Today is finally here. Thank goodness! Today is the day you get to exercise your constitutional right, the opportunity and privilege of being an American. Regardless of how vicious our political campaigns are and how much we disagree with each other politically; we change the people in charge calmly, peacefully, and with a handshake.
As intense and polarizing as this political season has been, the beautiful thing about today is the campaigning is over, we cast our vote, and we learn who we line up behind. Our nation’s 45th President is announced and we get back to the business of running our country.
The United States of America is quite an amazing country. We are 4.5% of the world’s population, yet we produce 23.3% of all the stuff that the world consumes (all that stuff is called GDP or Gross Domestic Product). Let’s look at this another way- we're less than 5% of the world and we make almost 25% of the goods and services. That is such an amazing accomplishment and it shows how innovative, creative, and world leading the United States is, has been, and always will be. The next closest competitor to us, China, has about 25% of the world’s population yet they only produce about 13.3% of the world's GDP. (Source: US Census Bureau)
So here we are in the US, with five to six times fewer people than China and yet we're almost twice as productive as they are! When I hear someone telling me, “Hey Bryan, the Chinese are coming and they're gonna pass us by.” I tell them, “It's about time. They had a 2000-year head start!”
So get off your butt today and go vote. I've always said, actually my grandmother always said and my mom still tells me, if I don't vote I have no right to complain or crab or moan if I don't like what's going on with our political system. Get involved, volunteer, cast your vote, and enjoy basking in the optimism of the United States of America. God bless you and your family, and have a wonderful week.

Maybe, like a lot of people over the last few years, you invested in no-load mutual funds or stocks or exchange traded funds. You didn't feel you needed any professional advice… and so you didn't pay for it.
These days, you may be having second thoughts. Uncertain, unsettled markets have a way of generating lots of second thoughts. We at True Private Wealth Management are professional investment advisors. And, we would like to make you an interesting offer. From 8:00 a.m to 9:00 a.m. every morning, we offer a cup of coffee, and a second opinion.
If you have an investment that really concerns you—and can't, or just don't want to, seek advice from the folks you bought the investment from—come in and see us.
If we can offer an intelligent opinion, we will. If not, we’ll tell you that, too. If we think you made a good investment, we’ll tell you so, and send you on your way. If we think you'd be better advised to own something else, we’ll tell you why.
No cost. No obligation. And the coffee’s on us! Call today for more information. (913) 653-8783.
