It doesnt take a fuck ton of money to retire early....IF you start early. Thats the key. But, most people dont. That and, you live within your means. As Warren Buffet says, theres two ways to accumulate alot of money. Alot of money and a little time, or a little money and alot of time. And most people have more time than money.If you will be enabled to retire at 50 while the majority of Americans will have to work into their late 60's (maybe even early 70's) then you have too much money hoarded away and can afford to pay more taxes. Sorry.
