The important part is that those invested funds are available when needed 
to pay benefits that exceed SS income. Those T-bills are as sound as the 
U.S. government. Other countries buy them. If the U.S. government fails, 
the international community will largely fail. And we homesteaders will be 
a few of the survivors.
