One of the great American values is we take our vote seriously. We debate. We question. We listen. And then after Nov. 2, we support whoever is elected.
One important issue is the future of Social Security. It's certain that most of the citizens of our country think that Social Security is a good program. It started out as a put-away program, but World War II costs quickly forced President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Congress to adopt a pay-as-you-go system.
Currently, the demographics of our population will require the need for additional funding to keep Social Security viable. The reason is simply that there are more people about to retire than there are workers. There are many reasons why the younger population is smaller than the retiring generation: smaller families, the two-worker family, and an emphasis on monetary success rather than family values.
There is one issue, however, that is far more important. Our country has lost 45,000,000 people to abortion. Those souls and their children, had they not been killed, would be working today and supporting the retiring generation. Social Security would be secure.
So, if Social Security is a major concern on your voting list, one candidate stands for ending the enormous birth reduction that has been going on since Roe vs. Wade -- President Bush, who has chosen American life as his first and most important criteria.
