    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    People are responsible for their own happiness, whether they are rich or poor.

    Rich people can be happy or sad... poor people can be happy or sad... depending on who they are, as human beings.

    I've known rich people with lousy attitudes, I've known poor people with great attitudes...and vice versa.

    I have never had a million dollars but I have never been poor. I am retired and living exactly what I wanted to live when i was young.

    I live very nicely. i don't have a mansion but I have a good house. I have everything I need and most of what I want.

    I also have the wife I married 51 years ago; two successful, good people as children. My friends know they can depend on me. The only real stress is my health but it has never been good so the stress isn't that bad.
    Democrats are a clear and present danger to our democracy and our society.

    Here is a quote not taken out of context, "
    Mr V I know exactly what it is like to have millions and millions of dollars. I do not have to have it to know what it is like."

    That clarifies it a bit more don't you think?

    Now now pretend MR Rotschilds. You don't know what I am talking about in my op because you are not telling the truth. If you were a real wealthy person you would know exactly what I am talking about in the OP.

    My worth is a bit less than two millions.

    You err. Did I mention you sound like any other person who does not yet have wealth?

    I have a different kind of wealth that is not measured by numbers. Any material thing that I do have I do not consider it to be wealth. None of this is ours. I just have only what I need to live in comfort and nothing more. Anything more is a waste. I measure wealth in health joy comfort and basic needs. Having been a person who almost died because of environmental pollution from the Hanford Nuclear facility, and then almost died from the pharmaceutical company whos kill pill I took to try to help cure what Hanford did. I know now for sure 100% that life itself is the most important thing in life. Without life nothing else matters. Without life you cant have any thing. Life is the greatest gift of all. It is enough alone for anyone to find true happiness.

    I also measure real happiness in having those I love. It is a real gift beyond measure. I am aware with my whole being that any day could be our last. I appreciate every breath and every moment with all of my heart. I don't take one second for granted. We do not know if we will be here tomorrow or in the next second anything can happen, all we can do is appreciate life to its fullest.

    You can measure your wealth how you choose. But you do not have the right to treat others as though they are worthless because they have less things than you or less fake numbers in a digital cloud than you. You are one solar flare away from not even having zero's in your account, better get some of that in assets or gold. But You are going to have to come up with one hell of a magic spell if you want to take that with you when you cross over.

    Oh good heavens MV, the economy could totally collapse and your investments could end up being worthless. Then what? If everything that you have is the only thing that defines you, if you end up with nothing, you are lost.
