Warren Meyer at Coyote Blog makes two short, superb points for all of us to keep in mind. So as not to quote his entire post, I'll quote the second one and direct you to his blog to read the other one:
Four years ago, privatization of Social Security was scuttled in large part because Congress thought it unfair to toss the average taxpayer into the volatile marketplace with his/her retirement savings. Now, the government is forcing us all to participate in the financial markets, but only allowing us to invest in the worst assets. Just great.
