6. Republicans I know constantly tell me Social Security is going broke and should be privatized

I consistently say Social Security is not broke, it has a 2.6 Trillion Dollar Surplus, backed up by US Treasury Notes, which according to the U.S. Government are the safest investment in the world, and it was always intended to be an an insurance policy against poverty, not an investment vehicle.
