With everything going on with the markets right now, people are understandably worried about their 401K, IRA, or other retirement account. This is a crisis that Obama& the Democrats have been waiting for. The Democrats have tried to take peoples private retirements for awhile now. Their selling points are; to shore up Social Security and earn interest based on inflation. They could even invoke "solving the debt" into the mix.
To the Democrats, you money is actually the governments money to be doled out in the name of "fairness and equality". Theft is never "fair" and the only "equality" we will get is equal amounts of misery to endure.
Don't let fear overcome your intellect or your liberty.
