I've been wondering: could this fiscal cliff be a blessing in disguise? Yes, it could mean a double dip recession (which is the last thing I need since I'm graduating from college in December), but we're all going to have to take our medicine sooner or later. Maybe this for the best for all of us in the long term. Maybe this is the wake up call we need and we'll finally learn that fiscal responsibility, both in spending and revenue, is the only way we can ensure America's survival as a nation.
Of course, I might be completely wrong and we could all be screwed.
