Can you save and fund retirement using ONLY life insurance?

Indulge me while I start out with this important fact:

The rate of return in cash value life insurance SUCKS!

And I don't care if you're talking about Whole Life or Indexed Universal Life or anything else.

So the question is basically this: Can I plan for a successful retirement using ONLY cash value life insurance and not doing any additional outside investing or leveraging my policy for other economic opportunities? Just the life insurance?
