43. There could be upside.

For example, I would drink myself to an early grave, and would not be around to see the demolition of Social Security.

A new Jon Stewart / Stephen Colbert satire would arise, and make me laugh so hard I'd forget about being so sick now that Medicare was gone.

My awareness of politics and knowledge of current events would skyrocket, because everyday I'd hear the latest fiasco and bits of outrageous corruption and incompetence, and feel compelled to watch it like the train wreck that was the Bush years. "Heckuva job Brownie!"

Liberal groups would get a resurgence of donations.

Geography knowledge would be enhanced, as school kids learn about the countries we would liberate.

That's pretty much the only upside I can think of. Seriously it was just a train wreck. And would be.
