Demos against investment
Why is it the Democrats are pro-choice when it comes to terminating the life of the unborn, and anti-choice in President Bush's proposal for personal investment accounts in Social Security? The investment account would be completely voluntary, no one would be forced to go that route, yet the Democrats carp and carry on like it's the end of the world. They hate to see government cede any authority or power it already has over the individual, apparently. Their opposition also reveals their anti-capitalist stance. Wall Street is a dirty word in their ideology. I suspect they can't stand the idea of some people getting more money than others from their Social Security payments. They don't want people to risk their money because they might make more than other people. The Demos prefer an egalitarian system in which the government collects our money and doles it out in equal payments to everyone.
