You go Rick Perry...don't let them tell you what you feel...you keep telling them exactly what you feel about Social Security....the more you tell them, the more people will be able to figure out that if you get into office, Social Secuirty is OVER...you say those on it now and those close to retiring won't be affected...but we all know that you are a snake in the grass...so, we know that is just one big fabrication, if you will...keep telling them Rick...we need you to keep your little man pants on and stand up and fight and say what you mean and mean what you say...

OBAMA 2012...the more they talk...Obama 2012!!! Loving it!!!

Political equivalent to setting yourself on fire. Weren't senior citizens one of the few demographics that went Republican in 08? A few concerns about his sexual orientation and he won't even get white males. Bring it on.

Rickety Perry demonstrates that the dreadful educational system of Texas dates back at least 5 decades. This man calls Social Security as Ponzi scheme.

Doesn’t he know that capital markets are Ponzi schemes? Using his definition, say Perry puts $1000 into his bank account. A half hour later, only $30 of his money will stay at the bank, the rest loaned. For him to get his money the next day, the bank relies on thousands of other depositors who will plunk down $1000’s. Now if those expected depositors don’t show up, and he and other depositors want their money next day (a run on the bank), the solution is simple: he loses his money and the bank closes.

Another Ponzi operation for Perry is insurance. Say Perry, like millions of Texans, buys a life insurance for $10M, paying annual premiums. The insurance company makes money because they know that after Perry had bought his insurance a million other Texans will have bought similar policies, paying similar premiums. Now a fire in Texas burns half the state and 30% of the population dies. Suddenly, the insurance company will have to cover all those life insurances. They don’t have the money. If Perry dies then, Mrs. Perry and the other beneficiaries can’t collect, because the insurance company will have gone into bankruptcy due to heavy losses. A Ponzi scheme!

Poor Perry is not to blame; he got no schooling. Shooting a Glock is not the same as thinking.

When you think and listen to Perry, think global thermonuclear war. This is exactly what will happen if he becomes president. The man feels he can say whatever he wants. He is a nimwit.

Hey, I were edjakated in texas two, jus lake perry, Actually, I was educated in texas and agree with your assessment of the state's education system in general. However, it is my belief that anyone who wants to be educated will find a way to do so, even in the worst systems. Perry either did not want to be educated or did not have the equipment to succeed. One of my graduate school professors once told me to never let the school system stand in the way of my children's education.

Perry's shady dealings in Texas may make him an expert in criminal enterprises.

I have stopped caring what any of these politicians actually say about things but I want them to actually say it. Not "if you want to call it..." or "I don't know if..."

If you want to call it a lame pathetic cop out and I don't know if they phrase it like that so they can deny it later if need be but it is getting on my nerves.

Food here is terrible. And the portions so small.

Apparently, Governor Rick believes that it is perfectly fine for current retirees to engage in this "criminal enterprise." The next question, of course, is whether he would support the death penalty for all the senior citizen conspirators.

"Calling Social Security a Ponzi scheme has been used for years. I don’t think people should be surprised that terminology would be used."

So he's admitting that he's not an original thinker & he stole someone else's idea.

Funny but I don't think I have ever heard that term in connection with SS. Why Perry is using that term is a mystery to me. As a social security recipient, I think he is disgusting and petty, and I hope he doesn't get single vote from the elderly.

Perry's speculating on retired Texas school teachers life insurance policies is a criminal enterprise & ponzi scheme.

Rick has to stand by "his harsh words" on SS. His book "FED UP" leaves him with no place to back up to or walk back from, he can't hide. He is toast.
