I don't know what they're smoking.
If I had my way
If I had my way in this wicked world
If I had my way
I would tear this old building down

Hey, stamping their little feet always works with Mom!
You do realize that the term "government shutdown" is a hyperbolic euphemism, right?
..........Sir, you leave out an important few words, to wit:...........”many conservatives think that UNDER THE APOCALYPTIC Circumstances we are in it is better to NOT borrow ANY MORE MONEY and apportion out on a priority basis the 2.5 trillion in income the government has”........
This decidely IS NOT “shutting the government down”...the government will go on no matter what..........just on a much reduced basis.
you are just repeating the favorite Dimocratic talking point when you even use the words “shut the Gov’t. down”.............thats a DIM/MSM co-operative scare tactic and you are, for the most part, on the wrong forum to be repeating Dim talking points and scare tactics.............
Basically, most of us are not smoking anything and never have. We’re just tired of the damn government destroying our kids and grandkids future by borrowing trillions and printing worthless trillions while using the scare tactic of “shut the gov’t down”..............!!!!! The feds should be permanently enjoined by Constitutional edict from borrowing money without a super majority in both houses.
Because it advances our (the right's) interests even if it doesn't advance us politically.
Do you know why the left always wins? Because they think long term. They always move the debate in their direction. They demand a mile, we give them a yard. Before the ink is dry on the compromise, they start demanding two miles.
They are the Borg. They never quit pushing. And until we adopt their tactics of demanding the ultra- radical and settling for the radical, we'll continue to lose as we have for 100 years.
You want to be a winner, do what the winners do.
If we had conservative leaders who know how to play a dirty little game called Politics, it would be an excellent idea.
Did you forget how the left essentially “shut down” a portion of the government out in the midwest recently? The government unions “shut down” the government whenever they need to promote their cause and make a gain. And it works well...because they know how to use it politically.
What does shutting down the government mean? Have you swallowed the propaganda BS that it means shutting everything down, grinding all government services to a halt?
Well that would be incorrect. What they want to do is keep the essential services up-and-running but shut down the non-essential services.
That is EXACTLY what we need to do.
If you don’t pay your electric bill, the utility company SHUTS DOWN YOUR ELECTRICITY.
Well the leftist who ran this country into the ground for the past 5 years HAVE NOT BEEN PAYING THEIR BILLS.
We need an orchestrated campaign to communicate to the people where we are fiscally, how we got here, why we need to shut SOME portions of our government down, AND WE NEED TO PLAY POLITICS IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE LEFT LOSES.
These G-D Republicans keep caving to these effing tyrants and giving ground every day.
AND I’M SICK OF OUR SIDE RUNNING AND HIDING. WE NEED TO SHOVE IT DOWN THEIR THROATS.
the last time a republican congress shut down the govt was followed by a second term of slick william...
for one it would save adding 900 billion to the national debt. This would curb inflation and protect the dollar. Two a six month shutdown would create jobs...the government not destroying the economy would allow the economy to breathe...three it would teach the people that we do not need government at these levels...
Emotionally, I'd love to see the govt shut down. Rationally, I know it would only backfire on the Republicans. The MSM would enthusiastically publish the lies and distortions uttered by their masters, the Democrats, and the majority of the American public would believe them. I think the FReepers who want a shutdown don't remember what happened last time.
