Default Forum Demographics

So I started a thread some time back about the average age of forum members, and from the responses the average age is somewhere in the low/mid 50's (roughly).

Well, there's another thread on healthcare about to devolve into a poli-sci war which got me thinking about the financial demographic of the forum. Of course, there's no easy way to define that, but it would be interesting where the average forum member falls in the SES hierarchy and if, as a result, there would be a political slant.

Just a thought. Go Trump! Go Sanders! Go Ross Perot!

Speaking of politics....I don't think demographics necessarily correlate to political philosophy.

It really comes down to what your own personal ideology aligns with. There are plenty of liberal leaning people in the so often loathed top 1%, just as there are conservatives.

I fall within some percentage of wealth and income and I vote for stuff.

No one needs to be jealous about me, I'm just trying to figure out where the next meal and next tax payment is coming from.

The way this country keeps electing presidents I am young and will be paying more in taxes annually than some of the country takes home annually. Perks of getting a good education! 'Merica!

It's not a bad place. You can get houses 5 for $1 on most blocks.

I used to mess around in Detroit years ago. It was a lot of rough areas, but if you knew your way around and fit in, it was cool. Flint though... Hard ass dudes wouldn't go to Flint for any reason if they could help it. Detroit was rough, but there was enough hustle opportunity to get by. Flint folks would just straight up murder someone because it wasn't worth asking for a dollar.
