Let's Get Rid of Medicare: Zachary Won't Need It

A Blast From the Past:  The Republicans STILL Want to Dismantle Medicare, Privatize Social Security, etc.
Why We Still Need The Social Safety Net; Why We Can't Elect Trump and other Republicans to Shut These Programs Down  (Updated September 26, 2016):

I wrote the original of the article Let's Get Rid of Medicare; Zachary Won't Need It! back in 2012 during the Presidential primaries.  It was my response to people debating the future of our social safety net.  Perhaps it could be a response today to people who think that Gary Johnson and the Libertarians might have the answers they want.  
Cold Old People Found Here

The social safety net will certainly be at risk if Trump is elected and Republicans hold onto the Senate and the House.  The misery that this would bring to millions of people is hard to even fathom.. What is harder to fathom right now is that this election is so close.

So, before you vote, think.. Think about what you want this country to be.  Think about your own future.  Think about the future of people you know and love. Think about the future of people you don't... but don't want to condemn to a "retirement" of misery and abject poverty.
