Come on, you don’t honestly believe that Social Security is going to be around when you retire. You know how career politicians operate. Any money would have long ago been pilfered by elected officials.
Even if you manage to conceal your assets from the tax collector and to hide away some savings in a personal bank account, you can only expect the funds to be embezzled by an ambitious speculator. By now, you have got to realize that any investment banker will steal everything you deposit. You might think that buying precious metals might leave you a little something for those terminal years of life – but only a fool would imagine that you are actually going to get genuine gold for your cash. Get real, there is not going to be anything for you when you retire.
Surely you might as well enjoy a life of leisure right now rather than wait until you have reached a future state of decrepitude. Why save money for a dream home on the golf course when Alzheimer’s will probably take you down before you can even sink the first put? Enjoy your free time right now rather than having to wait until you are drooling your days away in some hospice. You don’t need investments for your “golden years”; you only need a graceful exit strategy.
The only senior benefit that you should bank on is a working firearm. The only old-age plan that you should depend upon is a well-oiled revolver. The most certain retirement program is a loaded .357 magnum. The only pension package that you should trust is a box of cartridges.
