Why? To get to FIRE quickly. That's why! Now, if you want to wait until you're 55, 60, or 65 to retire (not FIRE BTW) then put your gold and silver coins in cans under your bed <grin>.

For those not interested in FIRE, there is another retirement board called "Retirement Investing". Lot's of talk there about social security, medicare, medigap policies, defined benefit pensions, and CDs.

Low ROI real estate investing probably belongs over there too.

But if you are really interested in real EARLY retirement, there's no way you can get there via investing if you don't make stocks your main investment vehicle.
