Investor since 1980. Truly believe the US will climb out of the hole we are in because we have proven again and again that we are the best innovators in the world. Also believe that the time for a third party in our political system is now and that this realization will be the catalyst for a new era of growth and prosperity. The "peoples party" will change government to eliminate the budget deficits and require us to live within our collective means. This will be painful for a few years (as if it isn't already) but we will emerge as the global powerhouse we have been for the last 100 years.
