Tunes are going through my head today and here’s why.
By the time most Americans pay their taxes and the interest on their bills it leaves them with less than $20,000 to live on.
Years ago John Folgarty astutely penned these words:
“Long as I remember rain’s been comin’ down
Clouds of mystery pourin’ confusion on the ground
Good men through the ages tryin’ to find the sun
And I wonder, still I wonder who’ll stop the rain?”
With 59.7% of Americans’ income going to pay taxes[i] today, the rain’s still comin’ down.
Add to this the interest due on all the bills for the average household and it’s a mess that is financially crippling millions.
A recent Federal Reserve survey shows that 1 out of 5 people age 55 to 64 have no retirement savings.[ii] But putting age ranges aside, most Americans adults won’t be ready for retirement regardless[iii] of what they do traditionally.
You are in a privileged position to understand the power of The Perpetual Wealth Code.™ This week share this video link (McFieInsurance.com/info) with your friends and family. Who knows, you just might prevent them from becoming one of these horrible statistics. And they’ll be able to sing a different tune.
The responsibility to share the truth to help those who don’t know it is a grave responsibility. If by sharing, you help them to keep just part of the interest and taxes they are now throwing away, you will help them have a healthier, wealthier and more productive life.
Take a moment and pass this link on to 5 or 10 people that you know today. Many will thank you for it.

“When success is equated with excess
The ambition for excess wrecks us
As top of the mind becomes the bottom line
When success is equated with excess.
Like a puppet on a monetary string
Maybe we’ve been caught singing
Red, white, blue, and green
But that ain’t my America,
That ain’t my American dream.”
– Tom McFie
