Demystifying the Donald Demand

Certainly I would be the first to admit, Mr Trump is something new in politics. The first politician seemingly impervious to attack ads. There isn't an ad that can be produced that is worse than some of the things already coming out of his mouth. So what is the allure?

Quick Logic

Recently studies by Tax Lawyers and Tax Bookkeepers show that Republican policies only benefit the wealthiest 0.5 Americans at a cost to everyone below including most of their own supporters and today's Democratic Party only benefits the top 10% and hurts everyone below including most of their own supporters.

2015 was a depressing yet hopeful year politically. Depressing, because it further emphasized the economic disparity throughout America that is ripping our country apart at the seams through the polarization of extremes on both sides of the spectrum, which in the process has squeezed out rationality. Hopeful, because on several fronts of the local, national, and statewide landscape, people were looking outside the mainstream for ways to fix the system.

​Many pundits and investors alike seemed stunned that Janet Yellen, chair of the Board of Governors’ of Federal Reserve didn’t announce interest rate hikes in September. It doesn’t take much searching to find many of these same pundits and investors were completely shocked by the 2008 crash, as we heard repeated over and over: “Nobody could have seen this coming!”

No one will dispute that Barack Obama’s historic win in 2008 was due in large part to the collapse of Wall Street and the devastating effect it had on the American economy.
