Vincent Adams' latest screed "Liberal rights needed to overthrow conservatism" is so out of touch with reality that a reasonable reaction is pity for any individual who is so uninformed and hate-filled.
It would not be difficult to refute nearly every line, for Adams clearly does not understand Social Security and the need to reform it, conservative ideology or how it differs from libertarianism, the outcome of the last presidential election, the fact that working-class people nationwide are predominantly conservative, while liberals are over-represented among governmental dependents and the super-rich, the oppression inflicted by the left and its bigotry (which Adams demonstrates), the pervasive arrogance of left-wingers (probably rooted in insecurity – Adams demonstrates both qualities), and many other points.
No reasonable person – I need to state explicitly, for Mr. Adams' sake, that this includes conservatives – is in favor of dismantling Social Security, but they do wish to reform it and make it a better deal for taxpayers.
Naturally, left-wingers are threatened by this because successful reforms would slightly lessen the power of and dependence on the federal government, and in addition demonstrate that conservatives are better than liberals at solving big problems. (I confidently predict that Democrats in the Senate will filibuster reform efforts under the guise of "protecting people," but actually will do so because of the second point just made)
The worst course of action is to do nothing. Then, in his retirement, Mr. Adams will discover what an awful investment Social Security was (as currently formulated) and how wrong he was to oppose its reform, and indeed, efforts to free people from government rather than keeping them dependent on it.
