Opinions on the impending DOOM of the "fiscal cliff?"


I think the whole thing stinks. It's a whole lot of fear mongering meant to distract people from much more important issues. There is a 0% chance of "falling off the fiscal cliff," simply because the economy was created by us, and therefore is controlled by us. The economy isn't some magic force that dictates prices of goods. Those prices are heavily influenced by the "leaders" in this country. Not entirely controlled by the government, because there is a strong element of supply and demand, but most everything is regulated and controlled by the government, including the dreaded "fiscal cliff"

    Am I to believe our "democracy" allows us to vote politicians into office, but once there...they are set in stone and we can do nothing about it? Makes me think we never voted for them in the first place and these deadbeats are actually appointed.
