On this day, September 17 in 1787, our Founding Fathers adjourned the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.

The US Constitution has been the cornerstone of the beliefs of the Republican Party since it was founded in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854. Although changes have been made over the years, these changes have only made it a stronger document for governing the United States and the Republican Party today.

We should use today as a reminder of what our Founding Fathers fought for: economic freedom, individual liberty, and limited government.

“You have rights antecedent to all earthly governments;

. . . rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; rights derived from the Great Legislator of the Universe.”
— John Adams (October 30, 1735 – July 4, 1826) was an American statesman, diplomat and political theorist. A leading champion of independence in 1776, he was the second President of the United States (1797–1801).

The Social Security Trust Fund Is An Accounting Fiction

The Trust Fund Myth

People tend to think of their Social Security benefits as an actual account, in their name, which contains cash or investments. In reality, the Social Security trust fund contains nothing more than IOUs that have no value beyond a promise to impose higher taxes on future workers. The annual surpluses that many thought were being used to build up a reserve for Baby Boomers have been spent on other government programs or to reduce government debt.

Pay-As-You-Go System

Social Security is not like a savings account in which payroll taxes are saved for retirement. Social Security is a pay-as-you-go system, meaning that the taxes paid by today’s workers are immediately sent out to pay the benefits of today’s retirees.

The problem with this system is that it only functions when there are a lot of workers paying payroll taxes and just a few retired people getting benefits. This is no longer the case. Our senior population is growing much faster than our working population and this means there are fewer and fewer workers supporting more and more retirees.
