      Of course, the RW'ers want to "privatize" social security.  In other words, force people to put their money in the casino stock market.  Of course, this is because people have been putting less money into it, which means less profit for the real takers in society.  This is happening both because people are wising up to the game and because diminishing incomes don't leave enough for proper savings.

      Even in investing, which is not what the stock market is about anymore, a fundamental rule is diversification.  Having multiple types of retirement vehicles that aren't all contingent on the same system is just common sense.
