History Lesson

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Terms of office, March 4, 1933 to April 12, 1945), a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

  1. That participation in the Program would be completely VOLUNTARY, the only way he could get BOTH parties to agree to it.
  2. That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the Program.
  3. That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year.
  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
  5. That the annuity payments to the retirees would NEVER be taxed as income.

Those who have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month – now find that they are getting taxed on 85% of the money they paid to the Federal Government to ‘Put Away’ for them.

1958 was the first year that Congress, not President Eisenhower (34th President, Republican, term of office, January 20, 1953 to January 20, 1961), voted to remove funds from Social Security and put them into the General Fund for Congress to spend. It was a Democratically controlled Congress.

Question: Which political party took Social Security from the Independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the General Fund, so that Congress could spend it?

Answer: It was Lyndon B. Johnson (Democrat, term of office, November 22, 1963 to January 20, 1969) and the Democratically controlled House and Senate.

Question: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

Answer: The Democratic Party.

Question: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

Answer: The Democratic Party with William Jefferson Clinton, 42nd President (term of office, January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001), and the 45th Vice President, Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. (term of office, January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001). It was Democrat Albert Arnold Gore, Jr., Vice President who cast the “tie breaking” vote as President of the Senate!!!!!

Question: Which Political Party decided to start giving Annuity payments to IMMIGRANTS?

Answer: President James Earl Carter (Democrat, term of office, January 20, 1977 to January 20, 1981). IMMIGRANTS moved into this country and became Democrats. At age 65, they began to receive Social Security payments even though they had NEVER PAID A DIME INTO IT!!!

After violating the original contract, the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!!! The worst part about this is that uninformed citizens believe the Democrats!!!

President Thomas Jefferson, (term of office, January 20, 1801 to January 20, 1809), had this advice: “A government BIG enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to TAKE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE.”

What has illegal President Obama done with his assumed power? He is using Executive Orders to MANDATE to the States illegally!!! He has created more than 20 Czars over various parts of our economy that are answerable ONLY to him, and BY-PASS OUR CONGRESS who are supposed to represent WE, THE PEOPLE!!!

Obama started his drive to Socialize America by taking over the financial system. This was the identical tactic used by Mussilini of Italy before World War II to empower a Socialistic government!!!

Obama followed suit by nationalizing the automobile industry. It too, was called a “bail-out!” This tactic served the same purpose, to Socialize America. This was also Mussilini’s second step in converting Italy to Socialism before World War II.

Mussilini’s third step was to “nationalize” the Healthcare Industry! Italy was then under the iron vice of Socialism without a vote by the people. What is Obama’s third step? He wants to nationalize the Healthcare Industry, also. If he gets it pushed down America’s throat against our will, we will also be a Socialized country.

Nikita Khruschev stated that the American people would get small doses of Socialism passed by Congress until we would wake up and have Communism! The problem is, those small doses have turned into HUGE doses under Obama!!!

It looks like the nation will not turn back to God as the solution, but for those who will. God bless you!!!
