I was asked in another thread that if I had a financial advisor that was ripping me off would I stick with that advisor or seek a new one. I didn't have time to answer that particular poster and don't remember which thread that was, but I do think this is a good topic for a new thread. Now keep in mind not all aspects of both situations fit together, but this does make a good analogy. The answer to that question is yes, I would seek the help of a new advisor. If an advisor comes to me and tells me he can make me millions, but has not done so for a single human being I would be a fool to choose him as my new advisor. I will talk to friends and family with suggestions as to what worked for them. I will do internet research showing me results of different financial firms and advisors. I will not put my money into the hands of someone with no experience. Anyone can twist numbers to fit their needs. Anyone can do basic investment math and claim they can do better because of this or that. Results are all that matters. Results prove beyond any reasonable doubt that what is stated is true. If the mechanics union were leading this fight I would have already signed a card, but alas they are not. Only an infant organization with no experience in anything wants to take over negotiating for my benefits, wages, and pension. I just do not see anything good to come from this.
