To the letters editor:

I am now turning 65 and will soon start receiving my Social Security benefits. The money I paid into the system was subject to income tax at the time—there is no deduction for payments into the Social Security System. I will now be getting a measly return, with no accumulated cash value to leave to my heirs, which will be subject to income tax again when I receive it.

Every twenty- and thirty-something in the country should be doing all they can to replace the current scam with a fair retirement system that will have real value to them thirty and forty years from now. The most libertarian plan would be one that emphasizes freedom and choice, and personal responsibility. Sure some Americans might make bad decisions about their retirement, but as things stand now the government makes the worst possible decisions and imposes them on all of us by force.
