LP Monday Message: Social Security poll

August 22, 2011

Dear Friend of Liberty,

A recent radio appearance gave me the idea to ask Libertarians what they think about cutting Social Security benefits.

Please take the poll here.

Last Friday I was a call-in guest on the WMNF Rob Lorei show in Tampa, Florida. I answered many questions about the LP in general, as well as about Congressman Ron Paul, who was the 1988 LP nominee for president.

How should we deal with the financial problems of the Social Security system?

We should cut Social Security benefits.
13% (596 votes)
We should raise Social Security taxes.
5% (228 votes)
We should do both -- cut benefits and raise taxes.
6% (278 votes)
We should completely get rid of Social Security.
53% (2392 votes)
We should not worry about it -- things will sort themselves out.
2% (104 votes)
Other
21% (950 votes)
Total votes: 4548

"Here's the Libertarian approach to unemployment: cut taxes and spending, and let the free market work.
