Whether you voted for Barack Obama or John McCain, one thing has become quite clear. This country is ready to move out of the black hole that we've been in for quite some time. I am a total believer that the attitude of a depression or a recession is self-perpetuating. The worse we think things are, the less we spend, and the further we sink. The news media daily doom and gloom sessions have only pushed these great United States lower and lower.
Your 401K plan will bounce back! Housing prices will rebound - we need to relax and have some fun. I'm not trying to sell books - I'm trying to sell the United States! We live in a truely amazing place and we need to take advantage of it. The best way to do this is to take our limited time on earth to celebrate our existance. After all, when we're all old and grey, we will look back on certain times and experiences in our life and smile - now is the time to make those memories.
