Unless the economy does collapse as predicted by many economists. Then we can't even try to arrange a "soft landing". People will starve, and not just old people.

You want to give "social security it's walking papers"...well for you that may eventually happen.
However...anyone who is 55 years of age or older right now...that (will not) happen.

I'm tired of paying for the retirement of baby boomers. My generation will never see that money. Half of you that are collecting it don't even need it. We won't retire until we're 70, according to the experts. Stop taking it. If it's being taken with no reliable plan to give it back, to finance our retirement, then stop taking it. It's unfair taxation. We may be able to get by with privatized retirement plans, but that doesn't make it right.
Stop beating a dead horse, and admit you messed up what was a nice idea.

Why should they? Your money, earned with time taken out of your limited life span doesn't belong to you. Your life belongs to the state. Get used to it. /sarcasm
