The American Vision – The Ponzi Scheme


By TLB Contributing Author & TLBTV Show Host: Bill Muckler

A Ponzi Scheme is a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors. Does this sound familiar? Remember how Bernie Madoff fleeced his investors out of more than fifty billion dollars and then was accused of operating the largest investment fraud of all time.

Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi Scheme was peanuts compared to the Ponzi Scheme scam Franklin Delano Roosevelt pulled off on “We the People.”

It all started when he signed the Social Security Act into law on August 14,1935. In addition to several provisions for general welfare, the new Act created a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65, or older, a continuing income after retirement. This was the official beginning of transforming America into a socialist state.

This scheme was based on the first “chumps” being paid benefits from the FICA taxes collected from later “suckers.” A Ponzi Scheme which is now one of the most dysfunctional agencies in the federal government has an annual budget of more than $66 billion dollars paying out more than $100 billion dollars more than it brings in from its newer, younger “saps” who think this will last forever. Unfortunately, it won’t. It will be bankrupt in the blink of an eye.
