Picking the President: Social Security

Opposes privatization Clinton, Obama
Supports individual accounts, but no individual investment choice Gravel
Supports partial privatization Huckabee, McCain
Supports privatization, with full individual investment choice Paul
I'll go with the non-Gravel Democrats and oppose privatization. I can understand the Republicans' sentiment that the individual ought to control where his/her money goes. But overhauling the system would cost a trillion dollars. Our deficit's big enough, thank you very much. Obama's now tied for second with McCain...
