I don’t understand all the whining about a partial government shutdown. To those of us who see the extent of government overreach–with its threat to liberty–a partial government shutdown is a beautiful thing.
It will show Americans how much government is involved in our lives and it is too much. We need to be independent and to live independently.
Much of what will happen is not important such as national monuments closing and people’s vacations being impacted. A ruined vacation is a small price to pay to stop Obamacare…or at least slow it down.
Once our healthcare is ruined, there is no going back. The so-called moderate Republicans who say we should go along and then get control of the Senate after the 2014 elections are delusional or deceitful. We are not going to win back the Senate and even if we did, there are too many so-called moderates to reverse Obamacare. Especially if it is already in effect. Even if it is a disaster, which it will be.
Let’s be honest. So many government programs are hurtful to the American people but once it is in place, there is no going back. Wasn’t it Reagan who said the closest thing to immortality on earth is a government program? It can be bad but nothing will stop it from staying in place and frankly growing. It is like riding the subway in New York. We complain about the lousy commute–which for what you are getting is expensive–but we accept it. Between the daily grind of life and all our distractions like our smartphones, we just suck it up.
As long as we have bread and circuses, people will tolerate anything. Unfortunately.
Which is why we need to take a stand now regarding Obamacare.
And by the way I find it obnoxious that Obama-Reid would have the nerve to act like the usually timid Republicans are lawbreakers. These are the same folks who are selectively enforcing the law..their own law! Plus, the way it was passed was underhanded. On a holiday weekend using parliamentary maneuvers.
All Ted Cruz and the Republicans are doing is trying to bring attention to real problems in this law and to give the American people a chance.
This should be supported and it is by everyday Americans. It is the elitists and their media collaborators who oppose the Republican plans. The Tea Party is the American people and it is time for us to speak out.
We also need to understand that a smaller government is the best thing that could happen to this country. Perhaps a partial government shutdown is the way to open up our eyes! We can survive a shutdown and less government will make us more independent.
