The Daily Note - Born on the 4th of July

What does that have to do with trading? Nothing, I must confess, but give me some time and I'll figure it out. I often quip that I had to be born on this day in order for my family to be allowed into the US of A but other than that, it has no useful purpose except to bring attention to myself, which I am doing shamelessly today.

I'm sure it's not news to you that I'm not the only person to be born on this day of USA's birth, but I may be the only one you can casually know as an immigrant (via parents) and the only one you may also know who is a very ardent supporter of the U.S. Constitution as it was written. I put the caveat "as it was written" only because there is a growing number of people who would either like to scrap or rewrite it into a un-recognizable document.

There is also a growing number of people, I noticed, who are increasingly outspoken about how the alteration will in effect kill the only successful experiment in real freedom of choice. I am happy to see it, because for many years I thought it was only those who knew how the "other" side lives, who knew the dangerous path this country has taken.

I will not lecture you here as to why, I only ask that you, who really want to know of what I speak, read the Declaration of Independence out loud to the group you are with on the 4th of July. Some of your listeners may have never heard it. Also I ask that you read and study the U.S. Constitution and appreciate its simplicity before you vote again.

It is in the simple rule of law that we realize most of our achievements as individuals. It is in the simple where we can be less ruled and allowed to have more choice. If it takes a 1000 pages to make a law, it is an insult to our intelligence and it means that it is not the same for all; in other words, it restricts and we don't have to read it to know.

It's the simple fact that the founders of this country debated, often agonized over words in order to write those simple phrases that are the most simple of laws in that small pamphlet called the "U.S. Constitution". It took them years to write it, yet that small pamphlet of laws allowed this country to be the most advanced and the most desired place to live in on this planet, even to this day. Congress would do much better if they remembered that simple fact and practiced the same.

I try to live by the words that I write and my trading strategy is very much the same. Simple rules for better choices creates my freedom to travel, study and enjoy life.
