105. my opinion
If you pay into SS, you should get out what you put in.

Personally, I'd prefer to keep the SS $ instead of handing it over to Uncle Sam. I understand some people may want to drink it up, take a vacation to Tahiti every year or buy Jimmy Choo shoes with it and generally be irresponsible about saving for their old age, but I believe I'm the best person to determine what to do with my own $$$ and would like to invest it where it can do me the most good. A greenhouse to provide myself with more food throughout the year and years is one place I'd put it.

As it is, I have to depend on the kindness and largesse of US to give me back my own money when I'm older.
