Social Security is pretty popular with, and a great program for, most of those that receive the benefits. However, itís just like any other tax. No one wants to pay it. I pay taxes now that I wouldnít if they werenít mandatory. I pay school taxes, but I donít have any kids. School taxes arenít popular with me. That tax money doesnít benefit me directly. Why canít I, and others like me, opt out? I promise I wonít try to go to public school later.
