Power4445:  Question:  what’s everyone’s opinion on what will happen to the plan to raise the rate if Biden wins?  I don’t think he will, but what if?  I think it was said here months ago that if he wins, this is toast.  Since we now seem to be waiting another week to four weeks, I’m assuming the election will come and go without the rate change. imo Thoughts?

Safeone:  In my humble opinion:  We should not be worrying about American politics in this study.  Yes, we have an important duty to vote on November 3.  Yes, The Fab Four includes Trump.  However, what is done is done.  I think we need to stay focused on what is happening n Iraq.  Iraq controls their own currency and they are the only ones who do.  Influences abound, opinion abounds BUT they control.

Ross:  IMO regardless of who wins the election the RI will happen as they say the die is cast.  IMOO it would be better for us if the RI happens this year (better for me also Lol) cause if the democrats win and the RI happens next year you can expect to see a huge tax increase on your gains cause they will need a lot $$$ to pay for all the promised giveaways and programs. If you listen to or read their platform this is a no-brainer to figure out.  Besides you will be considered the evil rich for which to tap with more taxes.
