OK....life can be so simple if applied correctly. Write your state reps demanding that everything be shut down in Washington until the board problems are fixed to the approval of all of us. Include in this....their pay and no pay raises will be allocated until the boarder is shut down. I'm not preaching the idea of taking over our government, but I am saying that our people can shut them down if we really want to.
While I appreciate the intent behind your suggestion, I don't understand how you envision us accomplishing what you envision.
Our demands that the government be shut down will be ignored (just like our demands that the border be sealed).
Not only that, but you can't cause a sufficient number of citizens to express outrage when only a small majority of them know, or care, about what's going on at the border. The combination of unaccountability (on the part of our elected 'representatives') and apathy (on ours) doesn't make a very strong case for the success of a shut down.
You want to control DC's money? they'll either print more and borrow or confiscate what you have shorted them along with severe penalty and interest. To shut them down merely means those with "entitlements" and living off taxpayer aide will be the first to suffer the ill effects, not the Stiff Suit politician of DC who has feathered his own nest well. Since they hold the resource strings - it's probable their hold-out would endure far longer than the common person engaging in revolt.
