    He has to say something to garner tea party support. His republican opponent is killing him for switching districts to run in 2012.

    Should You Delay Taking Social Security?
    8/06/12 --- Worried about their financial futures, baby boomers are working longer and postponing the day when they claim Social Security. Although most people are eligible to start receiving checks at age 62, a growing number are waiting until they are older than 65.

    No one likes the increase in disability recipients, but to me, it is expected with our aging society...people tend to get injured or sick or disabled later in life and with the Boomers at our doorstep, we have a lot more older people. It's not like it is easy peasy to get a disability claim through....most all that apply are denied the first time they apply, it takes appeals and lawyers to help people get a claim through the disability insurance program that people have paid all their life for....

    I'd like to see the breakdown on age groups filing for disability, this could confirm or conflict with my theory on the aging population.

    Allen West is the son of career government employees;

    he was educated in public/government schools:

    he has depended on government checks for his livelihood virtually his entire adult life.

    I guess he doesn't deplore slavery as much as he claims.

    SS is a form of slavery. You certainly do not get to choose whether you would like to participate, there is no guarantee you will receive benefits from participating and if you do not make it to the collection age, you get nothing at all for all the years you've put in.

    Just like income taxation is a form of slavery. You have to pay it or the state will use violence and coercion to exact "justice" on you for noncompliiance. The same as a slave of the plantations was forced to plow, pick or what have you, or suffer the violence of the owner for noncompliance.

    You just like your cage, that's all. You decorated it up real nice now and have no intentions of ever leaving.

    A slave isn't allowed to leave. No one's stopping you.
