Someone just posted on another forum regarding Social Security as Ponzi. I truly believe it is and is run by our very own government! We should pour in to the AG office and demand that all the tax we've paid get refunded to us because there is no garantee that younger people will work when we get old to sustain the income to let us get the rebate that we pay for the retired people right now. SSI is big time Ponzi scheme system because we are paying for those the gone before us but there is NO garantee that we will get paid when we grow old and retire. The following is from another forum user, but basically the AG's saying SSI is Ponzi by their own definition: Just read the following four things: 1. Does not sell any independent products or services sufficient to generate an income stream needed to pay what it promises. 2. Not all of the recipiants pay in, which calls for increased payment from others. 3. Has no means to generate the returns it represents other than changing laws to collect more from others. 4. There is reasonable cause to believe that social security is a sophisticated Ponzi scheme that will, by its very nature, result in the loss of millions of dollarsfrom its participants. And my own: 5. There is no sustainable income other than new investors paying old investors (or new comies paying old goies). I must say this is the BIGGEST Ponzi that the Government runs. They should shut themselves down and do their deligence and investigate their own deceptive system. Amen on that!
