‘Death of Social Security’ in 2016?


Received an email with a link that stated 2016  . . .  The Death of Social Security. The link brought me to a video by James Davidson.  It was very similar to one that I watched from him in the past, so I stopped watching after a while and decided to look for a written version of it. Instead, I basically found a summary related to it.

Here is some of what it had to say:

As you know, Social Security operates as a classic Ponzi scheme — new contributions are used to pay off earlier contributors.

The problem is twofold: Our government tapped into Social Security savings, and there are not enough new contributors to pay those who already funded the system.

And the problem is worse than any government agency wants to admit.

However, one famous economist, James Dale Davidson, boldly states…

“We could see the end of Social Security as soon as 2016, 

and there is nothing President Obama, Congress or 

any other government agency can do to stop it.”

Yes, Social Security as we know it could end in 2016.

Before you dismiss Davidson’s warning, know that he has a remarkable track record of calling nearly every major economic shift over the last three decades.

For example, Davidson predicted the stock market collapse of 1999 and 2007, along with the fall of the Soviet Union and Japan’s economic downfall, to name just a few.

And his predictions have been so accurate, he’s been invited to shake hands and counsel the likes of former presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton — and he’s had the good fortune to befriend and convene with George Bush Sr., Steve Forbes, Donald Trump, Margaret Thatcher, Sir Roger Douglas and even Boris Yeltsin.

So, how can Davidson be so sure that Social Security will end in 2016?

As Davidson explains in a newly released video, “Right now, there are five massive cracks in the American economy’s foundation that are converging for the first time in history. This is a landmark development that I am convinced will trigger the greatest depression we’ve ever seen. Yes, worse than the 1929 Great Depression.”

Davidson’s new video is causing a controversy, not just because of what he says, but because the evidence he provides is irrefutable (he uses over 20 unquestionable charts to prove his point).

“I know that everywhere you turn things look pretty good,” Davidson goes on to say, “The market is near all-time highs, the dollar is strong and real estate is booming again. But remember, the exact same scenario played out in 1999 and 2007. The economy is unraveling right now, and fast. Very fast.”

Davidson warns that a 50% stock market collapse is looming, that “real estate will plummet by 40%, savings accounts will lose 30% and unemployment will triple.” http://thesovereigninvestor.com/exclusives/2016-the-end-of-social-security/

I have done some research into James Davidson’s more recent predictions.  What the above fails to mention is that he claimed certain things about a collapse in 2015 that did not happen.

And no, I do not believe that 2016 can be the ‘death of Social Security.’ For non-USA readers, Social Security is a government mandated retirement program that has made many promises to so many, that unless the USA economy really revs up, it will not be in a position to fulfill its promised obligations.

That being said, I do not expect Social Security to die this year.

Nor do I believe that many of James Davidson’s dire predictions can happen this year.

But that does not mean that they will never happen or that the USA will be able to continue as it has been.

Notice also the following from some time ago:

Social Security’s Coming Crash: The Certain End of Entitlement

Social Security and Medicare are disastrously unbalanced for three reasons. First, “contributions” to Social Security and Medicare are insufficient to provide the promised benefits. Indeed, Social Security operates as a classic Ponzi scheme, with new contributions used to pay off earlier “investors.”

Second, life expectancy is up, and fertility rates are down. The population is aging, with a larger number of elderly living longer. This is good news for people but bad news for Uncle Sam.

Third, medical outlays are increasing rapidly. In recent decades Medicare outlays have risen three percent annually above the increase in per capita GDP …

The ultimate result of social welfare is, as Chancellor Bismarck intended, to encourage widespread dependency on the state. America’s Founding Fathers feared this possibility. As Thomas Jefferson put it, “Dependence begets subservience and venality.”

The imminent collapse of Social Security adds another element to the studied campaign to make people dependent. Never mind that successive presidents and Congresses have promised to protect the elderly. Never mind that policymakers have discouraged Americans from preparing for their own retirement. Never mind traditional notions of commitment, trust, and honor. Uncle Sam will leave everyone high and dry without even a glance backward.

We must confront the welfare state and the entitlement mentality that underlies it. To do that, we must transform Social Security.

The longer we wait, the more difficult it becomes to close the gap. …

Reforms are hardest to apply to those who have already retired: “Delaying action until the baby boom is in full retirement insures that the next generation will bear the burden of current inaction,” argue Andrew J. Rettenmaier and Thomas R. Saving of the Private Enterprise Research Center at Texas A&M University.

And that cost will be huge. David M. Walker observes that

Failure to take steps to address our large and structural long-range fiscal imbalance, which is driven in large part by projected increases in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security spending, will ultimately have significant adverse consequences for our future economy and the quality of life of our children, grandchildren, and future generations of Americans. As a result, the federal government needs to engage in a fundamental review, reassessment, and reprioritization that will ultimately have to span all major spending programs and tax policies.

Perhaps economic reality will finally force Congress to act. For Social Security has become the reverse third rail of government finance: Don’t touch it, and America’s economy dies. (Chronicles November, 2009  http://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/social-securitys-coming-crash-certain-end-entitlement)

There are serious financial issues looming for Social Security. The above came out in November 2009–the Obama Administration and Congress have not taken proper fiscal steps to save it.

In the USA presidential contest, I do not believe that Hillary Clinton has laid out a plan to possibly reverse this, nor do I have confidence that Donald Trump can either.  It is not that neither have any good ideas or that one may not be better for the economy at times than the other. It is just that I expect whoever wins to have to deal with problems they will not truly understand and make decisions that will not always work out well for the USA.

Based on statements both of them have made, I believe their minds are of a debased sort (cf. Romans 1:28) and that their decisions will not end well (cf. Romans 1:32).

Some items of possibly related interest include the following:

America’s Day of Reckoning 2017 Dollar Collapse? Economist James Dale Davidson says that a financial bloodbath will hit the USA and there is nothing that Washington can do to stop it. He claims that at least 57 nations have gotten together to dethrone the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. He claims this can happen any day or in a few months. He mentions China, Russia, the AIIB, and gold. He claims his track record in predicting massive shifts in the past should assure people that he is right about this. He claims that there will be massive unemployment, near elimination of social security benefits, and more. Is James Dale Davidson possibly right on any of this? Dr. Thiel goes over many of his claims and explains what the Bible shows related to the coming collapse of the US dollar.

USA Ushering in the Collapse of its Currency This Year? According to financial reporter Porter Stansberry, the USA is ushering in the collapse of the US dollar through its debt, regulations such as FATCA, and other policies. Porter Stansberry proposed that marshal law could be implemented in the USA. Is any of this possible? Will there end up being a collapse of the USA dollar? While parts of FATCA have been delayed, will the USA end up losing its economic dominance? What does Bible prophecy reveal?
