The whole point about putting YOUR OWN MONEY into Wall Street is the idea that YOU ARE IN A FREE COUNTRY AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO WITH YOUR OWN PROPERTY WHAT YOU SEE FIT. If you don't want to do that, that is your business, and shouldn't be forced to put your money into Wall Sreeet. However, Social Security is a dismal performer, and the way it is being run, you will lose it all. Is that ok? There are other investments that would bring a much better return than SS. That way you wouldn't have to worry about YOUR money being spent on things other than YOUR retirement. What's wrong with that?
