There are no more "free markets" in America, at least outside of emerging underground ones that will be necessary for survival. There is only intervention and manipulation by the Fed, Treasury, Goldman Sachs, and JP Morgan, et al. I would not invest in "the market" with your money, much less my own.
I can't decide if the US is becoming fascist or socialist--maybe a little of both? I do know this, however: it's time that reasonable people think about secession and independence. It may be the only sane course. Let DC and its corrupt allies stew in their own juices. The rest of us can do better on our own.

Quote for the day: "That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."--Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence (1776).
