Mailbag: Readers Revolt

|September 19, 2022
Concept of a strike and a demonstration with a man haranguing the crowd with a megaphone and shouting his demands.

We did it again.

We opened our mouth and angered our readers.

It happens.

“Stick to finance,” one reader wrote. “Keep your politics to yourself.”

It’s clear that some folks didn’t appreciate the historic letter we uncovered from the devil to Mr. Biden.

We get it.

But others did appreciate it…

“We need some humor from time to time to keep things in perspective,” wrote one reader.

“Loved it,” wrote another.

We expected some pushback. But we failed on this one. We failed to make our true point as clear as it was in our head.

It’s not the politics we beg folks to focus on. It’s not the man… or the party.

It’s the empty promises we’re being sold.

The first reader we quoted above told us to keep our politics out of finance. Sure enough.

We’d never tell you who to vote for or whose name we ticked. But we’ll be the first in line to tell you that the folks who need your votes to stay employed are the most dangerous threat to your money there is today.

Turn off the TV, open your eyes and look around.

Despite the promises it makes and the wave of ignorance spreading across the land… the government is not the solution to your financial problems.

It’s the root cause of them.

The compounding nature of decades of selfish decisions are weighing on the shoulders of our nation. Massive debt… trade imbalances… and subsidies for all are complicating things beyond imagination.

It’s not Biden. It’s not Trump. They’ve all made their deal with the devil. They renew their contract each time they use somebody else’s money to paper over the lousy decisions of the past.

The problem isn’t the people or the system… it’s the widespread belief that the government can solve our problems.

It can’t.

If you were offended by what we wrote – if we picked on your man – look at your finances. Look at what’s happened in the markets over the last 14 years. You’ll see manipulation, artificial stimulus and one threat after another.

Wouldn’t you like your wealth to thrive in a market that doesn’t hinge on the rulings of a few selfish folks looking to keep their cushy jobs?

It’s not politics we need to take out of the market… it’s the government.

It’s a fine reminder that the devil lives in the details.

Our job is to open eyes and spread the message.

Only when we know the truth can we open the door to true wealth.
