And what about our absurd defense budget? The USA spends more on national defense than the entire world combined. Think about that. For most conservative politicians the issue of military spending is a sacred cow that should remain untouched because of how much money they receive from companies that benefit from the absurd amount of money we spend on the military. There is so much fraud, waste and abuse that goes on the military (I witnessed it firsthand). So you keep swallowing the bullshit fed to you by the talking heads.

You aren't talking to a Pub here bub...I call for an outright 40% cut to all federal policies and budgets.

You could work up to that number over the next 5 years if needed, but I want a much smaller federal government, defense included.

Don't try to put me in a pile.

That bolded word makes me realize that you are not only young, but naive as well.

Kind of rich calling someone naive while you pretend you've actually 'taken care of yourself.'

Have I not?

I certainly don't expect to get anything from that broke ass program called SS, and I will not put my retirement or my future in the hands of a business whom I know can go bankrupt at any time.

Employees don't typically contributes to a pension. That is company funded and paid.

No it won't. If you really think that something this absurd could transpire in the USA you need to have your head examined.

Of course it could happen. No chance today but what happens if our debt becomes unmanageable. Something drastic may happen. Maybe not be bank seizures but something will give.

In the USA 401ks will be seized long before savings accounts.

PS - this did happen in the US in 1933 when Roosevelt ordered all citizens to sell their gold to the government at a fixed price - and subsequently increased the price by around 75%.
