Dear Commissioners:

Please consider eliminating rules that restrict access to investment opportunities based on net worth. The classification as an “accredited investor,” is restricting me from having access to a broader rage of investment choices and I don’t appreciate this type of “big brotherism” from my government. I am willing to face the consequences of any mistakes I make with my investing. I do not appreciate your efforts to protect me. It insults my intelligence, of which I think I have enough to make my own choices. I would just like to have as many opportunities as my more wealth brethren have to make good choices on my own behalf.

Thank you for considering a total reversal of the “accredited investor” designation. It is simply discriminatory, and it discriminates against my interests.
