks harming our troops, Campaign finance fraud and Bengahzi.

I agree here too, but it will get no where. But the investigations need to be done so history will be there to teach those who want to learn in the future.

Also, in for a penny, in for a pound. British money. My grandmother was wise as well. Once you con a person out of their first penny, it is easy to get them to pay up significantly larger amounts.

This is why Social Security required a special tax. People felt as though they are now owed, so will keep paying into it and forcing others to in order to get their con money.
