    I guess "capitalist class." I own my own farm and do woodwork and other random things. I'm libertarian.

    No these numbers are based off of the most popular socioeconomic theories and hence why there is such wide gaps in income in each. This is also made in order to compensate for different cost of living in different areas.

    I have greatly weighed the pros and cons in it and actually am relatively close to being debt free other than student loan.

    If you want to know what the resale value is, take a look at the same model from 2009. The difference between the price of the vehicle you are about to purchase and the blue book worth of that vehicle is the loss you will take on the resale. You will notice that the amount is likely greater than any savings on MPG, and I would argue, is significantly greater than the worth of the warranty. There is a reason they sell you warranties - they make a killing off of them.

    In addition, if you still have debt, the last thing you need to be doing is loading yourself up with more, man. I mean it's your life and all, but you're a good dude - don't screw yourself over on this deal.

    That link just takes me to a search bar at the top of a blank page telling me to type in something.

    Regardless, there is nothing to be gained from calling the rich the capitalist class as if capitalism only benefits the rich.

    I also want to mention that someone like myself has no where to vote in your poll.

    Yeah other than student loan debt I am making sure all revolving debt is paid down first. Might not quite be 2013 at this point perhaps a 2014 in a year or so. My financial situation as well as my wife's income has gotten increasingly better the past two years and seems like it will continue even more in the next year thanks to our daughter getting older and taking her to daycare. I'm actually more stressed about spending $5000 a year in daycare cost than anything.

    also yeah my luck with used cars had always been bad.
