Is this the "Retired Fools" board?
Or the "Republican Fools" board?


Well, I'm not now and have never been a Republican, so I would have to answer your second question with a "no" as far as I'm concerned. And I've got plenty of gripes about McCain, but his proposals aren't likely to diminish my lifestyle so they're not relevant here.

As far as the first question goes, don't you think it's on-topic to air your worries about the quality of your retirement going forward? If a candidate is promising to raise your taxes $10-20k per year and damage your portfolio on top of that, is that something to avoid discussing just because most of the posters here are in denial about the ramifications of his policies for their own situations?
