I did.

I hope I do this year too.

It would be nice if the government doesn't steal more of that away from me too, like they do with social security and income tax.

Keep investing part of your earned income is what I suggest. Consult a financial planner if needed.

I am sure others can offer more detailed advice. I am always willing to learn something new.

Risk investing money that has aleady been taxed as ordinary income for a year with no guarantee of a gain and pay 15% capital gain tax seems FAIR to me.
And I don't care if you're on limited income or a Buffett.
