After 40 years of tilting at windmills with GOP votes, I'm ready to give up. Like they say, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

I want a check too.

I will NEVER take a welfare check.
And I'll NEVER ride around in one of those little motorized carts.

You're on the right track. The only way to beat this system is to be a drain on it until it collapses.

No because I was forced to participate in it, and I contributed money into it.

Welfare is a freebie. The recipients contribute nothing.

Do you consider a military retirement check to be welfare?

You'll likely get more out of SS than you contribute to it. That money will be paid to you by taking out of others' paychecks. It's kind of sort of still welfare. Incidentally, if you could just invest it yourself even at modest returns you'd come WAY ahead.

Any retirement that relies on taking other people's money to pay out is a form of welfare IMO.
