Throughout her long political life she has accommodated herself to current realities and worked them to her advantage. I see absolutely no reason to think she is going to change course now. I expect a third Bill Clinton administration from her. He completed Reagan's "reform" of welfare (better phrased as destruction of) and signed NAFTA, which was just a government giveaway to the 1 percent at the worker's expense. The Clintons do right by the donor class - as would Trump, Rubio, Cruz, Kasich, et al if elected. Bernie is the sole exception. He'd look to help ordinary Americans and if doing so wasn't the best for the 1 percent, oh well. It's not like they don't have enough already.

Well, if you're like me and have a good hunk of your wealth in U.S. equities, who you should vote for is essentially a no-brainer.

Over a hundred years of data clearly tells us that the stock market and the country's GDP perform MUCH better when a Democrat is in the White House.

So forget about Donnie Hot-Head, The Crazy Canuck, and the other bozos vying for the Party of Stupid nomination.

Assuming Bloomie doesn't run, that leaves you with just two choices ... Grandpa Sanders and Hillary.

Even if Grandpa could win a general election in this country (he can't, but say he could), the fact that he actually voted with the clueless republicans in support of Randy Paul's 'Audit the Fed' bill should tell investors everything they need to know about the guy.

It's a no-brainer, Hwn ... cast your ballots for Hillary Clinton...

You don't pass our sniff test. Behavior.

Trolls frequently open threads stating they are very wealthy, ask for advice and make flaming comments like "let's give the poor enough crumbs So they are not rioting in the steets" They also tend to post several times in those threads. Real new posters don't tend to post that frequently.

I'm going to be paying private tuition for my kids, 20k a year for HS, 50k a year for college. How does Sanders platform help ME?

African Americans love Hillary, if she gets elected I really doubt we're going to have blood in the streets.

I'm nowhere near 250k but I do find it absurd when politicians lump people making 250k in with "millionaires and billionaires" as if they were all the same when they are not even remotely close.
