  25. Why do Democrats hate the stock market? (09/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Every time a Democrat is in the White House, the stock market becomes a churner of the little guy. Being short pays.....being long punishes. And this hits right in the face of what Democrats always want....infrastructure, empowering the middle class, fairness and equality at all levels. Yet, all I've ever witnessed whenever Democrats are running things is the stock market teetering and tottering on collapse. As we speak, almost ever stock out there is going through a bearish tunnel. Biden is hurting the small investor who is usually only long stocks. Yes, because of Biden, the average American is getting poorer as Wall Street steps down share prices over the long term. Shorts make all the money! When Trump was in power, the little guy made money being long. That's why Trump was so loved by the people, in spite of his inner demons personally. Biden is an enemy to the retail investor.   submitted by   /u/Resident-Coach-786 [link]   [comments]
