I've heard Kerry say that he would never privatize Social Security. Is he just against it only because he is just a typical socialist liberal who thinks that the government knows better and some people might gamble with some stock (but most people would not be so stupid because of the importance of having money for retirement. And so what if a few people did do that. That shouldn't mean that other people shouldn't be able to invest in themselves), or is there something else I'm missing? It seems to me like it would be good if younger workers could invest it the way they want to, because it sounds like they won't get much of a return (if any) the way it is now.
