I have no problem with trying to profit regardless of who is in office, but you have to be careful predicting any type of growth when the office is occupied by someone who is intentionally destroying the possibility of economic growth. And you have to be ever more vigilant if you rely on their numbers telling us that the economy is growing. The DJIA up to 14,000 has nothing to do with true economic growth and everything to do with the Fed monetizing the deb through the equities markets (not only from QE but also from the POMOs that keep taking it 100 points every time they unleash that bubble beast).
I really don’t give what the politician’s are doing much credence irregardless of party. One of my favorite predictors is this..I spend a lot of time driving and I notice the number of trucks on the road and more importantly to my system of analysis is the number of box cars side tracked for a long time the RR’s have been side tracking hundreds of box cars along the roads I usually travel and they have been in the same spot for years but in the last few months the RR’s have been putting them back in the system..I just saw a train last night pulling hundreds that I know were there for at least 2 years. This tells me the RR is expecting more demand, that coupled with oil futures, copper futures and a few other things tells me to invest at this time..I could be wrong but I trust trends like this that I can see more than I trust my political views or listening to any body with a financial stake in peddling their particular system to guide me in spending my investment dollar..YMMV
