I wasn’t sure I was going to even write about the upcoming potential “fiscal cliff” on this blog. Frankly, I’m not following any of the latest news out of Washington, as I don’t really care about politics or anything else that comes out our dysfunctional and argumentative headquarters USA. I always focus on the long-term. Changes in taxes and government spending levels have been almost as common as changes in Presidency. I’m investing in long-term opportunities, and my favorite holding period is forever. 4-year or 8-year changes in government taxation and spending levels are just blips on my radar. They can be pretty large blips, don’t get me wrong…but they’re still blips.
