Grover Norquist Says Gutting Social Security is About Changing the Way People Think About Rich People 

Whatever It Is I'm Against It pulls the following Grover Norquist quote from this Guardian article:

If 100% of Americans at age 18 knew they were going to retire with a savings account, it would change their attitude to regulating companies, it would change attitudes towards envy, and how they feel about rich people. The entire secular growth in the Republican vote can be explained by the growth of stock ownership. It changes what you read, what you watch, and what you think.

One thing about Grover ... he's more honest than your average Republican activist. Destroying social security is indeed about creating an America in which people are even more dependent on private corporations for survival.
