History Lesson on Your Social Security Card     Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this.

It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it.  Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes. Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message, NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION, was removed.

An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message.

Our Social Security 

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social 

Security (FICA) Program. He promised: 

1.) That participation in the Program would be 

Completely voluntary, 

No longer Voluntary 

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 

1% of the first $1,400 of their annual 

Incomes into the Program, 

Now 7.65% on the first $90,000 


3.) That the money the participants elected to put 

Into the Program would be deductible from 

Their income for tax purposes each year, 

No longer tax deductible 

4.) That the money the participants put into the 

Independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the 

General operating fund, and therefore, would 

Only be used to fund the Social Security 

Retirement Program, and no other 

Government program, and, 

Under Johnson the money was moved to 

The General Fund and Spent 

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed

As income. 

Under Clinton & Gore 

Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed 

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are

Now receiving a Social Security check every month -- 

And then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of 

The money we paid to the Federal government to 'put 

Away -- you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social 

Security annuities? 

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the

Q: Which Political Party decided to start

Giving annuity payments to immigrants? 


A: That's right! 

Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.   

Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, 

Began to receive Social Security payments! The 

Democratic Party gave these payments to them, 

Even though they never paid a dime into it! 

------------ -- ------------ --------- ----- ------------ --------- ----- 

Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), 

The Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away! 

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it! 

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of 

Awareness will be planted and maybe changes will 


But it's worth a try.

How many people can YOU send this to?
