Do you know your Social Security Cards History?
A few things you may or may not know.
Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends.
They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican.
Facts are Facts.
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.
Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.
Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, Who introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program.
1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary, BUT its No longer Voluntary!
2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program, Now 7.65% on the first $90,0003.)
3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year ,No longer tax deductible
4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program, and,Under Johnson the money was moved to The General Fund and Spent
5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Q: Which Political Party decided to startgiving annuity payments to immigrants?
AND MY FAVORITE:
A: That’s right!
Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants who moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments!
TheDemocratic Party gave these payments to them,even though they never paid a dime into it!

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA),the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!
And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve.
But it’s worth a try.
