Is America becoming more socialist? Depends how you define it

Nick put out another video, in which he argues that changing demographics will turn America socialist and more like Brazil: I agree that demographic change will mean more states turning blue in regard to national elections, similar to what happened to California, as Nick points…

Stock market update: going much higher

On August and October of 2019, I predicted the stock market would go much higher, and that the fed lowering rates in an expansion was unprecedented and extremely bullish. So far, with the S&P 500 up 8.6% since October, it would seem I was right…
